Simply the best.

If you're familiar with eeBrakes, then you've probably already added them to your shopping cart, and if you aren't, we're here to introduce you. Long renowned as one of the most powerful and at the same time lightest rim brake calipers available, eeBrakes have long been sought out for high-end upgrades to already race-worthy steeds. The company's small size has traditionally meant wait times and limited numbers, but a recent partnership with Cane Creek looks to change that. Taking advantage of Cane Creek's larger production capabilities, eeBrakes Caliper Brakes are now available for any of us looking to upgrade our stopping power and get exceptional modulation without jumping onto the clunky disc-brake trend.

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 aerodynamic advantages.

The Cane Creek eeBrakes Caliper Brake is compatible with frames using conventional center brake mount systems and Shimano-style brake pads. Brake pads are not included.

  • Powerful stopping power and modulation in a lightweight package
  • Quick Strut release makes for easy wheel install and removal
  • User-friendly, tool-less adjustability
  • Compatible with Shimano-style brake pads

Great Brakes, light, easy to modulate

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had them for over a month, in the past I have had, shimano ultegra and sram red brakes, these are by far the lightest and the performance is very, very good, modulation is great and paired with jagwire cables even better!

Hits all the marks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wanted brakes that were light weight, looked amazing, were easy to adjust and of course stopped well. These definitely hit the mark in every category. Love the way they look, installation was very simple, adjustment is very easy and stopping power is very very good. Extremely happy with them.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I recently replaced the SRAM Red (2016) brakes with these. Although the stopping power feels similar (and is outstanding), the modulation is much more consistent and the adjustability is vastly, vastly superior. Centering (and keeping the brakes centered) is no longer a chore.

These are truly stunningly good...

Not much weight, not much stopping power

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

New brakes on new bike with new enve SES wheels. Minimal stopping. I only weigh 137 lbs and steep descents were dangerous not really even possible to stop - that bad. Thought it was brake pads which enve replaced but no better. Then tried my sweet-braking Zipp nsws with Zipp pads and no better. Then tried dura ace brakes and problem solved. At least 50% more braking power. Perhaps the direct mount version would flex less but the regular version was terrible. Thank you CC for the easy replacement

Thm fibulas are lighter and work better but do not accommodate a wide rim

I'm 100% sure this is user error. With wheels as wide as the 3.4s, you would have needed to take out some of the pad spacers. With them at the stock position, there won't be enough leverage.

Tommy - "user error" is an interesting analysis since COMPETITIVE CYCLIST built up the bike (not me nor a local shop) and I had repeated discussions with my CC sales rep as to the possible problem before switching to Dura Ace. Also, as noted, I did try the brakes with Zipp NSW's which are not as wide and had identical bad braking. If your analysis is correct, then you need to teach your mechanics team how to set up those brakes.

I don't know the real cause of your issue with them but I have had the same brakes on two of my bikes, an EVO Black and my current Pinnerallo F8 first with Enve 3.4's (old style) and then a new set of 3.4's with the enhanced braking surface. On either bike or set of wheels, these brakes were (and are) fantastic. i only run Enve pads (they are different with the enhanced braking area). As I went to the latest tubless rims (3.4's) the width changed so I had to adjust the spacers (I assume that is what Tommy is talking about) but even with my limited bike knowledge I got them to work fine. I was running DuraAce and these do a better job of modulating. We run the hills in the Driftless area of Southern Wisconsin and they haul my bike and my 185lbs ass down to a stop without a problem. I am a big fan of this brake set.

Will these work with larger diameter road tires like Vitoria 28mm?

Late answer here, but just in case you're still out there in the jungle of research. I've witnessed a couple people in the area riding them with 28's, one specifically with the Corsa G+. The manufacturers specs say that they will easily 'clear' a 28mm tire. I'm sure there may be some variance as to what rim width your running, but all signs say yes.

Yes, I have been riding on Ardeenes Plus rims and Vitoria 28mm clinchers, no problem.
