The CNC-milled elements of this ultra-lightweight cartridge brake shoe allow for an attractive weight and also set visual accents. The brake rubber is made of a 'compound' mix, a mixture of soft natural rubber and hard, abrasion-resistant and heat-resistant synthetic rubber, thus achieving optimum braking performance and excellent all-weather properties..
|Scope of supply||2 Pairs|
|Additional information||Cartridge brake shoes are called two-piece brake shoes, where its possible to change the brake pads after abrasion. The advantage over usual brake pads is that only the brake pads has to be changed as wear parts, and the brake shoes do not have to be readjusted. Only the brake cable tension might have to be reduced if the old pad was already thin because of the wear. |
CNC is an accurate, computer-controlled milling process (Computerized Numerical Control) and allows the manefacturing of complex and elaborate workpieces from a block. The manufacturing tolerances are thereby reduced to a minimum.
Light add-on parts play an ever-growing part in bike technology. In the wake of this trend, XLC parts and accessories which are marked with the XLC lightweight icon are weight optimised in development and manufacturing wherever possible, without affecting the functioning and safety. A lightweight bike has got many advantages. It accelerates better, brakes more safely and is easier to handle in general. Moreover, less weight makes transport by bus and train easier.
