New Magnetic Front PlateThe new Omega X improves further on its industry-leading aerodynamics by eliminating two bolts, and also makes for much easier installation and maintenance. Access to the brake's internals is a snap, literally!
New Wedge/Lever geometry...improves braking performance and eases installation. The wedge returns the levers to center more easily, and the new "home" position on the Wedge makes for an initial bite that takes up more cable, meaning less travel for initial pad contact, and allowing for wider pad stance widths without a loss in power. Improved lever strength and a higher cable pull ratio also contribute to increased braking performance.
Direct Mount AdapterThanks to our universal adapter, the Omega X is the first brake with compatibility for Shimano Direct Mount, TRP U-Mount, AND traditional single-bolt mounts. That's right, the Omega X completely replaces both the Omega Standard and Omega SV, and adds extra compatibility with the new suite of tri bikes built around the Shimano standard.
Easier InstallationAll operations with the new Omega X are significantly easier and more foolproof on all bikes, including bolt-on brake mounts like those found on Cervelo aero bikes. Fewer bolts, fewer operations, and fewer chances for user-error mean that all athletes can enjoy the full performance benefits of a properly-installed Omega X.
And of course, Omega X keeps everything that made the original version so great. Read about the brake's features in depth, right here » All Features
