New Avid Ultimate CX cantis
While attending QBP's annual Frostbike open house this past weekend, i stumbled across these two examples of the Avid's new CX canti's. They are both the new Shorty Ultimates, just in wide version and low profile for the rear use. They both look and felt quite good. i like the fact that they use V/brake style hardware instead of post style pads, and they seem to have good mud clearance with a lot of lever travel. The brake fixing hardware was very reminiscent of the old Avid TriAlign II series which was super nice. anyhow, thought some of you might be interested in this as it signals Avids return to a higher end CX cantilever as really the shorty series was not that.
