Brakes like Formula One -hard, safe, reliable. This requires a rigid caliper and excellent brake pads, but also a suitable medium for lossless power transmission from the lever in the caliper.
Trickstuff was of FERODO, the world's leading manufacturer of brake components for racing cars and racing motorcycles, exclusively charged with the distribution of unique Super Formula brake fluid and also takes over the technical advice.
Although this fluid was originally developed for motor racing, it is particularly suitable especially for use in the bicycle - no other braking system makes higher demands on the brake because the brake calipers and brake discs of bikes are extremely light and thus have a relatively low heat capacity. This increases the risk of vapor lock and the spontaneous loss tremendously.
Super Formula is the brake fluid with the highest boiling point of all brake fluids of all: 330th
No other liquid reaches this value even close.
(Mineral oil: 180C, DOT 4: 230C, DOT 5.1: 260C)
Super Formula is extremely fluid and compression stable, which reduces the manual force required to achieve a specific brake pressure noticeably improves the controllability of the brake system (leaner hysteresis).
It is fully compatible with DOT 4 and DOT 5.1. Low residue from the previous fluid in the system do not affect the excellent properties of Super Formula.
Boiling point: 330 degrees Celsius
- Maximum compressive strength
- Extremely low viscosity
- Fully compatible with DOT 4 and DOT 5.1
