|Just what are BDop
AIR-BRAKES and why are they so darned awesome you
|First, BDop AIR-BRAKES
are a patented design that channel the natural flow
of air over the brake pads and holders created while riding
to reduce heat build up between the pad and rim.
|Heat build up is of particular
concern to riders using carbon clincher rims but it affects
alloy rims as well.
|Heat build up can cause delamination
on carbon rims (and rim failure) or brake fade on alloy rims
(and possible brake failure).
|But that's not all!
|BDop AIR-BRAKES feature
pads that are molded over a plastic skeleton. This allows
the air to flow inside a cavity created in the pad itself.
|The plastic skeleton also
creates a much stiffer pad and a better interface between
the pad and the holder which allows pads to fit better and
makes changing or replacing them much easier.
|This ultra stiff, co-molded
pad reduces the compression of the braking compound and gives
better and more responsive braking performance.
|The BDop AIR-BRAKE
pads have the same amount of material as standard
pads so brake pad life remains unchanged.
