Pretty sure it's just TRP.

AFAIK TRP Hylex are the only fully hydraulic ones. Other options include hybrid systems like HY/RD or Juin Tech calipers. Though my LBS describes such things as the worst of both worlds!

My Hylex are absolutely excellent. Have put thousands of miles on them and they've been trouble free.

Had to redo the fluid when I let the pads get so worn that the pistons were pushed out, entirely my fault. They're very good brakes, the levers feel nice, and they're blooming reliable

Apologies for the last two - I thought they were hydraulic too. The Force lever is definitely hydraulic.

Hmm I though that was just a left hand lever but it does seem to suggest a pair, right enough - good find!
Bit spendy though.... :???:

I think it's just the single lever, not a pair. And yes, it's expensive. But at least you now have a choice.

I remember looking at them before, I never did manage to decode the SRAM info :???:

It says

Run as a set on single speed machines, or for the ultimate in 1x road, pair with a Force 11-speed shifter

Which implies you can have 2 on a ss bike or just use the left on a 1x setup, but in the specifications it says

Orientation, Left

Which I read as they only make a left one? So do you have to run two left levers if you have a ss :lol:
