VarioLever Brake Side Black/ Silver
Vario Levers represent a revolution in ergonomics, functionality and
safety. In addition to allowing adjustable reach, they are also
adjustable in length. These levers allow precise adjustment to exactly
suit the needs of the rider in various situations and additionally,
really look great. Adjusted all the way in, the levers are about 1/2
inch closer to the grip however it actually feels like more because the
shape of the lever is more parallel to the handlebar than the stock
lever. A shorter lever can offer more precise control with less effort.
With the "Vario Levers" it's now possible to activate the brake with two or three fingers, without pinching the remaining
finger(s). This allows the lever to be adjusted closer to the grip,
safely. Length adjustment is quickly and easily carried out by loosening
the set screw, setting the desired length and then tightening.
unique feature of the 'Vario Lever' is the ability to easily adjust the
reach by turning the adjuster with your index finger while riding. This
is useful when dealing with a changing pressure point, when for example negotiating a technical mountain road. The
adjustment wheel is easy to operate, even with thick winter gloves.
You need have no doubt about the structural integrity of these levers.
Even fully extended, the lever can withstand a force of over 130 pounds
without incident. The levers are exquisitely machined of aluminum
- High-strength aluminum (AL 7075 T6)
- Exquisitely anodized.
- Made in Germany
Tip: After you install the levers, adjust the blade length to
suit your preference and then tighten the screw. A drop of Thread
Locking Fluid on the threads of the adjusting screw is highly
recommended. (available under the Related Products)
