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.

Some of the best Brakes I have owned

Who knew mechanical brakes could have this much stopping power? I would put them up against hydraulic brakes any day. The modulation is good (not as good as hydraulic) but still pretty damn good. My only issue is the port to adjust brake distance is really small and not all Allen keys will fit inside to access the bolt. Outside of that, easy setup and great performance so far.

Buy these brakes

I have these setup with TRP RRL levers, Jagwire KEB-SL Compressionless Bicycle Brake Housing, Jagwire EZ-Bend Brake Housing Segments, and Jagwire Sport Slick Stainless brake cables (because it was already on the bike). They're amazing. Truly better power and modulation than I was expecting. Great feel and power from the hoods. I did install them with SwissStop RS pads because I'm bougie like that.

Blows TRP Spyres out of the water!

Seriously, these are monumental. I've never tried Klampers, so can't compare these to those, but they are well worth the upgrade over TRPs. I can now brake when I want to and how I want to without straining my hands or worrying about being underpowered.

I'm running them with Jagwire Link housing. I emailed them about this, and while they can't officially endorse any housing except for the Yokozuna Reaction stuff that they supply, they say any brake housing should be okay. And Link is the stiffest stuff in the business.

The gold color also adds a nice pop to my blacked-out rig.

Happy trails!


Solidly constructed. Works perfectly

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
