What brake levers can I use?

EQUAL mechanical disc brake calipers can be used with short-pull* brake levers that actuate the brake with a cable, just like rim brakes. Brake levers for hydraulic disc brakes cannot be used. *The term “short-pull” may be described as follows: For road bikes For cantilever brakes For caliper brakes For mini V-brake (Not compatible with V-brake levers.) Shimano, Campagnolo, SRAM, etc. have different lever ratios due to differences in design, but our brake calipers are designed for the median value of each company, so they can be used with any manufacturer. We have actually confirmed that our brake calipers can ...続きを読む


Can I use the brake-leverage adjustment bolt to adjust the brake pad clearance?

In principle, brake pad clearance adjustment should be made with the pad adjustment screw. If the brake-leverage adjustment bolt is used, the position of the outer pad will change, but so will the brake-leverage.Also, a large change may enter the Danger Zone, which is dangerous. Only if you are outside and do not have an Allen wrench, or if the brake pads have worn out significantly and it is dangerous not to adjust the brake pull allowance, etc., use the brake-leverage adjustment bolt to adjust the brake pads. Even in such a case, if you still enter the Danger Zone ...続きを読む


How to use 160mm diameter rotor on rear side?

If you want to change the rear rotor to 160mm diameter, you need to use an adapter made by another manufacturer. In the case of TRP adapters, they can be used as they are.In the case of Shimano adapters, the mounting screws are of special specifications. The pin part interferes with the caliper, so it needs to be cut. Please follow the installation instructions for the adapter.


What to do when the piston doesn’t return?

Before installing a disc brake caliper on a bike, the piston may not return when the swing arm is moved by hand. This occurs because the piston and shaft have become misaligned due to turning it all the way to the Danger Zone. If the piston does not return, push the swing arm fixing screw (check the dealer manual) to return the piston and shaft to the correct position. This will not occur when the product is installed and used on a bike.


What are compatible brake pads?

We recommend using EQUAL genuine brake pads. If you use other manufacturers’ products, Shimano road bike type brake pads (without fins) can be used. Pads with cooling fins cannot be used because the fins interfere with brake caliper body. Taking Shimano products as example, K04 (metal), K03 (resin), K05S-RX (successor to K03), etc. can be used. In this case, use the dedicated EQUAL brake pad fixing screws.
