TRP-Hylex-RS-polished-silver-hydraulic-singlespeed-road-disc-brakes04

TRP blind-sided us with these new ultra polished Hylex RS brakeset, which we joked stood for “Real Shiny”. Built off the standard Hylex hydraulic brake system meant for singlespeed dropbar road/gravel/cyclocross bikes, these get a drilled lever blade on top of the chromed finish. They’ll also work with their add-on Di2 climber switch, letting you add them to any bike with gears or without if you’re wiring up Shimano’s electronic group.

They’ll also be available in a polished black. More pics of these and more below…

They’re a little lighter thanks to the drilled levers, but we’re talking a few grams off the claimed 352g weight (per wheel).

Retail price will be $169 per wheel when they drop in November.

Their new tooled thru axle will be shipping by end of year on all forks and give you a sleeker look. The handle has the hex wrench section on it to tighten the axle into place, then pops out and goes in your pocket. Or just use your mini-tool. The front fits on their cyclocross fork, which also saw a couple updates at Eurobike, and a rear will fit any standard 12×142 rear end to get it matched across the bike. Aftermarket versions to upgrade older forks will come bit later, price TBD.

Nothing standard about 12×142. E-thru, maxle, x12, etc.. Would like to know exactly which “standard” this axle fits, as the boutique euro brands of bolt-on 12mm’s are extremely expensive.

12×142 and X12 are used in the same system actually. X12 refers to the axle system, and 142 is the resulting width of the whole unit.

They look nice, but I’m waiting for a set with carbon levers. It makes such a difference in cold weather.

@Seraph & @CW – CW is correct. Each axle standard has its own thread pitch that makes them incompatible. And Syntace’s x12 is it’s own thing with a taper on one end. So… 12 x 142 is not a “Standard”, except in length, and even then there is variation.

Three different thread pitches on the right side, two different ends on the left. Conceivably, to solve the left side issue, the conical part for Syntace compatibility could be an extra piece.

12×142 is a hub standard, not a frame standard, with the axle migrating from being part of the hub to part of the frame.

Similar to the Industry Nine axle, but less bling.
