The TRP T930 Brakes Combine Elegance with Performance
If you are familiar with TRP, then you know that TRP is your one stop shop for all of your aftermarket brake needs for cycling. If you would like direct mount disc brakes or a dual pivot brakes for your bike, then TRP will have you covered with state of the art brakes for your bike.
The SoCalCycling.com Team had several Team riders that rode the Fuji Transonic aero road bike this season. The Team Fuji Transonic bike was equipped with the TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes. Most aero road bikes have been implementing the direct mount disc brakes as the go to braking system. If you have been using the standard dual pivot braking system and you haven’t tried the direct mount system, it is a truly remarkable system. The direct mount braking system is a very stable and more solid than most standard dual pivot brakes.
A benefit to using TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes is that you don’t have to grab the brake levers quite as hard with the direct mount braking system as you do with a standard dual pivot brake system. The TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes are crisp and responsive and you will not get any brake chatter, since they are directly mounted to the frame (or at least when used on the Fuji Transonic frame).
The weight of the TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes are very minimal for added stopping power compared to a standard dual pivot brake. The TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes brake pad holders are also CNC machined and fitted with TRP compound aluminum brake pads.
In addition, the TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes are very easy to install and require minimal maintenance.
The TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes have a clean but edgy CNC machined look and come in an anodized grey that will go with almost all bike colors. The TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes are very reasonably priced at $ 99.00 per caliper. You can purchase the TRP T930 direct mount rim brakes directly on TRP’s website or through a TRP brake retail dealer.
