Brake power at its best, and that with half the weight only – a brake system with 120 g weight, but no limitation on brake power.
Fibula combines seemingly impossible traits. Weighting only 120g, front and rear, it provides brake power on par with Dura Ace®, Red®, Super Record® & Co. This is possible due to an innovative design concept which implements the exceptional traits of CFRP.
Front and rear brakes have different leverage ratios according to the brake power required. The front wheel brake with a power increasing lever system permits very high brake forces. The slightly reduced transmission ratio on the rear wheel brake leads to a sensible distribution of power.
Fibula can be operated with all current brake levers.
Our 2014 review said the following:
"From deep in the heart of Germany comes a small family-run company that is totally dedicated to weight savings through carbon composite design. Petra, Marcus and Marco make up a unique and talented crew, producing some of the world's finest forks, cranksets, and of course brakes. What is unique about the THM Fibulas is the fact that the front and rear brakes are designed completely differently, to tackle the unique requirements that each component will face through its normal usage. This true dedication to proper engineering has endeared THM to Blacksmith Cycle and we are proud to be Canada's home for these unique products.
We've been impressed with the performance of these brakes, particularly compared to some other full carbon options. Adequate braking power for even bigger riders, we've had one taller customer note INCREASED stopping power and better modulation than Campy Record. A stunning svelte appearance, and a design uniqueness that cannot be matched are aspects of the Fibulas that are worth RESPECT, as Ali G would say. A great choice for GranFondo riders, and super-light project bikes, though perhaps a bit delicate for uber-heavyweights or crit racers who rely on consistently strong braking pulls. Though they carry a hefty price tag, their insane 125 gram TOTAL weight are worth the price of admission. Oh, and they can be ordered in matte or glossy...sweet."
