Purple Projects: PAUL Components Touring Cantis and Moon Units in Stock Nov 5, 2012

The first product in the Purple Projects collaboration line is here.

I love the PAUL Components Touring Cantis. I’ve had them on my touring bike, my cross bike and just about everyone I know has them on at least one of their bikes. As a throwback to the 80’s MTB era of bright anodizing, I teamed up with PAUL to produce a limited run of purple Touring Cantis and matching Moon Units.


The Purple Projects line fully supports Made in the USA components. Stay tuned for more!

*Please note: The anodizing is less blue than shown here, it tends to be more magenta, much like the purple anodizing from the 80’s. It’s hard to get the tone right in these photos.

      I had to stick to the most trusted / ridden model. I’ve never had neo-retros so I can’t swear by them like I can these.

          Weird, how does the North Face get away with their “Purple Label” line without RL sending them a C&D?

            People that read my site work at RL

    Are these good enough to race cross on or should I stick with shorty ultimates?

    • http://theradavist.com John Watson

      I know a lot of people that race cross on these.

    Hey dude, is this enough for one bike? I’m assuming so since “pair of moon units” but sometimes some merchants list a pair of canti’s as one sku (counting each lever arm as a “cantilever”. Just want to be sure as $170 is a good deal for custom ano pauls!

      Yes two brakes, two moon units

      Pardon the brevity. Sent from my iPhone.

    Aw bunk, I missed them! Does “Stay tuned for more!” mean that you might get a couple more sets? I’d kill to have these on my touring rig.

    • Mangalang
