Alongside the popular oversized kits for improved brake effect EBC Brakes now offer the EBC Replacement Bicycle Discs, a high quality contoured lightweight hardened stainless steel brake rotor of industry standard size 160mm, (International Standard Fitting).
Hardened & Tempered
Many bikes from new have a bicycle disc that is a low cost item to keep the bike price down and is often marked with the words “Resin Pad only” which means it is normal factory rolled material and is NOT hardened and tempered and can only be used with standard trekking organic pads.
Not only are these new EBC replacement bicycle disc products HARDENED AND TEMPERED they are precision ground to be flat and parallel meaning you won’t get distortion, you wont get lever pulsing and won’t get DRAG.
If you see a brake disc any lower in price than EBC this is what you are very likely to be getting, a low cost unhardened piece of steel that will warp, wear out fast and drag. Good for your leg muscles and your workout though. On the other hand trust a brand name like EBC and buy this quality product.
EBC offer THREE pad choices for use with this and any disc:
Green TREKKING Formula for general urban and countryside riding
Red DOWNHILL Formula with higher friction and fade resistance
GOLD Ultra long life super grippy pads for longest life (not for downhill)
Most EBC pads are supplied with new UPRATED tension pull-back springs to refresh those tired old stock springs and help the pads “Free” from the disc/rotor when brake is real;eased reducing brake drag and enhancing free wheeling of your bike.
Engineered, manufactured & assembled in the UK
Apollo Series brake calipers are cast in UK, machined in the UK, painted in the UK and then assembled in the UK. Reinforcing the EBC philosophy of providing quality British made braking products yet at affordable prices.
With so many callipers in this segment of the market being bought in from far East, surely this is the ultimate testament to EBC’s devotion to quality. EBC are, and will always be a true champion of Great British engineering.
