The Duplex Lever is a single brake
lever that pulls on two brake cables simultaneously. Originally
designed for bike polo players (to allow them to use both brakes while
swinging a polo mallet with their free hand,) the duplex is also an
excellent solution for adaptive cyclists.

The two barrel adjusters are located
next to the handlebar, and allow you to fine-tune how the brakes engage
when the lever is pulled. The cable tension is independent, so you can
have one brake hit the rim before the other, or have them both kick in
at the same time.
The Duplex is symmetrical
and may be used as a left or right-handed brake lever by
removing the pivot and flipping over the lever arm. The double pivot
works with either long or short-pull brakes, by
placing the pivot pin in the inner or outer pivot hole.
To use the Duplex with long-pull brakes
or other side-pulls or V-brakes, place the pivot in the outermost hole.
To use it with short-pull brakes, and cantilever or caliper brakes, place the pivot in the inside hole.
A reach adjust screw can adjust how far
the lever rests from the handlebar, putting it right where you want it.
