Light brakes with excellent power and control

These 920 road bike callipers smartly undercut Shimanos range-heading Dura-Ace callipers by 60g per pair, and sport titanium hardware and Teflon-coated pivot bushes.

The aluminium quick release has a black anodised face plate and a low friction resin lever, though the absence of click-stop indents here may faze the racer who likes to trim the lever to suit the width of a wheel handed to him at the roadside after a mechanical or puncture.
The 920 callipers and Kool Stop cartridge brakes have a level of modulation that equals the range-heading Campagnolo and Shimano brakes and while less cost effective than, say, upgrading to a set of lighter wheels, they are worthy of consideration if you are building a lightweight from scratch. Also available in a polished finish.
