Review: TRP's New G-Spec Trail SL Brake
@prattbrewboy: Apologies for the misunderstanding we do not claim to be compatible with a Shimano bleed kit. We state the fluid, pads, and bleed procedures will work between both brands. While this means you will need a bleed kit it does mean you will not need special fluid. With TRP/Tektro producing over 6 million hydraulic brakes a year for the past 15 years all using the same bleed fitting, you should be able to find a bike shop near you that has the correct bleed fittings to service your brakes. As most major hydraulic brake brands (Sram, Shimano, Magura) we also require a specific bleed fitting to service our specific design. Due to our bleed port design being different than Shimano at the lever a TRP/Tektro bleed kit has always been required to service our brakes or (Sram, Shimano, Magura). Since our basic bleed kit comes with all the bleed fittings required there is no need to also have the bleed nipple on the caliper. The bleed fitting accomplishes the same thing as the bleed nipple. This allows the nipple to be removed for lower weight, easier cleaning, and improved aesthetics (yes all minor benefits but benefits nonetheless). If you can not get sufficient information from your local wholesaler we suggest contacting us at info@trpbrakes.com and we can provide any information you need.

@Teebirdjones: At the moment we do not but we should very soon. That being said you can use a bleed fitting and hose half filled with fluid. This will accomplish the same thing as the bleed cup, allow air to rise and fluid to take its place.

Review: TRP's New G-Spec Trail SL Brake
@prattbrewboy: We are sorry to hear you had that experience. While our brake fluid and pads are cross-compatible you do need a TRP/Tektro bleed kit to service our brakes. Pending distributor inventory levels these can be purchased through our distributor in your country. This can also be purchased directly from our US office here: https://www.trpcycling.com/product/basic-bleed-kit/ Our basic bleed kit comes with two bleed fittings so one can be attached at the lever and one can be threaded directly into the caliper. We removed the bleed nipple in favor of a threaded bleed port. This helps improve the bleed procedure and was directly influenced by Gwin's professional mechanic's noting he was removing the bleed nipple to get the best brake bleed possible. Also, the caliper just looks sick with the bleed nipple gone.

Our bleed process is the same as Shimano the only this different is we use a larger port for the bleed fitting. This means you will need a TRP/Tektro bleed fitting for these brakes.

Review: TRP's New G-Spec Trail SL Brake
@SpillWay, in short, they are two completely different brakes. If you are asking which one is for you think of it this way. The G-spec trail will add a little weight but improved power for more aggressive trail riding. If you have never wanted more power with the Slate T4 take the weight savings and keep shredding. The G-spec Trail SL uses a similar construction to our downhill brake but uses mismatched pistons to achieve modulation tuned for the slower average speed trail bikes are ridden at. It will have more power than a Slate T4 at a slightly higher weight. The Slate T4 which was designed several years ago was optimized for minimal weight with benefits of four-piston brake that won't break the bank...

The New Brake That Aaron Gwin Helped Shape - Taipei Cycle Show
Think quality over quantity. Yes, he uses them less than most but when he does use them he is going faster and braking harder than anyone in the world.
