Hi all,

Just trying to understand KCNC caliper brakes line up.

There are the CB3 and CB4 which I believe are the same except for materials/weight

Then there are CB9 and CB10 which again i believe they are the same but different materials, hence weight. Weight wise they are quite similar to the CB3 and CB4, so what the differences?

There are also CB11 and 12 but these are direct mount, so i dont think they will suit me.

I googled some forum discussions, i think ones are dual pivot, the other sets are single?

in the catalog, it seem to suggest CB9/10 are designed for bigger tyre clearance and higher tolerance to dirt and mud?

Some say pour 10ml water out of your bottle to save that last bit of the weight. Sorry, i go one step further, i tend to the rider off my bikes. :thumbup:
