Cane Creek SCR-5 Brake Levers

5/5 (2 Reviews)
MSRP : $35.00

Product Description

The SCR-5 levers are lightweight, high performance aero levers designed to be used for special application bicycles—like climbing specific racing bikes where light weight is the goal—and for updating brake levers on classic road bikes. The ergonomically designed lever hood—with raised Cane Creek skinks and logos—is soft and tacky, and conforms to the shape of the hand, yielding increased grip, greater comfort and reduced fatigue. Cold-forged 6061 aluminum alloy levers, high impact resinbracket, exclusive compound rubber lever hood.

Strengths:    Good solid feel, mush like a ultegra. Smooth action and a retention pin that allows for cable release.

Weaknesses:    Non yet

Bottom Line:   
Very comfortable, good quality and nice shape for larger hands. Older bike setup with bar end shifters.

I've read these are re-badged Tektro's but I haven't seen a Tektro model that is similar or works as smooth.

Strengths:    Easy aero-feed for cables, wide hand-width for weight-bearing, grippy covers, wiggly outside contour on outside edges of levers to fit fingers.

Weaknesses:    Only black covers were available from my sources -- I like gum-colored ones.

Bottom Line:   
For those looking for a brake-only (shifters located elsewhere) lever, these aero units stop my Campy sidepulls well, have good return action, and -- most notably -- feel absolutely wonderful in an adult-sized hand, with their chunky bodies. Grab with confidence and comfort!
