A small innovation in the system sometimes creates a big change – The new standard of 2.3mm thick rotors up to 223 mm in size has created a hydraulic disc brake with focus on performance E-Bikes and at the same time has given all downhill racers and gravity riders a new tool for breaking limits. We couldn’t be more proud to receive this years Pinkbike nomination for Component of the Year along with a Bikerumor 2020 Editor’s Choice Award for the DH-R EVO Brakes. The TRP R&D Team poured in countless hour of development using advanced testing equipment and some of the top athletes in the sport. Their hard work has paid off and the results are speaking for themselves 👇
“TRP’s DH-R EVO brake is a prime example of a component designed for the higher demands of motorized use also making sense on pedal-powered bikes.
The four-piston stoppers use a rotor that’s 2.3mm thick – normal rotors are 1.8mm – that TRP says offers a 47-percent increase in torsional stiffness and, more importantly, an 8-percent increase in cooling. More consistent system temperatures during hard use mean a more consistent brake feel, of course. The caliper slot is a bit wider to accept the new rotor, and they’ve also made changes to the lever body piston size to increase power. All that adds up to some impressive performance that makes TRP a serious alternative to the more common brands on the market.” – Mike Levy, Pinkbike
