When we set out to design the best brakes in the world, we knew that simple stopping power wasn’t going to be enough. The best brake would also have to work in perfect harmony with your hand, give you precise control and be easier to install than a virus on your PC. Mission accomplished.
When good brakes aren’t good enough. Our cyclocross brake with the ultimate balance of power, control and weight. New for 2011: The Avid Shorty Ultimate is equipped with an in-line cable adjuster and a quick release. It comes with standard road cartridge pads.
