The Racer brake is a center pull caliper brake with medium reach arms and plenty of clearance.
Front wheel version with long non-recressed center-bolt and for short-pull road brake levers.
Based on the classic Mafac center pull, the Racer brake has been updated with modern materials and manufacturing. The long reaching arms are CNC machined with a T-shaped profile that makes them very stiff. The widely spaced pivots make room for larger tires and full-coverage fenders.
This Racer version is designed to mount directly to the frame via center pull brake bosses. Contrary to the Braze-On version an additional bridge spans the pivots and mounts to the frame with a bolt. The option is given for a shorter recessed bolt to work with modern frames, or a longer non-recessed bolt that works with older frames.
The Center Mount Racer is a long reach brake, and has 47 mm to 57 mm of reach (when measured diagonally from the center mount to the top of the brake pad).
