E-MTB / Hydraulic disc brake

E-MTB

TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018

TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2018

With the introduction of E-MTB, riders can go farther and faster than ever before. E-MTB utilizes a completely new design to offer a brake specifically engineered for eMTB. With weight being a less predominant factor in e-bikes, rotor thickness was expanded to 2.3mm - lowering heat buildup by 8% and reducing rotor deformation by 15%. The caliper is specifically designed around 2.3mm thick rotors, and it utilizes an open top design for easy pad replacement when working with the added weight of an eMTB. The caliper also features hybrid pistons, offering the ideal blend of lightweight heat management and smooth reliable actuation.
