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.

On the heavier side and locked down some rotors. The gold color is fire.

Look like great brakes/don’t work with Campy 10 levers

I bought these brakes after reading a lot of great reviews and youtube videos. The FAQs on the Equal website even state that they will work with the short pull needed for Campy levers. My local mechanic has spent too many hours trying to get them to work without success. I now have $400 brakes that won’t stop the bike.

wow. truly different.

these brakes are just like the hydraulics but without the hassle: they are amazing. true, they dont self-adjust as hydros do. but that is the only issue, and it's not really an issue...
i was skeptical, having used all kinds of mechanical discs. anyone who claims that v-brakes or other good rim brakes are not as good as discs...well, i respectfully disagree. VO has some super powerful rim brakes. but in a disc brake world (thank you monopoly capitalism), these are supreme!

Excellent brakes which come with everything needed!

These are excellent brakes! I was very impressed with the kit that came with the calipers, it includes everything you'll need (normal and compressionless cable housing, flat and drop bar inner cables, rear caliper screws for a variety of dropout thicknesses, cable caps and adapters, and the front 140/160 mount adapter and screws). Plus the instructions are very detailed and include torque specs, a detailed procedure for setting the pad location adjustments, and straight forward steps for centering the caliper over the rotor. I followed the recommendation of running standard cable under my drop bar tape and then switching to compressionless after for the front brake and once onto the down tube for the rear brake. Rear brake is slightly more squishy than the front but still plenty of stopping power.
They were easy to setup following the instructions and have gobs of stopping power along with good modulation. I dislike servicing hydraulic brakes so I'm glad to have found the Equals!
Picture of rear brake uses a Velo Orange 160mm rotor adapter which is not included with the kit. Bike has a 10mm thick flat mount area of the dropout and the Growtac included 20mm screws were used to attach the 160 adapter.

Best Mechanical Brake on the Market

I bought these to replace the Sram Rival hydraulic brakes that came with my gravel bike. In my opinion they have superior stopping power matched with easy maintenance and adjustability, something lacking with hydraulic systems. Love these so much I'm already looking at obtaining my next set. Don't hesitate, these brakes are worth every penny.
