Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Knott Brake offers hydraulic discs brakes that feature a closed system of reservoirs that hold hydraulic fluid and operate the brakes. These hydraulic calipers range anywhere from 2 to 6 pistons. These are available in either fixed or floating configurations. A plunger pushes the fluid through the hoses, when the lever is activated. This, in turn, enters the caliper which pushes the brake pads onto the rotor, gripping it, stopping the wheel.
