Brake systems for road bike, mountain bike and Co.

No matter whether sprinting on the straight, on crisp climbs or on rapid descents. Who is sporty with road bike and mountain bike, needs not only a buttery smooth drive, but also toxic brakes that bring the bike safely to a halt in any situation. Starting from brake pads to brake levers to complete systems, you will find in our store everything you need to upgrade or replace worn parts of your bike.

Different bikes, different braking systems

There are currently two dominant braking systems on the bicycle market. On the one hand, there is the classic rim brake. This brakes the bike via brake shoes that are pressed against the brake flank of the wheels via a Bowden cable. This system is primarily used on road bikes, where the overall system saves weight compared to disc brake systems. Disc brakes, on the other hand, are now on the rise in all areas. While they are already standard on mountain bikes, more and more road bike manufacturers are also relying on the combination of brake pads and discs. Disc brake systems can be operated either hydraulically or mechanically. While the hydraulic variant is of higher quality and achieves better braking performance, mechanical systems are easier to maintain.

This is how disc brakes work

The disc brake works quite simply and is known from various motor vehicles. As soon as you operate the brake lever on your bike, a brake piston presses the brake pads onto the brake disc mounted on the wheel. Similar to the rim brake, the energy of the forward movement is thus converted into heat by friction and the bike slows down. Due to the special design of the brake discs via holes and bulges, the heat generated is dissipated over as large a surface as possible. The following applies: The larger the diameter of the brake disc, the greater the braking power.

What is the difference between hydraulic and mechanical systems?

Not all braking systems are the same, even though hydraulic and mechanical systems use discs. While hydraulic oil is used to transmit the braking impulse from the brake lever to the brake in hydraulic systems, Bowden cables are responsible for building up the braking pressure in mechanical systems. Due to the transmission of braking pressure by means of hydraulic oil, hydraulic brakes are easier to dose during the braking process than mechanical brakes. However, special tools are usually required for repair and maintenance..

Where are the advantages of disc and rim brakes?

Especially in the road bike sector, disc and rim brake systems fight for supremacy. However, both systems have their advantages and disadvantages, regardless of their area of application on road bikes, mountain bikes or trekking bikes. The advantage of high-quality disc brakes lies in their significantly increased braking power. Especially in wet conditions, they are clearly superior to rim brakes, since here no brake flanks must first be carefully freed from water. In addition, only the brake discs and brake pads wear out here. The brake flank or the wheel remains completely unaffected. This is particularly attractive for expensive wheels, whose service life is thus massively extended.
 
The braking performance of the rim brake, on the other hand, depends on the quality and condition of the brake flank. Rim brakes, on the other hand, are very easy to maintain, so that any amateur mechanic can change brake pads and brake bodies without special tools. State-of-the-art rim brake systems also weigh significantly less than comparable disc brake systems. However, this fact is only of actual relevance in racing, when it comes to saving the last few grams of weight and replacing defective wheels as quickly as possible.
