The TriRig team launched a new brake, handlebar and stem with smart and inventive designs today. Read below for first impressions of their three new products (note: products have not been fully tested yet) and find out more info at Tririg.com.
TriRig Omega X
The Omega X is an updated version of TriRig’s now well-established Omega brake. The main feature of the Omega X, and of the original Omega brake, is its aerodynamic design. While the new ‘X’ version does not improve on the aerodynamics of the original—which arguably would be difficult given the excellent initial design—many other features have been notably improved upon.
The Omega X is chock full of what we’d like to call “How is it that EVERY ______ (insert name of part) isn’t made this way??” The Omega X is one of the lightest brakes on the market at 134 grams. Installation and adjustability are a breeze. The front plate now includes magnets which fix it firmly in place concealing the brake’s internals, while individually adjustable brake pads make the change between different wheel widths an absolute joy.
It might seem like a stretch to gush over something as mundane as brake pad adjustment, but when you compare TriRig to the competition, you will begin to realize why we are excited. Compatibility is also well thought-out, with adapters included for use with anything from traditional single-mount brakes, Shimano direct-mount and even TRP U-brakes. The Omega X is a brake to consider for any bicycle that you own… That goes for road or tri bikes!
