Paul Components Racer Brake is a center pull caliper brake with long reach arms and plenty of clearance.

Based on the classic Mafac center pull, the Racer brake has been updated with modern materials and manufacturing. The long reaching arms are CNC machined with a T-shaped profile that makes them very stiff. The widely spaced pivots make room for larger tires and full-coverage fenders.

The Racer was originally designed to mount directly to the frame via center pull brake bosses. When a Braze-On Racer is mounted to these specially positioned center pull brake bosses, the brake is especially stiff, weighs less and has a simple integrated appearance.

It is important to note that the Braze-On Racer does not mount to brake bosses in the standard cantilever position, and it will not work with U-brake bosses. Please refer to our support article on Braze-On Center Pull Brakes for more information. Reach is determined by the height of the center pull brake bosses, which can be positioned by a frame builder to match up with 700c, 650b, or 26″ wheels.
