The Duplex Lever is a single brake lever that pulls on two brake cables simultaneously. It was originally designed for bike polo players, to allow them to use both brakes while swinging a polo mallet with their free hand. Since its introduction the duplex has generated considerable excitement among adaptive cyclists as well.
Two barrel adjusters are safely tucked away next to the handlebar.They give you the ability to fine-tune how the brakes engage when the lever is pulled. Because the cable tension is independent, you can have one brake hit the rim before the other, or have them both kick in at the same time.
The perch of the Duplex is symmetrical and allows it to be used as a left or right-handed brake lever by removing the pivot and flipping over the lever arm.
Additionally, the double pivot allows the Duplex to work with either long or short-pull brakes, just like the Cross Lever, by placing the pivot pin in the inner or outer pivot hole.
To use the Duplex with long-pull brakes like the Motolite or other side-pulls or V-brakes, place the pivot in the outermost hole. To use it with short-pull brakes like the Racer or other cantilever or caliper brakes, place the pivot in the inside hole.
A reach adjust screw can adjust how far the lever rests from the handlebar, putting it right where you want it.
