Rated 5 out of 5 by Dave44300 Really great brakes
Like the other person who commented from Norway (thanks for the info) I set these brakes up on a Focus Mares cross bike - I agree with what he said and likewise am really please with their performance. Pricey but you get what you pay for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Exellent brakes for CX
Got the Focus Mares CX 2.0 last year with cheap brakes. Changed to these ones being a new world in braking power. Took time to set the whole thing up, but when done, i.e adjusted the spring and tuned the cross wire length they work perfect. The adjustment screw is just brilliant avoiding tightning the wire upon wear of the pad. The adjustment screw also works as an opener for the break in case of a tyre change or de-mudding the inside of the break.
