When good brakes aren’t good enough.
That noise you hear is the cheer of every cyclocross, tandem, recumbent and sticker-laden courier bike rider in the world. Finally, a brand-spankin-new, better-than-ever brake...the new Shorty Ultimate. Avid's in-line cable adjustor puts an end to the days of needing three hands to set up and adjust your brakes. Want a firmer feel? Need to move the pads in or out a bit? Now you can do it all one-handed, while straddling the bike and eating a pastrami sandwich. Because the difference between good brakes and great brakes is in the details, Avid added a cable quick-release that makes popping off your wheel effortless. Oh, and did we mention the new Shorty Ultimate is also even lighter than before?
