This is what I now use on my gravel bike. I love the way both pads move (rather than one) and they are so easy to set up. Power and modulation (with the TRP compressionless cableset) is excellent. I really dont feel the need to spend more or go full hydro.
The Spyre SLC, a mechanical disc brake that offers superior performance with incredibly easy setup. This is a dual piston actuated mechanical disc brake caliper which provides precise clamping force. This translates into even pad and rotor wear because the rotor does not need to flex to one side during braking. We added a simple cable barrel adjuster to make fine tuning easy. All of this in an incredibly thin 40mm, 146g package, that works with any drop bar levers on the market.
Rotors and adapters are sold separately.
- Weight: 146g per caliper
