The Avid Shorty Ultimate is a top-end cantilever brake made to please the discerning cyclocross rider seeking premium brake performance. An in-line cable adjuster makes it super easy to dial-in brake adjustment even when you are on the starting line.
The Shorty Ultimate has an easily adjustable spring tension to achieve perfect lever feel. The pad height and angle are also easily adjusted and the Ultimates use standard Shimano/Sram cartridge road brake pads for a wide choice of aftermarket options. Contrasting black and red anodized details give excellent looks as well as performance.
