Things I get excited about–TriRig Omega Brakes

Are these things sexy or what??

Reminds me of the old Campy Delta Brakes but I bet these ones actually work!

I’m a bit dubious that a brake will have a big aero advantage, especially the rear brake but I have to admin that just having a bike that looks fast can give you an advantage. As I upgrade my Cervelo P2 into a better speed weapon for 2013 I am on the lookout for cool stuff.

I saw these on a photo gallery of the Paris-Nice prologue and they looked sweet so jumped on the internet to get more info, and there is plenty of it. These guys are certainly proud of their brakes and there is a lot of info on an omega specific blog here. You can buy these today at  http://www.tririg.com/store.php?c=omega

They seem to poke out a bit but they install like any other brake, although looks like the torque tolerances are quite high.

 The custom rear spring sits perfectly within the Omega's profile, has plenty of force, and will work well even with tight cable runs.

Once on the bike they do look very well integrated.

At $180 a pop they seem pricey but reasonable for a slick looking brake but will depend on how they work.

A few reviews are out.

“I can report that I have raced with this brake many times now and have had zero problems with it. Stopping power was on par with the standard caliper and I’ve never had any issues with keep it straight and avoiding brake rub during a ride. In short – it’s been brilliant.”

BikeRadar has a review as well. Looks like they didn’t do a lot of testing but they did weigh it!

“One thing we can say is that it’s very light, at 122g on our scales including bolts and Kool Stop Salmon brake pads.”

Damn, something else to lust after….
