The new-for-2016 design sees the Gossamer Pro gain in both stiffness and wide-rim capacity. Its lightweight dual-pivot layout turns on quality thrust bearings, minimising friction and boosting modulation, while stainless main pivot bolts provide ultimate strength. Cable attachment hardware is also stainless for true longevity.
The brand new pad compound uses a cartridge pad holder, and at 331g for a pair the Pro is lighter than the standard Gossamer brakeset. The ratcheting quick release lever makes wheel changes rapid, and spring tension is easily tailored. The Gossamer’s unique, cold forged I-beam construction is wider and stronger than ever, finished in silky black anodising and defined with hard-wearing laser-etched graphics.
