DESCRIPTION

Modern mountain bikes have redefined what riders are capable of, pushing the requirements for heavy-duty power further than ever before. Maven Ultimate is SRAM's answer to that evolution, with monstrous 18 and 19.5-millimeter pistons driving 50% more power than Code. But best-in-class power means nothing unless you’re able to harness it. Swinglink translates rider input for progressive power throughout the lever pull, maintaining SRAM’s signature ride feel. And because of a stiff 4-bolt caliper that sheds an incredible amount of heat, that feel remains consistent, so the last corner feels like the first corner. But with so much baseline power on hand, there is more range than ever before to tune the ride qualities to exactly how you want with different pad materials, and rotor sizes. Maven Ultimate pairs a sleek high polish lever body to a caliper with machined edges and titanium hardware for a finish worthy of any modern super bike. And for unrivaled ease of customization, features tool-free Reach and Contact Point Adjust. Maven is the expert, but Maven Ultimate is the pinnacle.

All Power. All Control.

Maven is the absolute most powerful brake SRAM has ever made. Usable power for efficiency and tunability. Extreme power for elevated speed and control on ever-more demanding terrain. Maven gives you the power to progress. The boundless power of confidence. The power of more endurance and less fatigue, letting you leverage subtlety and consistency to open the aperture of your abilities.

More Power

Maven produces nearly 50% more power than one of the most capable brakes ever, SRAM Code. While it’s tempting to focus on this fact alone, Maven is about more than brute force.

Less Effort

 

More important than overall power is usable power. With Maven, it takes 32% lighter force at the lever to generate the same amount of power as Code, reducing fatigue and boosting control for rowdy DH terrain, relentless e-mtb laps, and long enduro stages. Ride harder, and longer, Maven delivers the best of both worlds.

 

Power in Surplus

With four caliper pistons measuring 19.5mm and 18mm, there’s no way around it: Maven caliper pistons are simply huge, providing more force against the pads for more friction with less effort.

Four Bolts for Power

 

Measure any brake caliper under power and you’ll find flex. Maven’s four caliper body bolts aren’t just for show. They reduce power loss at the caliper, translating to a solid feel in the lever, befitting its power.

Better Ratio

Huge caliper pistons mean nothing unless the ratio of piston size in the lever is designed to work with them. Power is determined by the relationship between these piston sizes, and Maven delivers a superior optimization of this ratio.

Progressive Power for Control

 

Optimized for Maven, SwingLink delivers a rate of leverage that changes throughout the lever stroke. The farther you pull along the arc, the more power Maven sends to the pistons. This progressive power delivery offers unrivalled control. As opposed to the binary characteristic of an “on/off” feel.

To Beat Heat, Harness Heat.

The common misconception is that heat is a brake’s worst enemy. The fact is, heat is essential. For a brake to be powerful and consistent, it must retain enough heat in the system but avoid quick fluctuations between hot and cold. It’s an art. An art where Maven shines.

Smart Thermal Mass

 

Maven calipers provide greater performance consistency by maintaining optimal operating temperatures for longer durations. Built for greater thermal mass, they take longer to heat up, keep excess heat at bay, yet retain optimal heat so as to not cool down too fast. When the caliper avoids the peaks and valleys of hot and cold, consistency of performance reaches totally new levels.
