choppers n cruisers dont go into turns that hot
hence why the SB's always passing them, and some doing it rather stupidly I might add.
Not to get back on the whole rear brake thing, but:
"· Instead of lifting all the weight off the back tire, due to the shift of bike weight common in current braking systems, the 360 Brake creates more down force and keeps better traction on the road. (In the typical brake set-up, the position of the caliper and distance from the axle center of rotation actually creates a “lever arm” affect that causes the feeling of being catapulted over the handle bars when the brakes are applied quickly, as in a panic stop.)
o Instead of the typical 80-20, or 90-10 braking, our brake is more like 60-40 front- to-rear, because of this dramatically reduced weight shift.
o This also allows you to brake harder with the rear brake and still maintain contact with the road, with less skidding.
o This is proven with a rider on the back of the bike. Just by tapping a conventional brake you slam the passenger into you and can lose control of the bike just from that force. While braking with our brake the passenger will slide forward, butt first, and not slam into your shoulders and arms keeping you in better control of the bike.
· This braking system brakes much smoother and a lot less violently than the standard rotor and caliper systems.
o It has been described as, “Braking into a cloud.” "
What a load of crap. The force is applied at the contact patch no matter what tries to slow the wheel. These guys need a physics lesson.
The only cloud they'll be braking into is the one with the big white light at the end.
If it ain't violent, you ain't stopping.
