AVID Mech Rim Brake Single Digit Ultimate Pro
Familiarity breeds confidence (not a bad thing to have when you're out riding solo in the wilderness). Avid Single Digit brakes are the choice of riders who seek supreme performance in a simple design.
Lightweight, powerful, intuitive, simple. Each one is Avid-engineered with Force Vector Alignment® to ensure more energy reaches the rim with less effort.
Sooner or later you face the inexorable truth that what comes down must first go up. And on long-distance rides in the mountains, every minuscule gram counts. The Single Digit SL brake provides the same great performance as our regular brakes, sans the excess weight. (Competitive cyclists will take note). Hey, nothing wrong with exploiting any advantage you can get.
Single Digit Ultimate, the ultimate rim brake. This sleek CNC rim brake pivots on sealed cartridge bearings so you’ll get a smooth, effortless stop. In fact, its stopping power will amaze even disc brake devotees. It also has a lefty/righty reversible noodle which allows you to route the cable from, you guessed it, the left or right lever. Beautifully sculpted from solid aluminum billet, it’s very lightweight - just as you'd expect from Avid.
