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.

Best disc brakes I’ve owned! Hands down!

These replaced a set of TRP spyres and ultegra hydraulic R8170s…TRP had no bite even with brake pad changes….the ultegra screamed on the front brakes and I’m 50 years old so I do not like bleeding brakes..I got the green growtac equals in flat mount. You get all the bolts and housing you could need….as a matter of fact I only needed the housing from 1 of the 2 packers they give you…….and my bike ( niner rlt rdo) needs full housing front to back. You will have enough to replace your original installation! If you take into account the cost of housing and correct bolt longs does you build I’d say the growth an are a bargain. They are an investment but well worth it. Pad adjustment is excellent!, I haven’t lost my little rubber hole covers as other reviewers have. The only hard part is picking what beautiful color you want!


The pad adjustment mechanism and brake leverage adjustment are superior to any other mech disc caliper I’ve used. Braking power is great. These calipers are worth the money for sure. I would recommend using only compressionless housing even on drop bars, instead of splitting the run between more flexible brake housing and the stiffer compressionless housing. It can make wrapping the bars slightly trickier but will perform better. Instructions are great as well which is a rarity among nice boutique bike parts.

Ritchey Breakaway Carbon. Great Brakes, used the compression less housing cables that came with kit. Much better than TRP Spires Rear 140 and Juin GT4 Front 160.

Great Mechanical Disc Brakes

These are well made brakes with great stopping power and great modulation. Plus they came quickly and with everything I needed to install them. I am very pleased with them and with Velo Orange.
