Just like the usually much more expensive models produced by other manufacturers, this Trial or CycloCross brake consists of a lightweight, forged aluminium alloy. Weighing in at only 121g, it is very light and has an open design in order to attract as little dirt as possible. The TRIAL's extra rigid construction ensures an optimum pressure point. The TRIAL has 72mm long Cartridge brake pads and the brake's spring tension is adjustable. The TRIAL Cantilever brake is available as a set, which can be mounted either to the front or rear wheel. It comes with the complete fastening material but levers and cables are not included in the scope of delivery. The TRIAL will be delivered in the colour black.
Technologies: Cantilever brake: Cantilever brake is the name for a bicycle rim brake attached to a specific adaptor socket that is mounted on the bicycle frame or on the bicycle fork and applied via a centrally positioned cable. Some of the brake levers are particularly suited for assembly in combination with Cantilever brakes.
Cartridge shoes: Cartridge shoes are two-piece shoes whose brake blocks can be replaced when worn out. The advantage in comparison to normal brake pads is that only the worn out brake pads are being replaced and it is not necessary to adjust the shoes while changing the pads. Only the tension of the brake cable may have to be reduced if the old pad became thinner due to wear and tear.
