The Juin tech R1 hydraulic cable pull cyclocross (CX) disc brake set offers a unique solution to the cyclocross (CX) rider wanting to upgrade from mechanical cable pull disc brakes. Also recommend for road use.
The brake pads operate by a cable actuated closed hydraulic mineral oil system. This allows the cyclocross/road rider to use thier normal sti/ergo levers on a disc brake bike without the expense of upgrading everything to accomdate disc brakes. Braking performance is enhanced over a mechanical disc brake with easy pad and cable adjustment. The pistons actuate in a parrallel motion unlike the one sided movement of a mechanical disc brake and at approx. 142grams per caliper they offer a substantial weight saving.
We have tested these brakes in the 3 Peaks Cyclocross race, outstanding braking performance and stopping power. These brakes were put through their paces on some of the most gruelling decents you would every try to ride a cross bike down. The Juin Tech R1 Disc Brake Set comes complete with the following: 2 x Hydraulic cable actuated post mount disc calipers, inc pads. 2 x Postmount adapters 4 x Postmount bolts & washers - long 4 x Postmount bolts - short 2 x 160mm Stainless Steel Rotors (6 Bolt IS) 12 x torq screws to mount rotors Weight: 142grams per caliper approx
Replacement pads for these calipers are RWD Shimano R010. After extensive testing we recommend organic replacement pads.
