Cane Creek release fourth generation of eeBrakes, the G4

by CyclingTips

Just days after announcing the eewing mountain bike crankset, Cane Creek is back at it again, this time with an updated version of its Ultralight eeBrakes rim brake calipers, called the eeBrakes G4.

The G4, the brake’s fourth generation, features increased clearance for up to 28mm tyres, a revised centre adjuster for easier use and machined aluminium badges instead of the plastic badges in previous generation. The brake shoe and cable fastening bolts have been updated to T25 Torx, instead of the previous 4mm hex. And lastly, a stiffer spring is provided to overcome friction issues presented with some internally routed cables. Every part of the G4 is CNC machined aluminium, with exception to the titanium barrel adjuster.

Cane Creek state that the impressive 80g weight figure (regular mount, pads not included) remains the same, as does the braking performance on offer. The eeBrakes were originally created by Craig Edwards, who partnered with Cane Creek in October, 2016. The G4 is the first generation of the brake to be a collaboration between Edwards and Cane Creek.

The eeBrakes G4 will retail for US$325 per caliper and are available now.
