Paul Components MotoLite Linear Pull Brake

The Paul Components Motolite has proven itself to be the best of this genre time and time again: it’s high-powered, has excellent modulation, and is easy to adjust/maintain.

All Motolite’s have the capability of running a larger size wheel. In other words, the arms allow the pads to travel way up the arm so you could say, run a 650b or 700c wheel on a bike designed for 26”wheels.

This brake is 100% machined in-house, from 6061 Aluminum. Like all Paul brakes, these feature their over-sized sealed pivot sleeves machined to a tolerance of plus or minus one thousandths of an inch. And of course our independently adjustable square wire springs keep everything snappy and balanced.

The quick release mechanism is super simple and always reliable. 

If you want to keep things simple, avoid that inevitable disc noise, or have a classic Ritchey that’s been hanging in the garage since the early 90’s needing a makeover: these are the brakes for you!
