Trek Session Integrated Floating Brake

8/23/2006 : sicklines

Brake Therapy has been working with manufactures to integrate floating brakes for bikes out of the box. Brian posted this on a few forums about what they’re doing with the manufacturer. For those that don’t know what a floating brake does, it essentially allows for the braking forces to not interfere with the suspension. This allows for no brake jack or brake squat. Some designs (single pivots) are more susceptible to brake jack/squat than other designs (some virtual pivot points).
How does this help you? It allows your bike to track the terrain better as well as allowing your bike full suspension movement during heavy braking. Brake Therapy has been around making floating disc brakes for awhile now but they are now working with the manufacturers to provide better compatibility to the users. This means more compatibility as they don’t have to mess with hub dimension and the floater can stay attached to the bike when the wheel is removed.
