bikerumor monday mystery pic from ruckus components

Photo submitted by Nick, who saw these on a Cannondale over at Ruckus Components, “None of us know what they are and there is no branding on the brakes at all.” If you know anything about these brakes let us know in the ‘comments’ section.

Planet X CNC calipers. White labeled and sold under various brand names. One of the best performing brakes at 200 grams for the pair.

There’s something about them that remind me of the Grand Cru brakes.

You can call them Planet X or whatever but they are noname brakes made by a Taiwanese company called MrControl. They come in many different models and I think the brake in your pic have MrControls internal item No. “JULY-7900 CNC”

Actually they made in Taiwan by company called Fouriers. They make nice CNC stuff for others (e.g. Token)

I agree with Wally, Feather Breaks, or a knock-off of Feather Brakes

Yep, they are Planet X Ultra Light CNC brakes, also sold by other companies.

Yeahaaa!!!_: most people regard them quite well for their functionality, albeit some find them quirky to set up and prone to go out of center.

This brake is made by a small taiwanese manufacturer called Mr. Control:

They have a lot of sweet stuff!

They might also be Origin8’s or Token’s version of the Planet X brake. All the same thing, AFAIK.

They have the Origin8 pads on them which would lead me to believe they are of the same brand.

They are Origin-8 Torq Lites. They have OR8 pads on them. I am a rep for J&B Importers that sells them. http://www.jbimporters.com/web/checking_product_description.php?part_number=12904

I am 100 0/0 sure that these brakes are from mr. Control equipped withSwissStop pads. I am a heavy rider and use these brakes since years. Stromg and powerful, and super light weight.

Have the Planet X version…Love ’em…and they do go out of center. But they are light, stop reasonably well and come in colors- …cheap too.

These brakes are sold under different names. The version I saw in person was in the name of Mr. Stoppy or something similar. Above is the (rather biased) comparison of said brake to different ‘superlight brakes’ on the market done by ee brakes.

It should probably be noted that the ‘test’ (or and ‘ad’ rather,) above does not use the same pads for the brakes being tested and is highly based on subjective ‘feel’ of the tester. Le Tour magazine has done a similar but much more well controlled and scientific test few years back.

I’ve been running the planet X version for over a year. Finicky to set up (you need to get housing length just right), occasionally challenging to center for the same reason, difficult to do quick wheel swaps with 25mm tires, but oh-so-light and plenty of stopping power with the Swiss Stop green pads..

Mr. control brakes. The e-tube threw me off for a second, but no the are not electronic.

http://www.mrcontrol-bike.com/2012/index.php here you can find all brakes from Mr. Control. It is right that this factory produce brakes under different brand names. I remember they also had a cheaper version on Ridley and BH road bikes

Actually this is a break from a Taiwanese manufacturer that has its own brand named Fouriers: http://www.fouriers-bike.com/product.php?class=22 . I can confirm that they are the original manufacturers since I personally know them. If you have made any reviews for this bicycle please feel free to send a message/post on Pedaling Forward on facebook.
