Shielding Seat Stays

Hiding the rear brake from the wind, not from the mechanic. Properly formed seat stays hide the brake and improve air flow over the calliper.

Speed Engineered

Hiding a brake calliper from the wind is an effective way to make you faster.

There are basically two locations for a rear brake: seat stays or chain stays. The chain stay location obviously works well aerodynamically, but can be a challenge to service unless you have a reliable, low-maintenance hydraulic brake. In contrast, it’s easier to simply shape the seat stays to hide the brake from the wind.

The benefit: Hidden from the wind, not from the mechanic. Faster and easier.
