Stroker Ace

The Stroker Ace features Hayes’ first four-piston, forged mono-bloc caliper and our biggest pads ever, giving the Ace tremendous heat management capabilities. We’ve also designed a longer lever for increased leverage at the bar. Mated to the proven Stroker master cylinder, this makes the Ace our most powerful brake ever, while advancing the already unmatched Stroker modulation. At a system weight of 427g (including 6″ rotor and hardware), the Ace trumps all the other gravity-oriented brakes in the deck.

Stroker Gram

The Stroker Trail and Carbon were already tremendously capable across a range of applications, but we knew we could make an even better brake for weight-obsessed cross-country racers and pedal-up/ pedal-down all-mountain types. The result is the Stroker Gram. What sets the Gram apart from all the other models in the Stroker family is the removal of non-structural material from the master cylinder (confirmed by finite element analysis), leaving behind a form that is as strong as it is sexy. We’ve also dressed up both the master cylinder and the caliper in titanium hardware, and thrown in our lightweight aluminum-backed pads. Sure, there are lighter brakes out there, but none match the Stroker Gram’s combination of weight, power, modulation, serviceability, durability, and value.

Stroker Carbon

How do you make a good bike component better? Make it lighter and carbon fiber-ier! The Stroker Carbon packs all the features of the Stroker Trail, but with the addition of a carbon fiber lever. We also substituted aluminum-backed pads in place of the Trail’s standard steel-backed pads. The result is almost certainly the most capable, lightweight (387g), and controllable brake at its price.

Stroker Trail

The Stroker Trail improves on the Ryde in a number of ways, beginning with an indexed, tool-free reach-adjust dial that makes setup a snap. The caliper features an adjustable banjo for tight, snag-free hose routing, plus Hayes’ signature tool-free pad removal. The Stroker Trail also boasts a greater hydraulic ratio than the Ryde, for enhanced stopping power and modulation. No wonder the Stroker Trail has already been ridden to numerous World Cup championships.

Stroker Ryde

Stroker Ryde

The Ryde brake platform is the lowest priced Stroker model, but it’s anything but entry-level. The essential Stroker ingredients are all there – the radial master cylinder, the increased fluid volume, the ergonomic lever design, and the proven power and modulation. At a total system weight of 400g (including 6″ rotor and hardware), the Ryde packs higher performance at a lower price and weight than all its competitors.

New for MY11:
Longer lever for greater power and modulation.
Ryde comp features overmolded clamp plastic reservoir cap, and steel piston MC.
