FSA has revealed that it is to broaden its catalogue beyond road rim brakes and cantilevers for cyclocross with the introduction of both K-force and Afterburner hydraulic discs for mountain bikes.

Utilising both tool-free stroke and reach adjustability, these brakes can be set-up on-the-fly for a wide range of bite control and hand sizes. Each brake is offered with front and rear specific hoses, which, according to FSA, results in exceptionally balanced braking performance. The flip flop lever features a integrated asymmetrical reservoir making them extremely compact on the handlebar and easy to bleed.

The build makes good use of magnesium castings, carbon composite levers, and titanium hardware, which results in individual wheel weights of around 300 grams. The two models will sell for US$369 (K-Force) and US$289 (Afterburner) and will be available in Q1 2014 via UK distributor Windwave.

To get a first hand look at the product, visit FSA's booth next week at Eurobike (booth A1-402-403), or at Interbike from September 16th to 20th.
