Having just announced their new Invert upside-down gravel fork before the show, Cane Creek’s Sea Otter booth news was mostly about new colors for their existing components.

Their best-selling limited edition eeBrakes was silver, so they’ve decided to make it a standard color option. Black bits like the return spring and some pivot hardware add a bit of contrast, but for folks seeking a classic silver brake caliper and enhanced performance, this is it.

Meanwhile, their eeWings titanium cranks will get a black automotive finish with matte clearcoat for a stealthier look. Offered in road/gravel and mountain bike options, they’ll better match black cranksets from compatible brands like Wolf Tooth Components who make 3-bolt SRAM interface chainrings.

On the brighter side of the spectrum, their Interlok headset spacers will now come in all the same Chroma Studio colors as their headsets and other bits for a fully matched bike. They have an interlocking grooved design that lets them nest together for a stronger, creak-free cockpit.

They’ve also added a new ZS56/ZS56 configuration to their Hellbender 70 headset line for bikes with oversized head tubes (like Transition’s long travel alloy bikes). The Hellbender lineup is basically the same as their 110 lineup but without the lifetime warranty. That means stainless steel bearings and robust sealing. It comes in black and the red, blue, gold, and silver Chroma Studio colors.

I wish the welds on those cranks didn’t look so terrible. I’d definitely have them if they didn’t.

I’d be interested in a functional comparison with these calipers and “old school” rim calipers. Side pulls are still good but not as good as centre pulls and Def not as good as disc. It’s not clear from your description what the configuration is with the CCs.
Back in the 80s/90s Campagnolo side pull brake calipers were very good except for the awful but today, much sought after C Record DELTA calipers. Nice looking but shame about the lack of pressure. If you don’t know, it’s all about leverage, or lack of it with the DELTA calipers.

I spent one snowy Pa winter getting a customers bike with Delta brakes working. A combo of gore ride on cables, a thorough cleaning and a set of dia compe brake levers and they worked amazingly.
Until the guy rode the bike in rain and the got gummed up.
Heavy, yes.
Pretty, I’d say yes.
But they could work if you took the time. They were not for the ham fisted and that’s where they get the bad rap. And a damn 2.5mm screw

Headset spacers should not have logos on them. They never look good that way, from any company.

White Industries makes nice metal headset spacers, including tapered spacers, in a host of colors with no branding. And their black headset spacers look oh so sweet with their stealth black headsets (anodized black after engraving the White Industries logo).
