El Dorado – the legendary lost city of gold
El Dorado – the legendary lost city of gold. Explorers spent centuries trying to find it and never did. At Cane Creek we have another legend about a golden El Dorado. The story goes that Craig Edwards’ - inventor of the eeBrakes - father was in the music business and was gifted a gleaming gold Cadillac El Dorado as a thank you from soul legend Ike Turner. Years later, Craig’s dad passed that golden caddy down to his teenage son who drove it with style and pride.
And so in honor of explorers everywhere Cane Creek is producing a single limited run of El Dorado edition gold eeBrakes. In order to secure your brakes you must order before April 30th 2017.
The eeBrake is the ultimate brake from start to finish - a uniquely robust patented design developed and refined by relentless engineering, both at the computer and through real-life testing. At half the weight than that of its competitors, eeBrakes continue to set new standards by which all other high performance road brakes are judged. The same supreme upgrade for performance-oriented riders, a dramatically higher overall stiffness provides better modulation and more power. No detail has been overlooked, greater tire clearance and tool-less pad centering make installation simple.
PERFECT CABLE ALIGNMENT. The eeBrake cable adjuster pivots as the brake is applied, optimizing cable alignment during brake actuation. Also, the cable housing extends to lower tip of the cable adjustment screw eliminating added friction. That means, as the brake lever is squeezed, you get even and friction-free braking power.
AERODYNAMIC. Cross Cable Path aligns the brake cable over the center of the brake. This alignment provides a graceful, clean line and moves cables into the “wind shadow” of the frame, providing an aerodynamic advantage over traditional brakes with their cables and lever arms off to one side of the caliper.
EASY PRECISION. The tool-less adjustability provides super precision and pad motion consistency through the patented “Link” pad travel proportioning system. No annoying pad rub and constant need to re-center. No more re-adjusting the main fixing bolt after initial installation or using spring tensioning screws to align the brake pads.
QUICK & SIMPLE. One simple flip of the lever on the Quick Strut release opens wide enough to easily clear a 28mm tire allowing easy wheel removal. Change pads with ease using our patented system via Shimano style pads allowing for easy pad installation and removal without the use of tools.
El Dorado brakes will be custom built to order in a single limited run. We anticipate these brakes will ship June 2017.
