Simply put, the Avid Shorty Ultimate cantilever brakes truly are the ultimate cyclocross brakes, offering a perfect balance of mud clearance and stopping power. The Shorty Ultimates offer two brakes in one. In the past, you always had to choose between narrow or wide set brakes. With the Shorty Ultimates, you can tune your brakes for specific conditions.

Go crazy and set the front wide for mud clearance and the rear narrow for heel clearance when dismounting.
