TRP worked with reigning world cup champion Aaron Gwin to develop the Slate T4. Out of the gate, he was impressed with the initial level of performance, but he did have a list of improvements needed to achieve world cup wins.
The TRP development team improved nearly every part of the brake and tested it on the world cup circuit throughout the season. TRP then carried some of these changes over to their Slate trail brake set.
TRP took most of the changes made to the DH-R EVO brakes and put them into the Slate T4. This brake features the same ergonomic lever made from cast aluminum, and a forged CNC’d caliper, both of which have been given a matte black finish. It also features a new and stiffer 5.0 mm hose for easier internal routing and better hydraulic power transfer. Riders will also find benefits in the four-piston caliper, tool-free reach adjust, and top-loading caliper.
