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.

Replaced the cheap, border line dangerous brakes that came on my gravel bike with these and what a difference they make. The braking power is comparable to the hydraulic brakes on my MTB and the feel is good too!
Hi, had them for a month now, great braking power, more than TRP spyres slc, but as expected not as much power as a hydraulic setup, but with all the benefits of mechanical cable setup. They look great, light and compact and plays nice with internal routed brake cables coming out of the frame. Only downside is the specific brake pad thru axel/fixing bolt, and the cost of getting these spares from Australia.
I struggled at first to set these up, but realized I was over thinking the effort. The setup is very straightforward, deceptively simple. Their small size may create the impression these are not strong brakes. Actually they are very powerful and work great in my build. Very pleased with them!
I have ridden a couple of mechanical disc brakes from different manufactures, but nothing compares to these brakes. Best modulation (even in steep terrain) and response for the rider. Fantastic product.
I have used the Avid BB7’s and the TRP Spyres. These are a class above and have seriously good stopping power on gravel and road. Stopping power as good as hydraulics on my road bike. My only install challenge was that calipers are sold in pairs. My bike had a flat mount fork mount and an IS/post mount in rear. VO would not sell separately, but I found an IS to flat mount adapter that worked well with Paragon sliders on rear wheel. Easy install and great performance.
