Campagnolo H11 disc brakes Review


One of the components that come with a well-functioning bicycle is the brakes. Brakes are essential and useful because of the safety that it helps riders have, avoiding accidents and giving them the full control of the bike.

The methodology of a brake is quite simple, in the sense that the way it works is by applying pressure to the wheels; this pressure that is applied enables the bike to come gradually to a stop as the applicant wishes. Most brakes used in bicycles have three mechanisms that they work with; the way it is distributed helps it attain or perform at maximum operation. The first mechanism is where the rider gets to apply the brake, which could be a brake lever or pedal. The second mechanism is the part that allows for the transmission of the brake signal from the pedal or the brake lever to the third mechanism or component, the way the motion is passed is usually through a cable. The third mechanism is the brake caliper which generally works by holding two or more surfaces together.

Three types of brakes are more dominant or frequently used in production: the rim brakes, the drum brakes, and the disc brakes. These three are the main types of brakes that we have out there.
