Familiarity breeds confidence (not a bad thing to have when you're out riding solo in the wilderness). Avid Single Digit brakes are the choice of riders who seek supreme performance in a simple design.
Lightweight, powerful, intuitive, simple.
Sooner or later you face the inexorable truth that what comes down must first go up.
Hey, nothing wrong with exploiting any advantage you can get.
Single Digit Ultimate
The ultimate rim brake
This sleek CNC rim brake pivots on sealed cartridge bearings so you’ll get a smooth, effortless stop. In fact, its stopping power will amaze even disc brake devotees. It also has a lefty/righty reversible noodle which allows you to route the cable from, you guessed it, the left or right lever. Beautifully sculpted from solid aluminum billet, it’s very lightweight just as you'd expect from Avid.
