Road Bike Brakes
Road Bike Brake Calipers Road bike brake calipers are available in several variations; single and dual pivot for standard road bikes; cantilever for cyclo cross and touring; direct mount for triathlon, time trial and aero road bikes; and discs for cross, touring and now road. Frame, brake lever type and brand will also dictate which type of caliper you can use. Merlin Cycles stock a wide range of road bike brake calipers from brands including Tektro, TRP, SRAM, Shimano and Campagnolo.
Road Bike Brake Pads Road bike brake pads are available in many different styles and materials for each specific type of brake caliper. Standard pads are either one piece or a replaceable cartridge while cantilever pads have a longer arm. Pads are carbon or alloy specific and must only be used on the corresponding rim type to ensure safe braking and avoid damage.
