QUALITY AND COMPATIBILITIES
LESS BRAKES arises from the association of a group of professionals from diverse areas related to professional cycling/biking with a wide experience in the development of specific products for very well established brands worldwide.
From the beginning our main goal has been to elaborate top quality products, that’s why we have been working hard, researching and developing the best components to achieve our final products. Our Resins, Kevlar and Copper fibers are provided by the best manufacturers in the world, including countries like USA, Germany and Japan.
LESS BRAKES manufactures pads compatible with the main brands in the market. If you choose LESS BRAKES, you choose quality.
THE RIGHT COMPOUND
In order to choose the right brake pad compound, it is of vital importance to be fully aware of the performance of each of the compounds, to determine the discipline in which it will be used and to know the basic parameters for measuring its real behaviour and performance.
The rider must be aware that there is no ideal and general brake pad for use in all conditions. Each compound has been developed to offer the best possible functions in each of the specific fields in which cycling is currently practised.
There are very clear differences in the performance of each compound. Each has a specific function, with its pros and cons, so selection criteria must not simply be focused on the functions that it offers, but also on other important aspects, such as wear and the convenience of use of the brakes.
MAIN PARAMETERS TO DETERMINE
BRAKE PAD PERFORMANCE.
To make a well-advised decision on the brake pad compound required, it is vital to base the decision on a series of parameters that characterise braking capacity.
Broadly speaking, this can be summarised in two main aspects: EFFICIENCY and WEAR.
EFFICIENCY is measured through the friction coefficient offered by the compound (braking power), the characteristics of this friction (progressiveness) and its stability depending on important factors such as temperature and humidity.
WEAR is determined according to the amount of friction material consumed when braking, both of the brake pads and of the brake discs.
– Braking power or friction coefficient.
– Progressiveness or modulation.
– Optimal temperature range.
– Performance in wet and muddy conditions.
– Wear of the brake pad.
– Wear of the brake disc.
– The run-in period required.
With this compound we offer the possibility of buying high-performance pads at competitive price. We have combined all the advantages of our organic base compound with a touch of abrasiveness.
With our sintered compound we intend to give the opportunity to obtain a much more direct and reactive feel in the brake lever, generating a very high braking power. It offers very good performance in wet and muddy conditions.
Unlike the sintered compound, our ceramic compound offers a modulable feel at the lever brake, generating very progressive and stable braking. Very quiet and low-abrasive brake pads for brake discs.
