Paul Components Neo-Retro Cantilevers
An exceptional choice for your latest cross build or rim brake equipped MTB, The Neo-Retro is a wide-profile cantilever brake with a design based
on the geometry of the famous Mafac Tandem brake. Where the Neo-Retro
differs from its classic heritage is in its modern materials and
The arms of the Neo-Retro are machined from lightweight 6061
aluminum. Their T-shaped cross section prevents the brake from flexing
too much under load. The brake pads mount to slots in the arms that allow for vertical
positioning. The toe-in and angle can be fine tuned thanks to the
spherical washers on the brake pads' threaded posts. The long arms give the Neo-Retro lots of mechanical advantage and
supreme mud clearance. However, for smaller frames and those with
panniers, Paul Components recommends their narrower Touring Canti brake.
Like all of Paul Components' brakes, the Neo-Retro has a sealed
pivot mechanism. Rubber seals and a stainless steel bushing keep the
brake arms turning smoothly no matter what you're riding through. The
spring tension can be adjusted in both pivots to center the brake and
to adjust the strength of the return swing.
The Neo-Retro stands out with its stopping power, high
adjustability, low easy maintenance, and classic looks. The brakes come
with their pivots pre-greased and with all necessary hardware.
