Juin Tech F1 Hydraulic Cable Pull Disc Brake Set - Flat mount
These superlight disc brakes are perfect for junior riders! The only real downside of disc brakes is their weight, so selecting a lightweight set is important.
Its not just about weight. Yes, these are some of the lightest disc brakes available (designed for adults) but they're also a closed hydraulic circuit design, providing hydraulic power where it's needed at the pistons, but cable actuated, so they can still be used with short-reach shifters needed by children. That's important as many full hydraulic systems can provide too much stopping power for low rider weights, using larger, more difficult shifters with hydraulic reservoirs.
The Juin tech F1 hydraulic cable pull flat mount disc brake set offers a unique solution to the road/gravel/cyclocross (CX) rider wanting to upgrade from mechanical cable pull disc brakes. The F1 is the latest addition to the Juin Tech stable, sold as a pair including mounting bolts and rotors
The brake pads operate by a cable actuated closed hydraulic mineral oil system. This allows you to use your normal sti/ergo levers on a disc brake bike without the expense of upgrading everything to accommodate a full hydraulic set up.
Braking performance is enhanced over a mechanical disc brakes with easy pad and cable adjustment. The pistons actuate in a parallel motion unlike the one sided movement of a mechanical disc brake and at approx. 142grams per calliper they offer a substantial weight saving.
We have tested the R1 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 descents you would ever try to ride a cross bike down.
