Velo Orange Grand Cru Zeste Cantilever Brakes Front & Rear
The Zeste Brakes may be the most powerful and most adaptable cantilever brakes we’ve tried. Low-profile cantilever brakes are a favorite among cyclo-tourists and commuters because the design helps them clear luggage and, on small frames, your heels. Dirt trail riders and cyclo-cross’ers will appreciate the double plate design for superior mud-clearing.
The brake’s strength and easy modulation is due to the extra-long arms for increased mechanical advantage. But just as important is their excellent adjustability:
There are spring tension adjusters on each arm for easy centering.
Up and down adjustment in the brake pad slot results in greater frame and fork compatibility; not all canti studs are in exactly the same place on every bike due to manufacturing tolerances or intended specification.
A barrel adjuster at the end of the straddle wire means easier setup and fine tuning for perfect clearance and wire angle. You’ll wonder why all canti brakes don’t have these.
Brake pad holders have adjustable toe-in.
High-quality, included pads help you stop quickly and safely.
The pivot bolts and washers are stainless steel for long term corrosion resistance.
Price is for two sets, a bike’s worth. Includes straddle hangers, mounting bolts, and cable end caps.
