eSTOP brakes win "Best of 2021" Award
3 Parts – One Perfect System
According to this topic, this year's award from the german-language magazine went to the eSTOP brakes and rotors. Maximum performance is offered by the eSTOP brake models of the MT4 and MT5 in combination with the optimized rotors and the SPORT brake pad. This ensures increased braking power and better stability when using e-bikes.
The associated rotors MDR-P and MDR-C are available in diameters 160mm, 180mm, 203 and 220mm (MDR-P). So there is the right rotor for every riding style.
