Cyclocross is hard enough without having to worry about brake failure or ineffectiveness. When you're bombing through the mud, you need a brake that's stiff, powerful, and has enough clearance for pesky mud to pass through. Basically, you need a brake like the FSA K-Force Cyclocross Brake. Performing all of the above with a lightweight carbon fiber and titanium construction, the K-Force brake provides all of the characteristics necessary for slowing in the nastiest of conditions.
FSA's K-Force Cyclocross Brake expresses supreme engineering prowess at every turn. Each arm has been designed in an oversized, 50mm configuration that utilizes a two piece carbon fiber construction, joined with titanium hardware. The new design improves every aspect of braking. In the weight department, the K-Force's two pieces shaves grams by eliminating the necessity for a clunky, one-piece arm. While over in the functionality zone, the oversized characteristics also increase stopping power and rigidity.
FSA engineered the K-Force brake to accommodate the needs of 'cross racers that have been skimmed over within the industry. The K-Force features a wide-open design that allows ample mud clearance, and the new brake also allows easy adjustability to spring tension. It features an integrated barrel adjuster, that's intended to operate with conventional straddle cable, to adjust cable tension. For the pads, FSA included an orbital adjuster and a road pad holder that permits streamlined wheel-swaps between carbon and alloy braking surfaces.
The FSA K-Force Cyclocross Brake is available as a pair only, and in the color Black. The brakes have a 20-30mm reach, and each arm is 50mm in length.
