Miche’s RS rim brakes are constructed using a special lightweight alloy that’s forged and then CNC machined to minimise weight. The body is hard anodized to keep them looking good for longer – and that surface is certainly hard.
The tough, light, quality approach continues in the rest of the construction with the first pivot and pivot screws built from Ergal 7075 alloy, and the second pivot using titanium. The dual pivot action is controlled by double coil springs, and manifests itself at the lever with plenty of resistance and feel when braking.
