The brakes in the pic are alloy, lightweight sidepulls better suited to roadbikes where weight is more the concern. They work well but I'd not want a set on my MTB (if I had one).

My 3 bikes are classic/vintage roadbikes (some are racers) and they all have alloy sidepull brakesets. They stop me very well.
