Everyone likes to talk about e-bikes motors, but powerful and easily controllable brakes are just as important. To maintain control on the e-bike, even in borderline situations, every bit of extra braking power and control can make a difference – especially if you're riding fast with e-assist. Hydraulic and mechanical disc brakes are the clear favourites due to their high braking performance with minimal effort. Powerful mountain bike brakes with large brake discs are often chosen for maximum safety reserves. E-bike pads are specially designed to work under e-bike conditions and will last longer than regular pads. A good braking system can only perform well when all the brake components are in perfect condition.
