New KCNC V-Brakes and Levers...

KCNC in Taiwan is now gunning for Extralite's UltraBrakes and UltraLever with their new brakes and levers.

Weights and pricing have yet to be confirmed but this is what we know:

The brake weight 58grams with Ti springs for each end without brake pads The Levers weight 42grams. MSRP is set at around $440, for both brakes and levers.

If the brake work as well as the Extralite ones we have a winner on pricing. But the levers might not be very stiff at that weight. We will have to wait and see. Other brakes levers have been made lighter, byt frankly they sucked and were wet noodles!
