The stock brakes on the Kilo WT are the Tektro R556.

Edit - It looks like the Tektro R556 have been superseded by the R559, so the previous post is correct. My 10 year old Kilo WT came with the R556 calipers, but the bikesdirect website now shows them to be the R559. Anyway, any caliper with a 55mm to 73mm reach should work.
