Not everyone is a racer nor should every ride be a race. Cross bikes are the embodiment of cycling soul - able to venture over nearly all types of terrain swiftly and smoothly. The CX9`s linear pull design is compatible with most lever types and provides huge amounts of stopping power when the grades get steep or when your bike is loaded with enough gear to get you to the next continent. The super-low profile design also means panniers and racks do not interfere. Rely on CX9`s to stop you when you get there.
Mr de KlerkI like these brakes even though I haven't done a proper ride. I've done around the block ride after installing, nothing hectic but initial impressions are good. Works well with the Shimano Claris R2000 shifters. They are pricey, must admit. But here in South Africa nobody sells mini-v or cantilevers (Everything is disc related) so i had no choice but to order these for my intended build. So far no regrets, work well, look good and the clearance with 700x35c looks good. Looks like I can get wider tires in, I will explore that. Braking performance is seems good, I'm sure with some good pads it can be even better but standard ones work well for me now. Shipping of my entire order to South Africa was good, 6 days or so. Some local suppliers tend to take longer to deliver stuff. haha
MartinGreat braking power compared to canti brakes that I had.
Adam BarnesWow, these brakes are just something else! They look incredible, are easy to fit and maintain, and the stopping power is just tremendous...which is the most important thing really! Well worth the investment over something cheaper, as these are the best you'll get.
Mr SfameniBrakes are amazing in quality and performance. Price was unmatched and shipping was quick. Thanks Merlin Cycles.
Mr EtheringtonNot done many miles on these but top quality in manufacture and definitely an improvement on my old cantis, would definitely recommend
Mr PulfordFantastic upgrade for my cx bike from the standard shorty 4s. These were easy to fit with fantastic stopping power. They do require a bit more lever pull but they instill much more confidence when braking. They work well with the shimano ultegra shifters.
MarkoReplaced my cantilever brakes set for these V brakes. Have used them on two outings so far and ......... wow, such better stopping power and hence more confidence on bike. Bike is a Specialised Crux 2012.
Mr HolmThese cyclocross brakes are absolutely great. It's of high quality production and the are very easy to mount. They work quit outstanding at my first race - so I'm very happy :-)
BazzaBuilding the CX bike for road use & the common problem of canti performance was a real consideration. l took time to read a number of reviews about these CX9's before purchase and have to say they were accurate these brakes are every bit as powerful as you need without the fork chatter all this with Road STI levers. They are 'grabby' compared to some cantis but happy to live with this. For 'cross' use the rim block brake clearance would be less than ideal in soft conditions but this was not my primary concern. Great service from merlin getting these delivered overnight
