Better known for providing wheels, tyres and handlebars for Trek bikes, the Bontrager component line is gradually expanding with the addition of the Speed Limit brakeset.
With a slightly retro single-pivot look, the Speed Limit brake caliper set forms part of the upgrade line that includes such other goodies as a carbon chainset and bars.
Despite the single-pivot appearance, the brakes are in fact dual-pivot and have a clever hidden pivot adding extra leverage to the stopping power.
A caliper-based quick-release system makes these brakes compatible with all road brake levers.Weighing 270g per pair ? 44g lighter than Dura-Ace, these are a good choice for the weight obsessed.
The styling may not be to everyone?s taste, but there is definitely room for more challengers in the high-end road component market, making the Speed Limits a welcome addition and all for £89.99.
