It doesn't get much better than the R1 Racing. Lightweight, plenty powerful and great modulation. Suitable for all bikes from XC to AM and with a large range of pad compounds makes getting the right feel of your brake no matter what your riding style or terrain is. The R1R is a stripped down version of the R1, that means it has a tooled reach adjust dial, carbon lever and a new hose material to bring the weight down considerably.
Calipers are forged one-piece so there is no hint of flex and with the combination of the new braided hose line relays to a firm feeling at the lever. Reach adjustment is via a hex wrench (This is a weight weenie brake, look at the R1 if you need the tool-free RA). The R1 Racing still features all the same internals and piston design as the base model R1, so that means you get loads of power and excellent modulation from the lightest production brakeset currently available.
Finished in a high gloss polished silver, stunning looks that just oozes with fine Italian design.
All brakesets come with hose joining kit and mounting hardware.
