The new 7220 brake calipers offer a new patented design that will surely offer the demanding cyclist one of the best brake calipers on the market with incredibly low weight.
New Cam-Pivot design increases as the travel rate diminishes, providing braking without compromising caliper arm travel. Thus providing excellent brake modulation throughout the braking process, something standard calipers cannot provide. Compatible with all current road brake lever systems and cables.
Tips on fitting the calipers:
Mount the brake as centrally as possible using the main frame securing allen bolt.
The small allen key screw located in the central barrel which secures down on to the central pivot bolt is to assist in centring the caliper arms once the main securing bolt has been tightened.
There's also a small allen key grub screw On-One of the caliper arms which tightens on to the main spring. Once the caliper has been centred using the main mounting bolt, the small allen grub screw can be used to 'fine-tune' the adjustment. By tightening it up, the tension on the spring will be increased and that caliper arm will move away from the rim. Loosen it off and the tension is released and the caliper arm will move towards the rim. It's very clever and kept some of us amused for hours.
All the parts were supplied, appropriately packaged and protected, with clear fitting instructions and, to my surprise, the tools were included! Fitting was easy, and everything worked correctly, first time.
Nice Planet X light brakes - but there is no instruction on how to install.
Super kit, add in the price and it makes an unbeatable offer.
Probably spent more time than is healthy simply looking at these work-of-art brakes. Stunning in red and easy to fit and adjust.
My objective was to create a sub 14lb road bike by purchasing lighter items without compromising quality. I replaced my Dura Ace 9000 brakes with these and although early days, the brake provides excellent braking in both wet and dry conditions. Will be interesting to see if they are bullet proof over Time.
Just love England great place and bikes!!!!
A bit expensive though.
Look great can not wait to use them
The service and quality of product is first rate.
Price was incorrectly advertised
Bit fiddly to fit as had to remove end caps from cable outers. Adjusters are different from standard type brakes but seem good quality & very light which makes up for the above.
double, double excellent very pleased would buy again
Very good i am very pleased with them would not hesitate to recommend to friends
Luggage has arrived properly. Thank you.
Excellent, light, powerful and amazing value
Great value for money
Very happy with the brake calipers. However it does not come with instructions as you would expect from any product from the market. This is a must when the buyer is someone with limited knowledge of proper set-up. The PX support team were very responsive with my support request, but I lost patience with multiple email conversation with the them and ended up paying my LBS as I was loosing practice time. The forums in google and suggested video on youtube showing ultegra brake set-up is not very helpful. What is stopping the manufacturer from recording a video demonstrating step by step set-up and fine adjustment of this specific brake system?
I've just upgraded from the forged px version. Really pleased I did- whilst the forged calipers are really powerful for their price, these feel smoother, more capable and of a different class. As usual, 10/10 for px in bang for buck.. keep it up folks!
Good stopping power (as good as ultegra) lightweight and fairly easy to set up. Great value for money, Planet X.
Calipers are beautifully made, impeccably anodized, and outperform even the best Dura Ace calipers in terms of braking performance and modulation. They are reasonably straightforward to install and adjust, and they are incredibly lightweight. You would have to spend upwards of $500 to get a caliper this light, and there's no way you'd get this level of braking performance.
My second pair!! work great. very light weight!!
They look fantastic. Fit well. Very light. Not tested yet.
Great product, just as described and I'm very happy with it so far. Exceeded my expectations.
The color is totally difference to the picture. Fortunately, my friend bought it for me but I need to order again.
So far ok
Light, beautiful na excellent braking, at least those I bought that cames with dark blue brake pads.
I am very pleased.
