The Omega is getting even better

I wanted to post a quick update of what's going on with the Omega project. As I mentioned before, I've been refining the shape of the brake based on lessons learned with Dr. Coggan in his wind tunnel. The video below shows you what the final shape looks like. It's super sleek, narrow, and should hide within the profile of even the narrowest forks. Despite the diet, the interal mechanisms have actually become stiffer, and the brake is now even lighter than before. I'll have more news once the aluminum prototypes are in, probably a few weeks from now. As always, you can use this link to bookmark all Omega-related news. Enjoy the video!
