There's something to be said for the clean looks of bare track handlebars, but riding brakeless can be hazardous on the road. The E-Lever is a tiny brake lever that keeps your handlebars looking clean while providing that extra braking power when needed.
We make the E-Lever available with our standard black or silver anodization, as well as with a high polish finish. Polished by hand to a mirror finish, it looks great on chromed drop bars or next to a polished quill stem.
The E-Lever is a short pull brake lever and works with standard side pull caliper brakes, as well as cantilevers and other short pull brakes. The lever blade of the E-Lever is short and scalloped to fit a single finger comfortably.
Because of its compact design the E-Lever has less leverage than our other brake levers. For this reason we cannot recommend it for use as the sole method of braking. The E-Lever should only be used in conjunction with other brake mechanisms such as a fixed gear hub or coaster brake. For a similar brake lever with greater leverage, take a look at our Cross Lever
We make this lever in two clamp diameters to fit road and mountain handlebars. The 23.8mm version fits on the narrower grip section of road hanlebars. The 22.2mm version fits standard mountain bike handlebars. There is an integrated barrel adjuster for quick adjustments.
