The SRAM S500 Road Brake Lever Set is a brake-only design lever set that is perfect for riders in need of levers to complement their single-speed build, or bar-end shifter/ downtube shifter build. The S500 features a composite body with aluminum brake lever blades and has an ergonomic design similar the higher-end SRAM DoubleTap lever. Internal cable routing keeps your handlebar clean and a tunable reach adjust allows you dial in the perfect fit.
Brake-only design, no integrated shifters
Great for singlespeeds or bikes with bar-end or down tube shifters
I recently decided to update my 1987 Basso racing bike. I just couldn't stand the pain and numbness I got holding the hoods of my old Shimano 105 brake levers. I installed a new aero handlebar and wanted to update to the newer style brake levers, but since I have my shifters on the down tube I only needed levers for the brakes. I found these I am very happy with them! I had read that some people didn't like that there is no internal return spring in the levers, but they seem to work well with the return spring in the brakes themselves, just not quite as snappy. I am very happy with the performance and ease of installed, as well as the look. Price was good too, and SRAM is a great name.
PROS: Durable, Attractive Design, Lightweight, Easy To Install
I use these on my drop bar Fargo which I took across the country during The American Trail Race. They now have around 8,000 hard miles on them. They show a little wear on the hood covers, but not nearly what I would expect. These have been through the ringer and are still performing admirably. Thanks SRAM.
