The Juin tech R1 hydraulic cable pull road disc brake set offers a proven solution to the rider wanting to upgrade from mechanical cable pull disc brakes. With over 4 years on the market the Juin Tech R1 is proving to be a serious contender to full hydraulic brakes. We, Edge Sports UK, are the appointed distributor for UK, EU and rest of the world (excluding Asia) for Juin Tech braking products.
The brake pads operate by a cable actuated closed hydraulic mineral oil system. This allows the rider to use their normal sti/ergo or flat bar levers on a disc brake bike without the expense of upgrading everything to a full hydraulic system.
Braking performance is enhanced over a mechanical disc brake and the caliper has easy pad and cable adjustment. The pistons actuate in a parallel motion unlike the one sided movement of a mechanical disc brake and at approx. 142grams per calliper they offer a substantial weight saving.
We have tested these brakes in the 3 Peaks Cyclocross race, outstanding braking performance and stopping power. The brakes were put through their paces on some of the most gruelling descents you would every try to ride a cyclocross bike.
