The K-Force brake has a unique I-Beam forging with a dual pivot design. The I-Beam design is maximized for lightweight, stiffness and stopping power.
It uses thrust bearings for improved smoothness, longevity and serviceability. Titanium hardware is used throughout, as are carbon pad holders, for improved weight.
Rim brakes for bikes use the sidewall of the rim to reduce speed, this is done by a pad on either side applying friction against the rim, which reduces your momentum. Road brake callipers have been redesigned over the years and now use a system called 'dual pivot' which means the brake arms pivot off centre to apply a higher amount of pressure on the rim to increase your stopping power. Most manufacturers use dual pivot callipers on the front and rear, but some Campagnolo brakes use a traditional single pivot on the rear to 'balance' the braking power, the logic behind this is that as you brake your weight shifts on to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking force is applied to the front.
The driving force of bicycle component maker Full Speed Ahead is well captured in their name. FSA stays ahead of the competition through design innovation and manufacturing expertise. FSA's manufacturing base is in Taiwan, but they are truly a global company, with offices in the USA & Italy that collaborate to direct FSA's component development. FSA offers solutions for speed across a broad range of bicycle components; from headsets to wheels; cranksets and bottom brackets, Vision Time Trial & Triathlon bars and handlebars & stems. Why FSA win: Using ceramic, stainless steel, titanium and a half dozen grades of aluminium and numerous composite materials including molded, tubular and high-compression plate carbon fibre gives them the ability to apply the perfect material to each specific application.
