Product Description

Avid has perfected the cyclocross brake with the new Shorty Ultimate Shorty Cantilevers. This 2011 design is available in two preset configurations allowing riders to choose between wide or narrow stance. The narrow stance provides greater stopping power and won't catch legs during dismountsremounts it also doesn't interfere with rear racks on your touring bike while the wide stance offers the massive mud clearance needed for the most demanding 'cross conditions. Most riders prefer the wide stance version up front and the narrow stance in the rear 230g.
