Disc Brakes are commonplace on modern mountain bikes & trail bikes, as well as on growing number of today's endurance road bikes, as they overcome many of the pitfalls of traditional rim brakes
, offering incredible stopping power in all conditions. Disc Brakes are split into two main types, hydraulic & mechanical, and boast a number of advantages over alternative braking options. A few of the main advantages of disc brakes are; not being affected by wet weather or risk being clogged by mud, and also not wearing down your rims; whilst most hydraulic disc brakes are self-adjusting to promote reliable and confident braking. Westbrook Cycles stocks both mechanical & hydraulic disc brake sets, alongside premium disc brake rotors, as well as a choice of disc brake pads
with a variety of compound materials to suit your riding style.
