Known for being the one momentous race of the season, the 2020 DH World Championships might just become the only race for many Athletes this season. This shapes Leogang, Austria as the prized venue to dream about gold.
Adding to the special occasion with custom bikes and custom parts, TRP is bringing a special golden edition of its DH-R EVO brakes for their sponsored athletes.
The discussion for customizing parts started early this year at test-camps before the proposed season even got underway.
“We picked up a great deal of excitement from our teams about special colors. So we gave gold a try since all our teams are running golden suspension.”
– Colin Esquibel, the TRP R&D Test Engineer
With the Golden DH-R EVO, the function and features are 100% the same as the Silver DH-R EVO that was launched in May of this year. This ensures the same power, the same modulation, and the same 223/2.3 mm rotor, now with a custom World Championship color fit for any dream build.
The best part! TRP will make these Special Edition Gold DH-R EVO brakes available for sale to all customers at the same time the athletes are celebrating their World Championship success, on Monday October 12th.

A mix of steeper courses and the fact that many riders switched from 27,5 to 29-inch wheels raised the bars during the last season. Just of the sudden good wasn’t good enough anymore.
“Bikes and speeds are increasing each year, so if frame and suspensions are changing, you have to change the brakes, wheels, and other parts. It’s the logical path to follow, we were riding 200mm/180mm when we raced on 26-inch wheels, everybody rides 203 with 27 (inch wheels), so it makes sense to have bigger 223/2,3 mm rotors with 29inch wheels.”
