Disc RS delivers powerful braking and precisely balances the performance characteristics important to racers and everyday riders alike. Disc RS provides extremely quiet operation in all environments - wet, dry, snow and ice the compound is noiseless.
At 1.6mm thick the steel backplate saves weight over standard designs, yet provides the preferred thermal characteristics, strength and stability of steel. Reduced thickness backplate is offset with additional friction material, providing longer pad service life.

ATTENTION: PADS MUST BE BEDDED IN TO ACHIEVE OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE
Step 1. On a gradual downhill slope, drag each brake for 20-30 seconds, alternating between front and rear. Repeat 2-3 times.
Step 2. On a steeper slope, engage and drag the brakes for 10-15 seconds then increase lever pressure until the bike slows almost to a complete stop. Repeat 2-3 times.
Pro Tip: The front pads will have been heated more than the rear. To achieve optimal performance, exchange the front and rear pads then repeat Step 2.
CAUTION before replacing or changing brake pads it is essential to let all parts cool.
