The Canti Lever is a short pull brake lever for use with short pull brakes like cantilevers, center pull brakes, and side pull caliper brakes.
FinishAnodized or Polished
Anodized ColorBlack, Purple or Silver
What is Cable Pull?Short Pull ↓
Short pull brake levers have less leverage than long pull brake levers and pull a shorter amount of cable as they are actuated.
They are intended only for use with short pull brakes, such as side pull caliper brakes, cantilever brakes, centerpull brakes and mini-v brakes.
Clamp Size22.2mm ↓
22.2mm is equivalent to 7/8 inches, and is the diameter of most mountain bike handlebars. Many flat bars, risers and city bars have this diameter. It is measured at the end of the bar where grips and brake levers attach.
We recommend these for use with our Racer, Neo-Retro, Touring Canti, Mini-Moto or Short Pull Klamper brakes, but they work well paired with any road caliper brake, cantilever brake, or other short pull brake. For a long pull brake lever, see our Love Lever Compact or Love Lever 2.5.
These levers are machined by us here in Chico California to exacting specifications. The pivot features a dual sealed cartridge bearing for the smoothest, stiffest brake lever you will ever use. Like all our components, these will be serviceable for a lifetime.
A 5mm set screw in the side of the lever perch allows you to adjust the reach, setting the distance from the bar to the lever to fit your hands.
Barrel adjusters are included for fine-tuning your brakes, and their oversized design and smooth shape makes it easy to adjust them by hand, even wearing thick gloves.
