Come in different colors


Design. Needs to have a hole in front of lever to access brake fixing bolt, because 1. you shouldn't be using a ball end to tighten an aluminum bolt that tight and the lever hits the bar preventing you from using the square end and 2. you can't get an accurate torque reading at an angle. But more importantly, aluminum bolt into plastic with 8Nm torque? come on.

Plastic body with Aluminum fixing bolt and a tightening spec of 8Nm. I found the plastic shims that expand to grip the inside of the bar are too slippery, requiring tightening above 5Nm. After using sandpaper to roughen the inside of the bar and friction paste, tightening the fixing bolt enough to stop from slipping led to the bolt treads slipping in the plastic. Could not use torque wrench because of the need to use ball end of hex key. Entry to bolt is not a straight shot. Estimated torque at point of slipping is between 5 and 6 Nm. Poor design, plastic threads are part of the lever body and thus not replaceable. Plastic threads on anything with a torque expectation that high is a bad idea. Working bike mechanic 7 yrs.
