Grand Cru Long Reach Brakeset, Noir


The Grand Cru Long Reach (47-57mm) caliper brakes are super stiff, probably the stiffest long reach brakes ever made. In testing, we found these to outperform every other long reach brake and many short reach racing brakes that cost twice as much. The smooth, dual-pivot design offers superb modulation and power - very important on a steep mountain descent. There is even clearance for 45mm fenders!

These are made in a small shop in Taiwan run by a former bike racer and engineer. This Noir edition has a polished and black anodized, glossy finish which can be re-polished 25 years down the road to look great forever. The included brake shoes come with high quality pads and take standard Shimano-type replacements.

Wrench and a carbon fork mounting nut are included. 355gms per pair including shoes, pads, and nuts.

Price is per pair. Available in Polished Silver and Noir.
