TRP R979 EQ Magnesium rim brakes
black / white
Dual caliper supremacy reaches a new (Shimano 7900) audience wiht our R979EQ. Offering the same race proven performance as the original R970EQ, yet fully compatible with Shimano 7900 (6700 Ultegra) series levers thanks to longer caliper arms and increased leverage ratio,the R979EQ raises the bar yet again.
Forged CNC machined magnesium arms rotating on dual pivots, feathery titanium hardware, a familiar cam style quick release in addition to our innovative sliding quick release and mechanic-pleasing Inplace pad holders are the perfect chassis for the grippy TRP brake pads.
These feathery light brakes come with two sets of brake pads for carbon or aluminum rims so you can ride, train and race with confidence.
The 979 model offers the additional flexability of choosing your quick release style. TRP's first generation "sliding quick release" offers a unique option that saves those few crucial grams that define an SL (super-light) brake. The EQ version satisfies those looking for a more traditional quick release, especially when used with ultra-light race wheels that tend to flex under load.
