The best gets better.
Many of you are probably familiar with eeBrakes, and they're
pretty much the only brakes that we know of that drop some serious grams that
still work well enough that we wouldn't hesitate running them on our own
bikes. It's ideal for a high-end weight saving upgrade that doesn't
sacrifice on braking power. But because of the company's small size,
its ability to offer these brakes to those wanting to dole out the cash
for them has been limited, but the recent partnership with Cane Creek
has changed that. With Cane Creek's larger production capabilities,
eeBrakes G4 Caliper Brake is now available for anyone looking to upgrade their
stopping performance while still providing exceptional modulation without the
need to jump on the disc-brake bandwagon.
The body of the caliper is made from a strategic mix of
high-grade aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel bits, and the resulting
design boasts impressive strength and stiffness, which increases modulation and
braking power. At the top, the cable runs into the caliper at the center rather
than to the side as found in most rim brake calipers. EeBrakes calls this Cross
Cable Path, and it moves the brake cable out of the wind for increased
The eeBrake G4 is a wider design optimized for 22 – 28mm
rims, comes with a stiffer black arch spring, a receives a revised
one-piece center adjuster with built-in resistance for easier adjustment.
The Cane Creek eeBrakes Caliper Brake is compatible with
frames using conventional center brake mount systems, Campy, Shimano, and SRAM
levers, and Shimano-style brake pads. Brake pads are not included.
