Origin-8 (Tektro) Ergo Style Compact Brake Levers for Drop (Road) Handlebars
Made by Tektro under the Origin8 brand, these levers are a lower cost lever set similar to the Cane Creek (The only difference is a higher polished lever and different rubber hood on the Cane Creek.)
This is the "compact" version designed for riders with smaller hands, shorter fingers.
These are super brake levers for road bikes, made by Tektro. These low-friction levers have a high mechanical advantage, and can significantly upgrade the braking performance of an older bike without changing the calipers.
They bear a very strong resemblance to Campagnolo Ergo brake/shift levers, only without the shift mechanism.
They're very well made, with resin bodies and cold-forged 6061 aluminum levers, shaped for left/right hand individually.
These levers also include a Campagnolo style quick release button, very handy if you are using them with older calipers that don't incorporate a quick release, or if you are using wide tires that require more clearance than a single quick release can supply.
Note: We buy these Tektro levers from a couple of different suppliers. The levers you receive might have packaging with a different brand name than Origin8, but they are the exact same levers.
