General Information
Updated version of this incredibly lightweight brake.
I have black and silver. The arms are forged alloy- Not titanium.
The original brake blocks had integrated shoes and work well but are short so modern blocks improve power.
Jeannie Longo used these in the Olympics 2008 to miss a bronze medal by 1.6 seconds...She has used them through her career, I saw them on her bike in 1992 which encouraged me to get some and continue to use a rear one to date.
