For Heaney-esque days.
Regardless of whether on a soggy gravel road or a muck-riddled 'cross course that's more reminiscent of Heaney poem than a sporting competition, TRP's Spyre SLC Mechanical Disc Brake Caliper has proven its merit. The bite is positive and the modulation is generous, giving you just the amount of speed-scrubbing control you need to ensure you don't overcook a corner and end up in the brush.
Compared to the standard Spyre, the Spyre SLC's incorporation of a carbon actuation lever trims a bit of weight and actually makes for more responsive braking. The Spyre SLC's even braking is no doubt helped by its dual-side actuation, which lets both pads squeeze instead of leaving one fixed. Less pad wear, less rotor wear, less potential for warping—the benefits of dual-sided actuation are legion.
- Mechanical disc brakes for most drop bar levers
- Carbon actuation arm sheds grams and boosts stopping
- Dual-sided actuation reduces wear on pads and rotors
- Barrel adjuster allows for tool-free, road-side tuning
- To eliminate sponginess, we recommend compression-free housing
- Mounting hardware not included, fork mount requires FF-5 Front Flat Mount
- Item #TRP000I

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Maybe a minute more difficult to set up than the Avid Mechanical BB5 or BB7. Works on my road bike, where I average 5000+ feet of climb and descend per week. Go through about an average of one set of pads a year, and these slow and stop me in just the way they are supposed to. At 180 pounds on carbon wheels, these keep me safe.
will the trp caliper work with campy chorus levers?
