This item consists of the Kill Hill front and rear brake.
Why does the market need a new brake? Are there not enough good brakes available? And what is better about these brakes?
Put simply: they have a better braking force to hand force ratio. And how do they do that? With a very simple, hydraulically modified gear ratio which allows us to install the brake pads with a real air gap - meaning that, finally, that annoying whistling sound is gone. The whole thing is built in a very solid and simple way. Thanks to the big air gap, no brake fluid reservoir is required. The result a robust and reliable brake. Practical feature: the mineral oil is available in different colors and because of the transparent brake hose, it is a nice eyecatcher. You can also directly detect air in the system.
The brake comes with black hose as standard. If you are interested in a transparent hose with colored mineral oil, please contact the Bike24 Service Team. The following colors are available: transparent, red, orange, yellow, green, blue and black.
The Kill Hill works with a completely new operating principle.
Thanks to the integrated brake booster, the braking process is divided into 2 phases. In the first, the master piston lifts the brake pads quickly on the disc. So it closes the big air gap with a short lever adjusting travel. If the pads rest on the disc, the brake booster interposes a hydraulic transmission. This ensures a powerful but dosed braking deceleration.
Advantages for the cyclist:
- more power
- no problems with grinding pads
- shorter adjusting travel
- very low hand forces (one finger is enough)
The brake is delivered filled and bled. Neither a disc/rotor nor an adaptor are included in delivery and have to be ordered separately.
