Penta Brake System is a new and innovative system for bicycles.
To put this hydraulic brake system into effect, you need only a little power. Contrary to a normal hydraulic brake, it is much easier to apply the brake force with this innovative thumb-brake-system. Since the lines are wired within the frame, the unwanted clutter disappears. The low-maintenance brake is operated by the handlebar and stem. The whole body can be removed.
