Ever make a decision about an entire brake system just because of lever shape? Some just don't feel "right," and no matter how much fiddling, they'll never be right. Twenty6 offers the solution -- The Twenty6 Dualie Lever. The Twenty6 Dualie is a CNC'd 6061-T6 aluminum lever, with two finger grabs, hence the name. It's light and stiff and easy to grab. Anything that adds confidence will add speed, so when you feel comfy with these levers, you'll fly, braking at just the right moments with just the right force, and then letting go to get back up to maximum velocity. This lever can replace stock levers on Avid's Juicy and Code brakes, on Formula the Oro and Puro series, on Hayes Mag, Nine, and El Camino Trail, and on all Shimano hydraulic disc brakes 2008 and before (except Dual Control.) Remove the pivot bolt, unscrew the reach adjustment and pull the old lever out. Installing the Dualie is as easy as threading in the reach adjustment screw to the nut, install the pivot bolt and adjust reach. It's pretty simple.The result is a better-performing brake system and a look that screams custom. Available in eight colors: Black, Blue, Green, Orange, Pink, Purple, Red, and Yellow. Weight per lever is 24g.Please note: if you'd like to replace your Juicy Carbon levers, you'll need to install or swap out the push rod barrels with a set from a Juicy 7. We can special order these for you.

Strengths: Looks, Finish, and function.
Weaknesses: It not compatible to every brake
This is an awesome lever up grade. I'm a one finger brake person it fit perfectly. it offers extra stiffness and modulation on the brake. Fit and finish is great. Offers in many color to fit your bike color theme.
If you want to up grade your brake this is the lever you want.
Strengths: Great fit, easy feel and great design. The machining and weight are a huge plus, they are built well.
Ive used DB levers and they are right there I like the design of these a bit better and they are lighter. The finish is incredible and the quality is right there. Ive been abusin an original set for over a year and crashed several times. The levers have taken some serious abuse and aside of scuffs are still going strong.
Heres the real bonus on these is the throw of the lever make it as easy to hold down wioth 1 finger as it does with 2 so you have a easier time if only one finger makes it to the lever.
