These Flat Mount Equal Disc Brakes from Growtac provide excellent modulation and power with a compact and lightweight design - perfect for your road, gravel, and touring bike.

In testing, we've found that the modulation is predictable, the caliper and system stiffness is confidence-inspiring, and the lever feel is natural and comfortable - offering superior performance compared to most other mechanical disc brake calipers on the market. 

Equal brakes are developed and manufactured in Japan. 

  • Cable Pull: Road, short pull
  • Weight per caliper: 135g
  • Pad Actuation: Single piston
  • Adaptors/Mounts Included: Front: 140mm or 160mm rotor // Rear: not included*
  • Japanese-made cables and housing included!

What's included in the box:

  • 2x Growtac Equal Flat Mount Brake Calipers
  • 2x road brake cables
  • 2x mtb brake cables
  • 1x front flat mount adaptor for 140mm or 160mm rotor.
  • 2x compressionless housing (stiff)
  • 2x non-compressionless housing (flexy)
  • Bunch of housing endcaps
  • Mounting hardware for the rear brake

* Please note that if you are mounting these brakes onto a frame designed for a 140mm rear rotor without adapting, but plan to run a 160mm rotor, you will need a rear flat mount adaptor.

Installation instructions can be found here (pdf).

For replacement pads, you can use Shimano K04, K03, and K05S-RX pads. You'll want to retain the Growtac pad assembly bolt, though, as that is unique to the Growtac calipers.

Nice but I got the wrong brakes

Forgot mine was post mount but got flat mounts but the folks at the taipei bike works were kind enough to get adaptors to make it work super nice

Good Brakes - with one quibble.

So far, so good - the calipers are easy to adjust and function flawlessly. After a couple of test rides I’m quite happy with these Growtac brakes. My one issue has been that the cable anchor bolts (set screws) are too soft (aluminum) and strip out very easily (4Nm torque with a 3mm allen wrench) - so I went to the hardware store and picked up a few stainless steel M6 set screws as replacements and that has solved the problem.

They are fantastic!

Absolutely fantastic

Setup; SRAM Rival road brifters pulling these through full-length internally routes housing

The calipers are beautifully made, they’re a hair grainy/stiff out of the box but became silky smooth after a couple actuations in my hand.

The included cable housing is a joy, use the compressible housing for the last bend into the brifters and the metal junctions to connect to run compression less from there. The housing and cables combine for an absolutely silky lever feel with great power.

Speaking of power, holy moly these are strong. Because mechanical advantage increases through the pull you have a very good amount of modulation early in the travel and then all the power in the world at the bottom.

I’ll risk being branded a heretic - these are better than hydros. I chose them because I needed an easy-to-maintain bike for travel and I was hoping they’d be good enough to get by. Now I’m wondering if I should “upgrade” my other bikes too.

Vs SRAM hydraulic, which they directly replaced on this bike, the lever feel is better with smoother throw (!), the power is better, the pistons aren’t constantly stuck because of the corrosive brake fluid and you can set them up with just a 3 & 4mm Allen keys. Great success.

Growtac Equal brakes

Was looking for a better stopping brake. The brakes I had were not the best at stopping my fulling loaded touring bike. The Growtac brakes are amazing! Easy to set up and comes with everything you need. Highly recommend.
