Avid Shorty Ultimate Cantilever Brake

The cyclocross brake weve all been waiting for. Plenty of mud clearance and adjustability at half the price of the brakes that have been the "gold standard" of the cross circuit for a while now.
  • Sold individually
  • Sets up easily with wide (max power) or narrow (thigh/shoulder clearance) stance
  • Straddle cable has built-in inline cable adjuster
  • Brake shoes use standard road inserts, making it easy to drop in your carbon-specific-compound brake shoes without the need for special carriers
  • claimed 115 grams

Great setup!
Very cool brakes, they look awesome and work well. There are lots of adjustments that can be made and they have an interesting spring tension set-up which works well. However it takes a bit of time and playing around with it to figure it out and get it working properly. I think I've probably got a little more adjusting to do on mine before they are perfect.

PROS: Attractive Design, Lightweight

CONS: Difficult To Install

BEST USES: Cyclocross, Upgrade, Commuter Bike

Great stopping power, easy maintenance
Replacement for stock tektro front brakes that had a very poor carrier design. These improve on every aspect - especially the carrier. Installation is ok in terms of difficulty, instructions are fairly good. They are well designed so maintenance is easy and adjustments shouldn't be needed very often. Going to replace my rear brakes with these as well

PROS: Lightweight, Attractive Design, Durable, Stopping Power

CONS: Difficult To Install

BEST USES: City Biking, Cyclocross, commuting, Commutingcity

Excellent for CX Bike
Avid Shorty Ultimate is perfect for any CX bike with cantilever brake . I was not ready to give up my two years bike for a new bike with disc brake. I decided to upgrade with Avid Shorty Ultimate and wow! brake system is so much better.
