SRAM Guide R

Had the brakes bled at a bike shop but front still spongy. Bought this kit and so easy to use thanks to excellent instructions. Sorted!!

Not bad

Bleeding the brakes on any Mt. bike is a ridiculous procedure and rarely a pleasurable job, however, this kit works works well and is a reasonable price. My only complaint is that there should be some small clamps holding the tube onto the brass fittings as they can pop off whilst you are screwing around for hours trying to get your brakes bled properly. All I did was put a couple of small zip ties around the stub and tighten them up pretty solid. Solved that problem.

Avid Bleed kit

Great wee kit this! Set of instructions and a set of gloves goes a lomg way with a system like this that has a more dangerous fluid. Worth the money especially since the official set from sram is abouy 3 times the price!! And this one works just as well!

Simple for a first timer!

The whole kit comes with instructions that are really simple to use. The kits do not leak, syringes are sturdy, and connecting hoses work really well. I was terrified of bleeding brakes as people had said that it was faffy and that they didn't like it. After I used this though it was so simple.

The Avid kits themselves are really quite expensive, but after using these kits, I have no need to fork out for the factory kits.

If you're new to bleeding, then these are some of the best kits to go for. If you've bled so many brakes in your life and it frustrates you, buy these!

Will this kit bleed SRAM Guide brakes?

This kit is compatible with all SRAM brakes except for the newest (2017-on) SRAM models with their redesigned S4 brake calliper. For this SRAM require that you use their Bleeding Edge tool. However, you will still need a bleed kit and ours can be used with the SRAM Bleeding Edge tool, click here to find out how.

Does this kit bleed Formula brakes too?

Yes. Our bleed adaptors are manufactured to be compatible with all Formula brakes too.

Is 100ml of brake fluid enough to bleed both front and back brakes?

Yes. 100ml will allow you to bleed both brakes 3-4 times.
