A bicycle brake is used to slow down or cease a bicycle. There have been varied sorts of brake used all
through historical past, and a number of other are nonetheless in use today.


Gravity lunatics swear by the essential Hayes brake and it is apparent why. The long lever and massive
203mm rotor means stonking stopping energy (a 229mm improve is due quickly), though the blunt, abrupt
feel means control is learnt, not guaranteed.


The brake's legendary repute within the mountains was backed up by wonderful performance on the dyno,
with the rotor only warping quickly at temperatures you will hardly ever see on the hill. The unique Hayes
slotted publish mount makes becoming very easy, and either lever may be run on the left or right. Bedding
in is quick, pad life is lengthy and total reliability is excellent. Varied improve choices are available and it's
not that heavy either.


For years these brakes have been the standard in downhill and freeride. I do not understand how. They are
first rate brakes however lack true stopping energy and modulation. I took these off my wifes bike as a result
of she complained they pulsed and launch whereas going downhill. I did not consider her but as soon as they
have been on my bike they did the same thing. I've gotten use to them but they don't have the ability of my
Magura Julies or my Shimano LX's. I'd only suggest these in the event that they have been on a really
discounted sale or were on the bike when I bought it. Both manner I might substitute them with a set of
Julies as soon as I got the $90/wheel jensonusa.com needs for them. The fact that these brakes routinely go
for one hundred-a hundred and fifty per wheel baffles me. These brakes have not failed me yet.
