Making brakes that slow you down is easy. But making them light, powerful, efficient, adjustable and ergonomically perfect is Avid's specialty. And exactly what you get with Avid's Single Digit Ultimate Rim Brakes. The CNC construction and sealed cartridge bearings in the pivots make the Ultimates super smooth and durable season after season. And, with Avid's reversible noodle, you can use the Ultimate as a front or a rear brake, too.
