Tecktro Disc Brake System

0 review(s)

The Tektro MD-M300 system is one of the best out there. It is a mechanical disc brake system that's designed for high speeds.  It was the clear choice when developing the Tower Beach Bum electric bike, and a preferred configuration for many eBike enthusiasts. 

Key Features: 

  • Long lasting pads with wear indicators
  • Ball and ramp actuation system
  • Floating plates for automatic rotor angle adjustment
  • Designed for optimal strength and heat dissipation

Description

Strength and heat dissipation. Disc brake manufactures have always been in a constant balance battle between strength and heat dissipation qualities. Basic rules of friction imply that if you create a strong braking system, it's going to get hot! Fortunately, the engineers at Tektro have developed materials that provide significant friction and brake power without absorbing heat. Warning- although the brake pads are engineered to dissipate heat, the brake rotor can still get extremely hot during use. Contact with a hot disc rotor can cause serious injury, so it's best to stay clear of the brakes immediately after riding.

Friction reducing actuation system. The brake calipers in this Aeries system utilize a ball ramp mechanism. This means that the brake pads on this system are on floating pads so they can automatically and consistently adjust to the rotor angle during braking. This system provides efficient and even braking to optimize the lifespan of the brake pads.

Long lasting pads with wear indicators. The pads included in this brake system are 2mm thick. They are made from a specially engineered organic resin compound that is extremely resistant to wear. The longevity of the brake pads differs based on riding speeds and conditions, but generally these brake pads can be expected to last over 1000mi. Fortunately, it's easy to tell when they are ready to be replaced. Once the thickness of the pad is reduced to .5mm thick, a small circle will appear in the corner of the pad.

Replacing the brake pads. When it does come time to replace your brake pads, don't worry, it can be done in a few simple steps:

  • Remove the adapter and mounting bolts to detach the brake caliper from the frame
  • Bend down and remove the retention pin
  • Push out the pads and remove them from the the spacer spring
  • Install the new pads without touching the pad material (grease from your fingers can significantly reduce the performance of the brakes)
  • Slide the pads back into the caliper and secure them using a new retention pin
  • Re-attach the caliper to the frame using the mounting bolts
