DiaTech Anchor Disc Brake System

4/5 (4 Reviews)

Product Description

The Diatech disc brake sytem has been tested on many race circuits including the Norba and World Cup downhill tracks to ensure that it would perform under the toughest conditions. Not only did this brake perform, it out performed any other brake that the test riders had ever ridden before and that is saying something. With all the power of a four-piston brake only one finger braking required. No fade or pump up even on the longest of descents.

  • Two-pot open system that self-adjusts as the pads wear.
  • CNC machined two finger levers, calipers, hoses, wavy rotor and universal 'Hayes' type or I.S. mounting kits.
  • Available in black only

    Strengths:    Strong stopping power (SUPER STRONG STOPPING POWER). If you want to stop, press lightly!!!

    Weaknesses:    not enough regulation.

    Bottom Line:   
    The brakes would do well for trial bikes where you need to lightly touch the brakes and lock the wheels. Mounting it on XC and high speed bikes is quite of a learning curve.

    I learned it how to use the power, I love it, I'm keeping it and I'll recommend it.

    Brake pads work on several rotors without a hitch. Even the cheap ones will lock so be careful.
