Velo Orange offers the Grand Cru brakes as a super-quality long reach (47-57) caliper that are super stiff, probably the stiffest long reach brakes ever made. In testing we found these to outperform every other long reach brake and many short reach racing brakes that cost twice as much. The dual pivot design offers superb modulation and power, very important on a steep mountain descent. The pivots are very smooth. There is clearance for 45mm fenders.
Ideal for any classic steel racer or light touring bike. Handmade in a little shop in Taiwan run by a former bike racer and engineer, hand-polished (not anodized). Available in black or silver (price is per pair, 355gms per pair including shoes, pads, nuts).
