The brakes are probably the most important part of your bicycle! Being able to stop in good time and safely is just as important as going fast. A set of quality bike brakes will increase your confidence on your road, cross or mountain bike, especially whilst descending.
Most road bike systems, such as the best-selling Shimano 105 brakes, make use of a standard caliper brake, but bikes like our Ribble Aero 883 use Direct-Mount systems. Also becoming increasingly popular are disc brakes which offer stronger braking performance, especially in wet conditions. Discs are becoming more popular as road bike brakes after proving their advantage in the off-road world of mountain biking.
