These brakes have a championship-winning pedigree and are ready to take all of the punishment you can give them. Level TLM puts proven SRAM braking performance and consistency at your fingertips, in a sleek, lightweight design optimised specifically for cross-country and light trail use. Power and modulation are delivered via the Level TLM’s alloy lever blade, DirectLink actuation, DOT 5.1 fluid and our new two-piston, monoblock caliper. The design provides superior heat management for consistent, fade-free performance all day long and the BLEEDING EDGE technology makes maintenance incredibly simple, so your brakes feel great all day — every day.

SRAM's DirectLink lever design provides a solid, positive braking feel as soon as the brake lever is pulled - an uncompromising solution for precise control.
Heat is the enemy of any braking system. Better heat management also helps you ride safer. We found out that it takes three times longer for DOT 5.1 than for DOT 4 to reach boiling point. This ensures smooth and consistent braking power under even more extreme conditions
SRAM’s new brake lever design includes a reshaped bladder that helps regulate and reduce air bubbles. The bladder is specifically shaped to evacuate air from the lever and push the fluid exactly where it’s needed. The result is improved back-pressure relief, which produces dependable braking power and consistency.
Compatible with MatchMaker and MMX
With Matchmaker you save weight and space on your handlebars. Matchmaker incorporates Avid brake handles, SRAM trigger switches and various RockShox controls, all with one tidy, light clamp - a dream come true for handlebar space freaks the world over. The system is available in two versions: Matchmaker X offers space for RockShox XLoc and is compatible with XX and X0 brakes. The conventional Matchmaker is also available and works with any split handlebar clamp and RockShox PushLoc system.
The brake fluid reservoir in SRAM's current lever design is designed for optimum performance and ease of use. The PiggyBack Reservoir offers a simple, failsafe way to manage brake fluid, and also allows for ambidextrous lever placement—so you can switch your levers on the handlebar and run them moto-style without hassle.
Timing Port Closure
A hydraulic brake’s timing port is the connection between the reservoir and the master cylinder bore. When the lever is squeezed, a cup seal passes this area and closes the port, which pressurizes the system. SRAM’s new timing port closure system features durable seals and an ultra-smooth cylinder bore finish, producing dependable braking power and consistency.
