This Tektro Oryx Cantilever Brake is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Oryx cantilever brakes have forged alloy arms and use linear (not coil) springs which make a very efficient cyclocross brake but are also great for touring and Audax style bikes as well
A favourite among the nations top cyclocross riders. Finish and looks are similar to other canti’s, but the pricing is far more attractive.
"Tektro Oryx cantilevers are compatible with STI & Ergo levers: they work better than LX canti's & clear mud far better than the Tektro Mini-V's specced on many cyclo-cross bikes" Cycling Plus
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.
Tektro manufacture high quality braking systems for a wide range of bicycles. Tektro are trusted by many large bike manufacturers to provide reliable brakes on their complete bikes.
