The E-Lever is a small single-finger, short-pull brake lever. It works with standard side-pull caliper, cantilever, and other short-pull brakes.
There’s something to be said for the clean looks of bare track handlebars, but riding brakeless can be hazardous on the road. The E-Lever is a tiny brake lever that keeps your handlebars looking clean while providing that extra braking power when needed.
The E-Lever is available in either black or silver anodized, as well as polished. The polished version has a mirror finish and looks especially great on chromed drop bars or next to a polished quill stem.
Because of its compact design, the E-Lever has less leverage than our other brake levers. For this reason we cannot recommend it for use as the sole method of braking. The E-Lever should only be used in conjunction with other brake mechanisms such as a fixed gear hub or coaster brake. For a similar brake lever with greater leverage, take a look at our Cross Lever.
We make this lever in two clamp diameters to fit road and mountain handlebars. The 23.8mm version fits on the narrower grip section of road handlebars. The 22.2mm version fits standard mountain bike handlebars. There is an integrated barrel adjuster for quick adjustments. Technical Information
- Material: 6061 Aluminum
- Weight: 56g
- Finish: Anodized
- Anodized Color: Black or Silver
- Cable Pull: Short Pull
- Clamp Size: 22.2mm or 23.8mm
22.2mm is equivalent to 7/8 inches, and is the diameter of most mountain bike handlebars. Many flat bars, risers and city bars have this diameter. It is measured at the end of the bar where grips and brake levers attach.
23.8mm is the diameter of most road handlebars. Drop bars, bull horns, and other handlebars designed for road bike will often have this diameter. It is measured in the "grip" area of the bar, not the larger diameter area where the stem attaches.
