Recreational Cyclocross and Gravelbiking This has to be the most physically intense sport ever invented. It's high speed bicycle racing on a short off road course or riding the off pavement rides on gravel like :The Dirty Kanza". We also have a dedicated Racing forum for the Cyclocross Hard Core Racers.

New VO Canti Brakeset

Looks like Velo-Orange has a new set of cantis that look the same as Giant's prototype team only brake. Looks like it's really powerful and adjustable but a little pricey. Interesting...

VO Brake



Giant's

The cable angle in the top picture doesn't look too powerful. To get these really clamping you'd pretty much have to have the straddle cable on the tire.

They look light though.

Might want to check out this link.
This appears to be actual manufactuer of that brake.
looks like its model: CANTI-76L0A
some of the other designs look familiar too... Origin-8-ProForce is on there...

Its a pretty cool concept they have there; looks like basically all their cantilever and v-brakes use the same hardware, just with a different cnc-machined body plate to achieve different configurations.
kinda reminds me of LEGO bricks

Personally, I hope someone commmisions them to mass produce CANTI -67L0A that one looks like it can put out some really high mechanical advantage with great tire clearance at the same time....

tho i guess if you skoot the pads way out on the VO one you can achieve similar effect....

i expect the setup is like V brakes ... MA needs them to be real close to rim,
rim has to be kept in true.

VO has a lot of stuff that they just order the polished version,
rather than the anodized and colored or painted one.

Taiwan manufacturing is a rapid reply when production is needed.
Giant was already making Many other brands, they just added their own name
to their contract manufacturing business .

Order a batch of enough units, and they will put Your Name on It.

Seems like a great brake, since it would allow you to have a fender and still get a straddle cable near horizontal. In that configuration, you're cantis would pretty much be v-brakes. And they are spendy, but the price is for two brakes plus all the hardware. I need to replace my stock brakes, and I may actually order these if I can't find anything close locally.

I have a fork-mounted straddle hanger, so I may _need_ to have the straddle cable horizontal for these to work at all. That's fine with me though!

According to Wikipedia it's "bright vermilion" (though you could change it to say 'orange'). A few other tidbits from Wikipedia:

The "Royal Standard"

It looks to me, like the arms are actually long enough that you could convert them into V-brakes or mini-Vs
Consider:
remove the straddle wire
insert a J-noodle into the barrel adjuster on one arm, cable pinch on other side functions as usual
actually makes me want them now, just to experiment with....

The cable would barely clear those road tires, much less a cross tire. You'd have tons of leverage, very little pad clearance.
