When good brakes aren't good enough.

The Shorty Ultimate is available in a pre-set wide or narrow stance which allows for greater power (narrow) or increased mud clearance (wide). The Avid Shorty Ultimate is equipped with an in-line cable adjuster and a quick realease. It comes with standard road cartridge pads.
Note: These brakes can only be used with road bike brake levers!
It is recommended as a rear brake, but is also suitable for increased braking force on the front axle.
