Cane Creek El Platino 2 Limited Edition eeBrakes bring back ‘remix’ of popular rim brake color

Rim brake revivalists rejoice! Cane Creek Cycling Components brought back its El Platino rim eeBrakes “by popular demand.”

The limited edition kit punches at a lighter weight than most competitors, at a claimed 85.3 grams (front) and 83.7 grams (rear). As in the past, the eeBrake fits rims from 19-28mm with a 39-49mm reach. Curative touches include toolless caliper centering, a titanium barrel adjuster, and a center-aligned cable path to cut through the air smoother and spread out braking force evenly.

Cane Creek uses aluminum, stainless, and titanium parts to put it together and includes a set of carbon-compatible pad inserts with each set. eeBrakes work most optimally with Campagnolo, Shimano, or SRAM levers. Each caliper is available in regular or direct mount.

The brand makes each two-tone platinum- and pewter-coated set by hand in the U.S. at its Asheville, N.C. facility. The eeBrake limited edition El Platino 2 costs $780 MSRP per set.

Platino was one of my favorite color, good to see them a second time around.
Combined with an RAW Aluminum frame = perfect <3
