Grand Cru Long Reach Brakeset
The Grand Cru Long Reach (47-57mm) caliper brakes are super stiff, probably the stiffest long reach brakes ever made. In testing, we found these to outperform every other long reach brake and many short reach racing brakes that cost significantly more. The smooth, dual-pivot design offers superb modulation and power - very important on a steep mountain descent. There is even clearance for 45mm fenders!
These are made in a small shop in Taiwan run by a former bike racer and engineer. The brake's finish is anodized and highly polished, so they'll look great for years to come. The included brake shoes come with high quality pads and take standard Shimano-type replacements.
Gravel Bike did a review of the brakes here.
Wrench and a carbon fork mounting nut are included. 355gms per pair including shoes, pads, and nuts.
Sold as a set, front and rear. Available in Polished Silver and Noir.
Have installed your long reach brakes and am very impressed. They stop as well as the Avid bb7 discs on my Surly DT. Also love the cool, retro-industrial styling. I'm using them on my Guru Sidero. Thanks. By the way, I'm a big fan of VO's product offering. If only you carried larger frame sizes...(I understand; it's a business decision.)
