Choosing the right disc brakes can make the difference between fast, exciting rides, safe in the knowledge of stopping competency; and bare-knuckle, insecure and frankly dangerous descents. Disc brakes are standard issue on modern mountain bikes- they work best in the wet, and sensibly keep you precious brake contact points a long way from the mud and gunk underfoot. Good brakes should be low maintenance, and with the exception of applications where absolute simplicity and serviceability is required, hydraulically operated. Our range of disc brakes are suitable not just for MTB's but any disc equipped frame and fork combo- cyclocross, hybrid or urban. Choose bigger rotor sizes for better stopping power under load and more efficient heat dissipation. Check out the web's biggest deals on disc brakes from Avid, Tektro and Shimano here!
