Gatorbrake Eight Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes with Carbon Fiber Rotors
…oh, and two brakes for the front wheel.
Yep, I’m thinking Gatorbrake takes the cake for the most over-the-top component I saw at Eurobike. While the man at the booth (as best I could tell) said the carbon rotors are both durable and for sale, they’re not shown on their website’s store. They do have some nice looking metal rotors there, though, which aren’t too expensive in Euros.
Let off the brakes and roll past the break for more insanity…
Moto style, no less. The splitter pushes fluid to both front brakes…which means they must have an oversized master cylinder and plunger in the lever.
Mmmmm… carbon. F1 does it, why shouldn’t mountain bikes. If you believe the forums, that’s what our DH races will look like in a few years anyway.
Count ‘em: Eight pistons. It’s tempting, but our heart’s set on a perfect 10…
