‘V-brakes’ are sometimes also called ‘linear-pull brakes’ or ‘direct-pull brakes’. Since there is no intervening mechanism between the cable and the arms, the design is called “direct-pull”. And since the arms move the same distance that the cable moves with regard to its housing, the design is also called “linear-pull”. V-brakes function well with the suspension systems found on many mountain bikes because they do not require a separate cable stop on the frame or fork. Because of the higher mechanical advantage of V-brakes, they require brake levers with longer cable travel than levers intended for older types of brakes.
