Bike Disc Brakes
When disc brakes first made the transition from motor cross to mountain bikes in the late 1990's some riders were sceptical about the benefits that a rotor based, hydraulic or mechanical caliper system could offer. However, time and technology have marched on, and now the performance offered by today's high technology disc brakes speaks for itself- not only keeping your brakes out of the mud, but increasing (rather than decreasing) stopping power in wet, muddy or generally challenging conditions. Modern disc brakes are easy to maintain, and changing brake pads is a very simple operation. Here at Planet X we sell a range of leading brands like Shimano, Avid and Tektro, giving you the chance to upgrade your discs at the web's very best prices.
