The TRP CX9 Linear Brake Set features a linear pull design which provides plenty of stopping power and is compatible with most lever types. Great for any type of riding, the cartridge brake pad system with an 'inplace' adjustment system makes setting the brakes up quick and simple, whilst the 90mm arm length means panniers and racks do not interfere. - L.M.
Please Note: The calipers are front and rear specific, this is marked in the box. The TRP logo on the black top arm is silver not grey as shown.

Significant improvement over standard V-brakes. Squeal loudly, but probably need to experiment with brake blocks. Overall pleased. Look much classier than my V-brakes.
As powerfull as cable discs without the weight and complexity. I am using these with old style Shimano STI levers and they have to be set up with fairly low pad clearance. The lever feel is fairly soft but the power is excellent. There is also no judder or noise that can happen with cantilevers.
Like most people, i've be unsatisfied with the stopping power and fiddly nature of the canti-style brake so i thought i'd give these a go. I remember when v-brakes were new on the market for MTB's and the difference they made to my riding at that time, these are exactly the same. Power is vastly improved and set up was easier, although not as easier as i'd imagined from the other reveiew but read the instructions and you'll be fine. Mud clearance is fine too!
In researching my purchase, it seems that most buyers were switching from cantis. Improved braking and decreased fork shutter were all stated as reasons for switching. In my case, my bike was already equipped with Tektroâ€™s RX-6 mini-v brakes. I canâ€™t objectively say that the money spent on the CX-9 decreased my braking distances - the RX-6 stopped my bike just fine. The main difference is the ease of adjustment. From the more substantial spring with its hex key adjustment screw to the spacers on the brake pad arms, I was able to install the brakes and dial in the adjustment very easily. The resulting benefit is better brake lever feel (for both the STI-levers and cross tops).
