Juin Tech R1 Hydraulic Cable Pull Disc Brake Set - Cyclocross or Road
The Juin tech R1 hydraulic cable pull cyclocross (CX) disc brake set offers a unique solution to the cyclocross (CX) rider wanting 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 rider to use thier normal sti/ergo levers on a disc brake bike without the expense of upgrading everything to accomdate disc brakes.
Braking performance is enhanced over a mechanical disc brake with easy pad and cable adjustment. The pistons actuate in a parrallel motion unlike the one sided movement of a mechanical disc brake and at approx. 142grams per caliper they offer a substantial weight saving.
We have 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 gruelling decents you would every try to ride a cross bike down.
The Juin Tech R1 Disc Brake Set comes complete with the following:
- 2 x Hydraulic cable actuated post mount disc calipers, inc pads
- 2 x Postmount adapters
- 4 x Postmount bolts & washers - long
- 4 x Postmount bolts - short
- 2 x 160mm Stainless Steel Rotors (6 Bolt IS)
- 12 x torq screws to mount rotors
- Weight: 142grams per caliper approx
Replacement pads for these calipers are RWD Shimano R010
. After extensive testing we recommend organic replacement pads.
I fitted and rode the juin tech brakes to a cross-style bike at the weekend. Initial impressions are that they are very easy to setup. It was the first ride on the bike so there was a lot of fettling going on and always hard to get a good overall view of the performance. They started off ok, but when they bedded in started to get very good. I took the slack out of the cable when I got back and they seem very firm now - I dislike some disc brakes that allow the levers right onto the bars, crushing the fingers.
