Hydraulic disc brakes

Hydraulic disc brakes

The hydraulic disc brakes provide many advantages. For example, you are assured of excellent braking performance under all circumstances. So if you are cycling in the rain or on a muddy road, you can come to a quick standstill. It is light to operate and the braking power can be applied progressively thanks to the use of oil pressure. An additional advantage of hydraulic disc brakes is that they do not wear the rim.
