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

Fabulous

These are truly excellent brakes - the overall power, modulation and ease of adjustment are top notch. The fact that they come bundled with a complete package of high quality compressionless housing, cables and hardware makes the asking price a bit more palatable. That said If I were on a budget I would have no problem using something like the TRP Spyre (which is a fine brake for the money), but if you can afford the extra coin I think these are well worth the asking price.

Great Product

Not cheap but worthwhile investment. They have paid for themselves on hilly rides. People have commented numerous times on the green color and asked about the brakes.

second pair!

these brakes are fantastic; and this is my second pair. they take regular Shimano pads that are nonmetallic; the included pads are excellent. the included housing is fantastic -- and no doubt make for zero compression. but I didn't even use it!! -- I used Velo Oranges regular 'ol housing, and the brakes work great. I found them to be completely rebuildable. I cant tell the difference between these and the Pauls, except that these are more affordable. they blow away all other mechanical brakes: and I've used them all.

After an initial issue with the setting bolts loosening up on a long gravel ride, the ease of maintenance beats the Hayes and TRP Spyres I've used previously. Currently using them with Tiagra Shimano Road levers and the stopping power is intense.

Growtac Equal - Small but Mighty!

I have a coupled road travel tandem. Hydraulic brakes aren’t practical in my situation. I’ve tried several cable-activated and hybrid brakes including Avid BB7, TRP Spyre, TRP Hy/Rd, Juin Tech GT-P, and Paul Klamper. These are the first brakes that have truly felt like the hydraulics on my mountain bike. They engage quickly and with great power. Much easier on my hands as I don’t have to squeeze the brakes so hard now. Yet there is still the ability to feather the brakes, using a lighter touch. The brakes are easy to set up, once you’ve got all the housing cut and in place. That’s the challenging part. Follow the Growtac instructions. I’ve always used the other major brand of compressionless housing. The Growtac housing is better, albeit a half millimeter thicker. The pads are quiet and seem to be very high quality. I think the key to success with these brakes is to look at all of the components as a system. I used their compressionless housing but also used small pieces of their standard housing at the curves by the brifters. I installed the calipers and I used their specific pads. I’m convinced the outcome is optimal this way. Finally, these brakes are compact and really beautiful. Expensive, but very worth it.
