There are factors that affect the braking performance of a brake set. These factors include the material of the rim, composition, wet or dry conditions, rider weight and hand strength. This model is one of the lightest and best performing brakes at a price of $199.99. The lightweight forged aluminum alloy material of this brakeset makes it weigh 270 grams only. A single-pivot Bontrager Speed Limit brake performs better than most dual-pivot designs. These brakes are ideal for triathlon or road use.
This model is designed to offer less weight and more stopping power. Through an innovative deemed PowerAmp™ linkage design, Bontrager Speed Limit brakes have the leverage ratio of a dual-pivot brake. At the same time, it uses a single-pivot design to make it efficiently lightweight. Its wide cross-section arms provide maximum stiffness and power for an optimized and responsive brake feel. For an upgraded performance, Bontrager Speed Limit brakes are crafted with spring stiffness, arm stiffness, pivot assemblies, and pad compound.
