Can anyone confirm they work for wide rims, like Zipp and Hed? Thanks.

I received a set last night. They're not actually dual pivot. Both caliper arms pivot around a single bolt, versus having a second pivot bolt for one of the arms. The cam arm changes the leverage as the calipers close.

On my scale, one brake w/pads and hardware weighs 105g, versus 135g for a 2011 SRAM Red w/pads and hardware.

I have run them with Archetypes and XC279s without issue. Can't speak for wider rims than that though...however, I felt like there would have been room.

Not to start a whole new thread with a related topic, but I'll be receiving these brakes this week.

Any tips or suggestions for the install, if they are much different than the SRAM brakes I'll be replacing?

Thanks.
