18° Braking System / 18 Degree Braking System

18°  Braking System
18°  Braking System

The inspiration of the Stop braking system comes from equestrianism,it changed the strenuous and monotonous brake method and it is very different from traditional bike braking system.When making a brake,we don't need to hold the handbrake tightly any more . All we need to do is just stretch the upper part of our body and make the barycenter backward,then the saddle under which there is a mechanical braking device has an 18° slope ,thus we finish braking a bike with natural behaviour.
