FSA K-Force Hydraulic Disc Brakes Spotted!
FSA has a broad line of road bike rim brake calipers and cantilevers for ‘cross, but this is their first move into hydraulics and mountain bike offerings. Given the range of cockpit and crankset parts, it could be a move to bolster their OEM placements, but perhaps they’re hiding some sick new tech in there that would make for compelling aftermarket consideration. Although these aren’t on the list of new products they’ll show at Sea Otter, we’ll see what we can find out. More pics below.
Thanks to Langdon for the tip!
Looks to have a pretty decently sized master cylinder with easily accessible bleed port…though it does look like it may sit a bit below where any air bubbles would gravitate.
Clever placement of the reach adjust knob appears to let it fit directly next to Grip Shift shifters, something even Avid’s tool-free reach adjust won’t do.
The calipers look to have large diameter pistons.
