Brake discs - the most important component of the disc brake
Disc brakes provide a particularly high safety factor on modern bicycles. The perfect dosing behavior and high braking power make disc brakes the most reliable brakes for your bike.
A basic component of this type of brake is the brake disc. If it wears out, has a blow or is too small for the intended purpose, it often requires a new one. In our shop you are guaranteed to find the right brake disc for your disc brake system. The discs are also available in different sizes from different manufacturers such as Avid, Shimano, Hope or Magura. When buying a new brake disc is to pay attention to what diameter and which circle of holes the disc needs. Depending on the manufacturer and field of application, these dimensions vary. At Dirt Bikes rather small brake discs are used because the braking power here does not have to be so high. In this discipline often only short braking maneuvers take place, thus rarely takes place overheating. In the downhill and trail area, however, larger discs are in demand. Especially when it comes to alpine terrain, your disc brake needs a large diameter, so that it can take longer powerful. With a larger brake disc, the heat generated during friction during braking is distributed over a larger area, and the larger discs are often better ventilated. For the different sizes of brake discs, the caliper needs the right adapter.
The matching brake discs in different colors and sizes can be found in our webshop. In the category Disc Brake Adapter also the suitable adapters for your disc brake are available.
