The new Tectonic® brake shoe by
Kool-Stop International Inc. is a forged alloy holder that allows the rider to
customize the exact positioning of the friction materials. The friction inserts
are designed to interlock together and are secured into the holder on all sides.
The Pad-Lock® washer system has been improved by incorporating the convex pivot
adjustment into the backing plate; thus allowing for the reduction in the number
of washers needed to achieve all spacing requirements.
