The Paul Components E-Lever is a small single-finger, short-pull brake lever. It works with standard side-pull caliper, cantilever, and other short-pull brakes.
There’s something to be said for the clean looks of bare track handlebars, but riding brakeless can be hazardous on the road. The E-Lever is a tiny brake lever that keeps your handlebars looking clean while providing that extra braking power when needed.
The E-Lever is available in either black or silver anodized, as well as polished. The polished version has a mirror finish and looks especially great on chromed drop bars or next to a polished quill stem.
Because of its compact design, the E-Lever has less leverage than Paul's other brake levers. For this reason, it is not recommended as the sole method of braking. The E-Lever should only be used in conjunction with other brake mechanisms such as a fixed gear hub or coaster brake. For a similar brake lever with greater leverage, take a look at Paul's Cross Lever.
Paul makes this lever in two clamp diameters to fit road and mountain handlebars. The 23.8mm version fits on the narrower grip section of road handlebars. The 22.2mm version fits standard mountain bike handlebars. There is an integrated barrel adjuster for quick adjustments.
