Interbike 2010: Prototype Hydraulic Commuter Bike Disc Brakes from Hayes

Not a lot of details were given to us on these, but anytime we see a black gun case being pulled out from behind someone’s booth, we run…to our camera.  In this case (pun intended), Hayes’ brakes product manager Joel Richardson had some prototype-but-very-polished-looking new hydraulic disc brakes aimed at the commuter market.  The calipers weren’t much bigger looking than their Stroker Gram brakes, and the lever body was pretty slim, too.  Should give OEM buyers a nice option when they’re out, and currently they only plan to launch them as an OEM option at some undisclosed future point.
