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 fibres are provided by the best manufactures in the world, including countries like USA, Germany and Japan.
LESS BRAKES manufactures pads compatible with the main brnads in the market. If you choose LESS BRAKES, you choose quality.
Our sintered compound has only one objective: provide maximum braking power at any temperature and at any level of humidity. Whether in wet or dry conditions, you can abuse the brakes as much as you want without fear of losing efficiency or brake feel. This is your best option if you don´t want any unpleasant surprises in technical circuits or in steep downhill and enduro events.
This is our all-terrain compound. The brake pads feel highly reactive and powerful even at low temperatures, and they considerably increase the durability of the brake discs. You won´t get any unpleasant surprises when you hit the brakes on your bike.
Long-lasting brake pads that are very quiet, super progressive and great durability. Our ceramic compound guarantees highly progressive and consistent braking over a wide operating temperature range. This compound limits heat transfer to the brake callipers, wich prevents excessive heating of the brake fluid and the resulting uneven brake feel when squeezing the brake later.
It is one of the most important points to keep in mind when changing our brake pads. You have to clean the discs with specific products, they are usually alcohol-based products, to clean the grease or oil residues and make sure that the new brake pads are not contaminated in their first use.
We will avoid touching with the fingers the area of the pad that supports against the disc, we will also verify that there are no residues, cracks or blows in the area to avoid a malfunction of the braking system.
One our brake pads are installed, we will look for a wide place that allows us to make the first brakes smoothly and progressively, making sure that everything nas been done correctly in the assembly. Later we will go to another area with a small descent, where we will begin to slow down progressively, we will increase the speed a bit and keep the brake at medium pressure for 7 or 8 seconds, then we will apply the brake to the maximum and repeat this process 5 or 6 sometimes, in this way we will get the pads to start adapting to the disk.
Once the initial shooting has been done correctly, the brake response will not be 100% correct, we will need a few hours of normal use so that the pads adapt parfectly to the brake disc, work at maximum power and braking quality.
