If you're looking to maximize stopping power and gain a boatload of modulation, there is no upgrade better than Cane Creek's eeBrakes Direct Mount Caliper Brakes. A recent partnership between Cane Creek and eeCycleworks is bringing increased production capacity and availability for these revered brake calipers. Carrying a well-earned reputation as the lightest yet most powerful rim calipers available, eeBrakes blend exceptional stopping power and modulation that's nearly unheard of on the rim brake side of the spectrum.
The body of the caliper is made from a strategic mix of high grade aluminum, titanium, and stainless steel bits with a unique design that boasts impressive strength and stiffness for increased modulation and braking power compared to any other rim brake caliper. 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 design Cross Cable Path, and it moves the brake cable out of the wind for increased aerodynamic advantages.
The Cane Creek eeBrakes Direct Mount Brake is compatible with Shimano-style brake pads and frames using the direct mount standard. Brake pads are not included.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
We all love lightweight bikes and parts but when it comes at a sacrifice of functionality its not worth it. Fortunately these brakes are both light and function extremely well, very little flex from the caliper and very good braking power. I would put them to the test against anything sram or shimano is offering as far as braking and they are also about a third of a pound ligher per set. A must have for any lightweight build.
