Juin Tech R1 Cable Actuated Hydraulic Road Disc Brake (2-Piston)
Juin Tech R1 Hydraulic Cable Pull Disc Brake Set - Cyclocross or Road
The Juin tech R1 hydraulic cable pull cyclocross (CX) disc brake set (front and rear brakes) offers a unique solution to the cyclocross (CX) riders who want 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 riders to use their normal STI/Ergo levers on a disc brake bike without the expense of upgrading everything to accommodate disc brakes.
Braking performance is enhanced over a mechanical disc brake 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 caliper they offer a substantial weight saving.
Juin Tech has 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 grueling descents you would every try to ride a cross bike down.
