Hydraulic disc brake systems are quickly becoming a thing and for very good reasons. Hydraulic disc brakes for bikes provide all weather reliability with plenty of stopping power and modulation that is as smooth as the finest silk. With a gentle squeeze of the smooth, ergonomic brake lever, high-performance fluid is pushed to the disc caliper, giving the bike rider super smooth performance.
Mechanical brakes use a pulling force of a cable to bring your mountain bike or road bike to a stop. But a hydraulic system uses the pushing force of oil to bring you to a stop, in the same way automobiles have been enjoying for generations.
This technology has finally come full circle and is now being embraced by the biking community. We stock a wide range of hydraulic disc brake systems in various sizes and from a number of manufacturers including Avid and Shimano.
