Say hello to Omega SL: our most refined brake ever. This is what happens when you take all the technology from 12 years of brake design, and whittle it down to the absolute bare minimum. Omega SL's skeletal design retains the robust mechanical formula of its big brother Omega One, but in a package that makes it the lightest production rim brake ever.
Because it's an Omega brake, the Omega SL has none of the headaches usually found on ultralight designs: no finicky cable routing, no specialized fasteners or assembly methods. The brake installs and functions just like every Omega ever made, with the same stopping power and ultra-smooth modulation.
Three sets of pad holders allow for stance width adjustment without the additional weight of Omega One's split-arm design. At just 81g for a complete brake (incl all hardware and Koolstop Salmon pads), it's the lightest production brake available anywhere. Exotic carbon brakes often show weights with pads, pad holders, and other hardware missing. Once all the hardware is actually on the scale, Omega SL takes the crown even against brakes costing a thousand dollars more.
