DISC BRAKES & THRU-AXLES
Disc brakes are the new standard for drop-handlebar bikes in all riding conditions. They provide more stopping power, greater modulation, and more consistent performance than rim brakes, especially when the weather turns nasty. Our latest collection of drop-bar bikes utilize the Flat Mount disc brake standard for the best in performance and security, as well as clean aesthetics. Complementing the bikes' disc brakes are 12mm thru-axles, which provide a more secure interface over traditional quick-release skewers, along with better stiffness for quicker acceleration, better handling, and crisper shifting.
