The Fouriers Aero V Brake BR-Dx005 is specially made for the Giant Propel and the Giant Envie bicycles. These bikes are the Giant bicycles Marianne Vos and Marcel Kittel have been riding with. In 2014 these brakes had some victories in the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France. Aerodynamic frames ask for aerodynamic brakes. When riding fast you need to be able to brake even faster. Fouriers brakes are high-quality brakes, which meets the demands of the professional rider.

I put these on my 2016 Propel SL, first time pulling the brakes and I nearly went over the top of the handlebars. The braking performance is a massive improvement over the standard Giant propel brakes. These brakes should be standard issue for the Propel SL range but at least I have them now and the Mantel delivery service was excellent, well packaged. Very happy!

Big improvement over 2016 Giant SpeedControl Ti brakes
These are a big improvement over the standard Giant brakes on my 2016 Propel SL. Under braking using the Giant brakes you could see the brake arms flexing noticeably and this gave the levers a spongy, unresponsive and ultimately grabby braking feel. The Fouriers are at least twice as stiff, giving much improved performance and far more encouraging lever feedback and feel. Brings the braking up to the standard of the rest of the Dura-Ace groupset on the bike. Worth the money to upgrade as the Giant brakes were the only let-down on the bike.

Bought these because the clearance from my rear brake wire to tyre was less than 1mm when I fitted continentals on my giant propel. Now I have a big gap, the way it should be. Also the breaks are much better. I recommend them!
Lots of room to fit any tyre you want
Look better than standard giant ones

over priced for what they are
Good to achieve the result of being able to run 25c tyres on the propel but well over priced. Although mantel were the cheapest on the web
