Grand Cru Long Reach Brakeset
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. The finish is hand polished, but not anodized; that way they can be re-polished 25 years down the road and look great forever. The included brake shoes come with high quality pads and take standard Shimano-type replacements.
