3DV PURPLE Paul Neo-Retro Cantilever Brake (NEW)
Radical limited edition 3D Violet anodized set of Paul Component Neo Retro canti brakes! This color matches perfect to retro 1990's ano components in 3DV purple. These were modeled after the revered vintage Mafac Tandem cantilever. CLICK HERE for matching Moon Unit cable carriers (which are not included here)
From the manufacturer
The arms of the Neo-Retro are machined from lightweight 6061 aluminum. Their T-shaped cross section prevents the brake from flexing too much under load.
The brake pads mount to slots in the arms that allow for vertical positioning. The toe-in and angle can be fine-tuned thanks to the spherical washers on the brake pad threaded posts.
The long arms give the Neo-Retro lots of mechanical advantage and supreme mud clearance. However, for smaller frames and those with panniers, we will often recommend our narrower Touring Canti brake.
Like all of our brakes, the Neo-Retro has a sealed pivot mechanism. Rubber seals and a stainless steel bushing keep the brake arms turning smoothly no matter what you’re riding through. The spring tension can be adjusted in both pivots to center the brake and to adjust the strength of the return swing.
The Neo-Retro stands out with its stopping power, high adjustability, low easy maintenance, and classic looks. The brakes come with their pivots pre-greased and with all necessary mounting hardware. (Moon Units sold separately)
