With practice, effectively using a rim brake increases traction, increases control on drops to slopes, reduces fatigue on bumpy descents, and even increases speed by smoothing out your pedalling. Secure grip on your brake lever is essential for all of this.
The Star Fighter extension clamps to your brake lever and provides increased braking control without getting in the way of your legs and non-braking fingers. Compatible with most rim and disc brakes.

This is a very simple and effective brake lever attachment. Pricey, and it does have a strange name ;)... But: if you ever felt your uni needed a season pick-me-up, highly useful, decoration then Mr Holm's Starfigher is what you need! Attaches very easily and securely and is really of very high quality. Stocking filler?... Go shell out £19!
