The SPRINGFIELD BRAKE drops the two ordinary (and confusing) brake springs and replaces them with one central spring that applies the same force to each arm, requiring no additional adjustment. This makes assembly incredibly easy – just bolt it on and go. The brake arms are designed to maximize stiffness and save weight without adding excessive cost. By die-casting the arms and using shared tooling to make each side, the Springfield meets all of the original design goals, resulting in a very powerful and affordable brake. Features new Odyssey Ghost Pads
The GHOST PAD addresses the hassles of brake pad installation by eliminating the traditional dome shaped washers used for toe-in. The pad improves stiffness by building the toe-in into the pad shape and utilizing a solid extruded aluminum frame at its core. The Ghost Pad’s assembly consists of simply lining it up with the rim and tightening down an M6 female bolt.
Lever with cable
The SPRINGFIELD LEVER is easy to install and remove without having to wrestle grips on and off. An ordinary hinged clamp can be bulky and expensive so a new clamping design made specifically for die-casting was used. This approach keeps the lever reliable and affordable.
This is the full kit including cable & all mount hardware.
Odyssey Springfield brake kitBy: Kevin Maxfield on 15 September 2020Only comes with right hand lever, so need to turn upside down if you use on left side. Used on kids bmx with a front brake set up that is also on right side. Works fine just most bikes in Australia are left back and right front. Pads were noisey, had to change them out also.

Thanks for your review. Yes, these only come with a right lever, because that's exactly what they are, a BMX Brake for right hand lever / rear which is by far the most popular configuration for BMX. They are the best sellling BMX Brake set in Australia with good reason, easy to fit, reliable and good value for money. Noisy pads generally aren't an issue with BMX, as stopping power is more important. For kids bikes rather than BMX there are plenty of other options, possibly a case here of not buying the right type of brake set for the type of bike.
