Braking News


First casualty of spring riding season.This is the second Shimano ZEE caliper i have broken. They seem to last about 6 months and they have broken in the same place,


I gave these Clarks rotors a go. They worked ok/well. Pulsated at low speed. Cleared water and dirt just fine.Down side inconsistent manufacturing. Rotors measured less than 180mm and you can see from picture that different amounts of material has been removed from the rotors. These rotors pulsated really bad with single piston calipers i thought. Could use a little more surface area to reduce pulsing.


Like these Magura  Storm 180mm . I swapped these for the Clarks .After a couple of weeks of riding. multiple brake pad compounds they perform great. Good price. Dissipate heat well,

Kool Stop  pads for saint brakes. Great low temperature operation(they don’t need as much heat in the pads to work).Great power and modulation. I don’t recommend these for high speed prolonged braking. Great for trials.Be sure to bed in pads properly. They will last longer and work better.
