Tektro has a new carbon brake! That's one company that I would have least expected one to come from. Nothing yet on their website, anybody know anything?

it definitely bears a resemblance to the ax-lightness brakes eh. it does look very cool. hopefully, it is indeed all carbon, and not faux carbon, covering aluminum. if this sees production, it may even be affordable!

Nope, all that I know is what is on velonews.com. I was hoping somebody might have heard something.

The AX Lightness ones have been reworked. The front now looks like an early 80's Dura Ace EX caliper.
