KCNC's site is so underwhelming.
Boo, on referrig to these ugly brakes as Delta. There is only one Delta brake, it was from Campy and it was a work of art.
(Yea, I bet the KCNC work better though.)

I have a set of these. They are not C6 brakes, they are CB4 (not as in Cell Block 4) The front caliper is 76.1 grams and the rear is 75.3 grams. This weight is without brake pads or holders.

I can't say yet how the perform as I still haven't been able to mount and ride them as I've been testing a different prototype brake. I will say when I saw the picture of these before I got a set I thought it was easily the worst looking brake ever. Once I got them I have to say they aren't nearly as bad as in pictures. We will hopefully this year be doing a new brake review with some new equipment and plan on including this brake in the test.

Yes, lucky me. It should be available in 2014.

Also on the upside, some new testing equipment for brakes is designed and will hopefully be built before too much longer.

These would go great with the spiderweb chainrings and Delta 7 frame. Bonus points If you ride in a Spiderman suit. :lol:

They're likely for aerodynamics.

So glad to hear there will be a new brake review! Please include the Engage offering in that, also maybe the TriRig aero brake?

With some carbon cover it'd be great aero brake. Other than they are so ugly to some degree they are work of art.

Hi wojchiech, yes they probably would go with the Delta 7 frame and Spiderman lyrca :D
Hopefully they work well, because the new 9000 brakes do work extremely well although they are a little heavier :)
