In all brakes that characterizes the braking power it is mainly the pumping brake, that is, what the pressure does get to the brake caliper pistons.
This part that constitutes the braking system, is the one that determines whether the braking is modulated or aggressive.
SRAM has created the brakes for everyone.
The dial Contact Point Adjust (pictured above) adjusts the pressure of the brake fluid, allowing you to set the brake depending on how you like the slowdown.
Seconds to the carbon range top, give freedom to your braking!

Contact Point Adjustment™
Some people like the instantaneous power of a short lever throw. Others prefer the feel of a longer throw. With Contact Point Adjust, you can pick the position you want your fingers to be in when your brakes are engaged. It’s a quick and easy way to customize the feel of your brakes without having to move the pads. It’s also a way to balance both brake levers to feel exactly the same.
