The Touring Canti is a powerful cantilever brake with a similar design to the Neo-Retro, but with the arms angled upward. This gives the brake a much narrower profile without significantly reducing stopping power.

The Paul Components Touring Cantilever Brake is designed to work with road or non-linear pull mountain levers.

  • Compatible with drop bar levers and short pull mountain bike levers
  • Sealed pivot system with adjustable spring tension and Kool Stop pads
  • The arms of the Touring Canti are machined from lightweight 6061 aluminum
  • A T-shaped cross section prevents the brake from flexing too much under load
  • Brake pads mount to slots in the arms that allow for vertical positioning
  • The toe-in and angle can be fine-tuned thanks to the spherical washers on the brake pads’ threaded posts
  • The sealed pivot mechanism, rubber seals, and a stainless steel bushing keep the brake arms turning smoothly no matter what you're riding through
  • Spring tension can be adjusted in both pivots to center the brake and to adjust the strength of the return swing
  • Includes straddle cable and hanger, crossover cable and carrier
  • Works well as a rear brake where the Neo-Retro brakes may cause heel clearance problems
  • Recommended for standard pull (not linear pull) brake levers
  • Made in USA

Touring Cantilever Installation Guide
Brake springs are directional. View the Spring Placement Diagram.

The narrower profile of the Touring Canti is desirable if you’re riding with large panniers or if your current brakes don’t give you enough heel or calf clearance.

The arms of the Touring Canti are machined from lightweight 6061 aluminum. Their T-shaped cross section prevents the brake from flexing too much under load.

The brake pads mount to slots in the arms that allow for vertical positioning. The toe-in and angle can be fine-tuned thanks to the spherical washers on the brake pads’ threaded posts.

Like all of our brakes, the Touring Canti has a sealed pivot mechanism. Rubber seals and a stainless steel bushing keep the brake arms turning smoothly no matter what you’re riding through. The spring tension can be adjusted in both pivots to center the brake and to adjust the strength of the return swing.

The Touring Canti comes with pivots pre-greased and with all necessary hardware.

We recommend running the Touring Canti with a lower straddle wire to maximize stopping power. Having the cable carrier between 1″ inches and 2″ above the tire is a good range.
