TRP Quadiem Four-Piston Disc Brakes & RevoX Carbon Cantilevers Unveiled
The TRP Quadiem is a new four-piston all-mountain disk brake. We spotted a prototype at DealerCamp and it felt pretty good in a quick parking lot test. Lever shape is nice and it has one of the best reach adjust knobs we’ve laid fingers on.
Weight is claimed at 434g per wheel (post mount, with 180mm rotor).
OEM placements will get a one-piece rotor, aftermarket kits will likely get this two piece rotor. Available in November in white or black, price TBD. Click on thru for more pics and the RevoX Carbon cantilevers…
We’re waiting on final spec from TRP to learn piston diameters.
Revo-X Carbon cyclocross cantilever brakes use flat sheets of carbon for the arms to come in at about 122g. That’s only about 10g lighter than the alloy ones, but they get ti hardware instead of stainless steel for even more bling factor.
Independent spring tension adjusters let you easily center the pads over the wheel.
They’ll be $279 for a set, available in white or fluorescent yellow.
