Sea Otter Classic 2011 – TRP Parabox Disc Brake System

Feature Articles Sea Otter Classic

TRP showed off a new hydraulic disc brake system that will allow any virtually any current shifter, including TRP’s own RRL line of levers to actuate a hydraulic disc brake system. The system mounts a master cylinder to a bike’s steerer tube that takes the brake cable pulls of the levers and translates it into hydraulic braking power. The paradox has two small levers, that pulled by the left and right levers, pushes a plunger in the master cylinder to actuate the disc brakes.

Parabox will come complete with rotors, calipers, and pre-bled hydraulic brake lines and the steerer tube mounted master cylinder. The whole system is said to weigh roughly 450 grams and will retail for just shy of $500. They should be available before this year’s cross season starts.
