Good price/performance ratio. These calipers are definitely rated up with some of the more expensive calipers available. At 168grams per set, these are not the lightest brakes on the market, but definitely not the heaviest. The emphasis on the C-Brake was to create a stiff and high performing caliper giving away to just a bit more weight. Far and Near have made an excellent trade-off in weight for huge amounts of raw stopping power and increased modulation. The dual bearing pivot design provides smooth lever action regardless of the conditions and also adds to the stiff feel of the brake under heavy braking, a very minimal quick release system allows easy extraction of your wheels and there is no levers to get in the way. The return spring is stainless steel and provides a very positive feel at the levers, combined with the smooth dual pivot bearings allows for consistent feel even when the brakes are dirty. The simple design allows for easy setup and with minimal maintenance once they are installed, we have seen some aftermarket calipers can be very tricky to get the setup just right to realise their potential.
Top tier OEM calipers have dramatically improved their performance over the last few years, providing amazing stopping power and modulation, the Far and Near C-Brake definitely is a step-up from OEM and most of the aftermarket calipers available. Less weight, more power and modulation and high quality construction.
Overall the calipers have a very clean look with the 100% CNC'd design and with a choice of colours allows easy matching to your frameset.
Available in anodized Red, Gold, Silver and Black.
