BFO BRAKEFORCEONE disc brake BFO H2O 2-finger set
The BFO-H2O is the first brake that is operated with simple water instead of a conventional brake medium. In addition to the uncomplicated handling and availability, water offers the great advantage of better thermal conductivity and heat capacity. This means that water absorbs heat faster, but also releases it faster. Overheating of the brake is almost impossible. The poorer compressibility of water also has another positive side effect, the pressure point is much richer than that of the previous model with hydraulic oil.
Thanks to the brake booster, which can be adjusted by 360 ° and is integrated into the connection of the brake caliper, significantly less manual effort is required when braking. The revised forged brake caliper is now twice as stiff as its predecessor and therefore also offers a more defined pressure point and better meterability.
Another innovation is the adjustment of the brake lines. These are pulled out of their seat by light pressure on the cuff ring, simply cut to the desired length and secured again with the integrated plug-in bayonet. By reducing the diameter of the line to 4 mm, not only was weight saved, but narrower radii are also possible when laying.
To perfectly match the brake to your bike, the brake caliper cover and the brake handle are available in 4 different colors.
