Are brakes making a comeback? Did DC pulling out of BMX leave a hole in the stopping market that needed filling? I don’t really know the answer to either of those, but what I can tell you is that the choices of brakes available has been growing lately. Kink‘s Desist brakes are the newest ones to come onto the market, and just like all of Kink’s products they are well thought out and designed. They feature forged arms, a low stack height, Kool Stop pads, a two piece straddle cable to reduce drag, and unique straddle cable pivots to smooth things out even more. They’re available in black, blue, and bronze and will be hitting shops and mail orders any day now.
