With the industry finest cool stop pads as standard, have no fear that you’ll be able to stop on a dime with these brakes (assuming you’ve set them up right and don’t have a contaminated set up)
All Motolite’s have the capability of running a larger size wheel. In other words, the arms allow the pads to travel way up the arm so you could say, run a 650b or 700c wheel on a bike designed for 26”wheels.
This brake is 100% machined in-house, from 6061 Aluminum. Like all our brakes, these feature our over-sized sealed pivot sleeves machined to a tolerance of plus or minus one thousandths of an inch. And of course our independently adjustable square wire springs keep everything snappy and balanced.
The quick release mechanism is super simple and always reliable. Why doesn’t everybody do it like this?
Yes, disc brakes are taking over. We’re fine with that (ahem, Klampers), but if you want to keep things simple, avoid that inevitable disc noise, or have a classic Ritchey that’s been hanging in the garage since the early 90’s needing a makeover: these are the brakes for you.
