Cane Creek eeBrakes

Cane CreekCycling Components has entered a long-term partnership with eecycleworks of California. eecycleworks currently produces a handful of components, all of which are incredibly well-designed and unique. Their hallmark product is the eebrake caliper brake. Cane Creek will first take over the production, marketing, sales and distribution of the eebrake line, and then the two companies will collaborate on future component development.

Described by media as, “engineering brilliance”, eebrakes are truly in a class of their own. Relentless engineering and precision craftsmanship have resulted in a lighter brake with dramatically higher overall stiffness, better modulation and more power than the current industry leading brakes being offered. Company co-founder, Craig Edwards, was originally known in the cycling industry for his “Sweet Wings” Cranks in the mid 90’s, a product which in it’s own right set the course for what cranks are today.

“eecycleworks is very excited to partner with Cane Creek,” says Edwards. “The synergy created will be a huge plus for eecycleworks and eecycleworks customers in all areas including manufacturing, product quality, marketing, sales and service”. Moving forward in this venture, Edwards will remain intimately involved with the eebrakes series and work closely with the Cane Creek team to develop new innovative products. His manufacturing and design talent paired with an attention-to-detail and passion to build the best, meshes perfectly with the acumen of Cane Creek.

“In a previous life I had the good fortune to be project lead for a couple of uber bikes developed in conjunction with an F1 constructor”, says Cane Creek President, Brent Graves. “As the bikes were to sell for more than USD 20,000, we wanted something beyond the available top tier groups. After a lot of surprises and disappointments with the exotic parts on the market, we were blown away by Craig’s brake design and thoroughness. While it had the price and weight of the other exotics, it did not compromise on performance, reliability, or adjustment. From there Craig and I vowed to find a way to work together in the future.”
