Shimano has responded to the growing popularity of cyclocross by producing the BR-CX70 cantilever brake. So now you can get Shimano build quality, adjustability and performance in a quality cyclocross cantilever.
The CX70 features road-style replaceable cartridge pad so it is easy to change pads as conditions dictate or for carbon wheels. Each arm has adjustable spring tension making it easy to center the pads and dial in lever feel. Concentric washers make pad angle adjustment a snap. The low-profile design keeps the arms out of the way so you won't hit your leg during dismounts and Shimano has engineered plenty of mud clearance. Select front or rear.
