The BFO-H2O is the first brake which is operated instead of a conventional brake medium with plain water. Water offers the easy handling and the availability of the great advantage of better thermal conductivity and Wärmekapaizität. So, although the water will quickly heat up, but they are also faster again. Overheating of the brake is therefore almost impossible. The poorer compressibility of water has another positive side effect, the pressure point is much richer than the previous model with hydraulic oil. Thanks to the adjustable through 360 ° and integrated into the connection of the caliper brake booster, it requires much less manual force during braking. The revised forged caliper is now twice as stiff as its predecessor, thus offering an additional deffinierteren pressure point and increased control. Another innovation is the adaptation of the brake lines. These are drawn by slight pressure on the cuff ring from its seat, simply cut to the desired length and secured again with the bayonet integrated plug. By a considerable decrease of the diameter of the line to 4 mm, not only weight was saved but also tighter radii during installation are possible.
To adjust the brake optically perfectly to your bike, there is the brake caliper cover and the brake handle in 4 different color variations.
