  • Motolite

    For those people still running v/linear/direct pull brakes, we offer the Motolite. This brake has proven itself to be the best of this genre time and time again: it’s high-powered, has excellent modulation and is easy to adjust/maintain.

    All Motolite’s have the capability of running a larger size wheel. In other words, the arms allow the pads to travel way up the arm so you could say, run a 650b or 700c wheel on a bike designed for 26”wheels.

    This brake is 100% machined in-house, from 6061 Aluminum. Like all our brakes, these feature our over-sized sealed pivot sleeves machined to a tolerance of plus or minus one thousandths of an inch. And of course our independently adjustable square wire springs keep everything snappy and balanced.

    The quick release mechanism is super simple and always reliable. Why doesn’t everybody do it like this?

    Yes, disc brakes are taking over. We’re fine with that (ahem, Klampers), but if you want to keep things simple, avoid that inevitable disc noise, or have a classic Ritchey that’s been hanging in the garage since the early 90’s needing a makeover: these are the brakes for you.

    Please note that all of our brakes are sold per wheel.
