+ Difference between sintered and semi-metallic disc pads
SINTERED - Great for DH/Freeride/Enduro
SEMI-METAL - Great for XC/Trail/Urban
+ Differences of the Fibrax Rim pads
Fibrax Black is the ideal pad for everday use. Black provides a hard wearing, rim friendly surface with excellent modulation in both wet and dry conditions.
Fibrax Red is a softer compound than Black, resulting in improved braking power leading to a slightly shorter life with reduced modulation.
Fibrax Xtreme is perfect for wet and wintery conditions. Our unique formula ensures a hardwearing pad that provides excellent braking and modulation when you need it most.
Fibrax Green has been specially formulated for braking on ceramic rims to provide superior performance under all conditions.
Fibrax Grey is the ultimate pad for Carbon rims offering excellent stopping power both wet and dry.
+ Cable specifications
These cables are hot dip galvanised for superior corrosion resistance and pre-stretched for consistent, predictable performance.
Fibrax stainless steel cables offer superior strength and corrosion resistance for a virtually maintenance free cabling solution.
PTFE has one of the lowest coefficient of friction of any known material. Our range of PTFE coated cables are durable and virtually friction free.
DIE DRAWN SLICK
The ultimate cable in our range. Taking the already good stainless wire we pass it through dies and under a layer of oil. This pulls its outer strands flat, significantly reducing friction without need for extra coating. The main benefits are:
+ Hydraulic hose
FIBRAFLEX STAINLESS STEEL BRAIDED HYDRAULIC HOSE
+ 2p brake cable housing
Fibrax Brake 2P Cable Housing utilises a hard wearing, low friction, waterproof inner liner while a close coiled shell ensures low compression and excellent protection for your cables. A hard wearing polymer is used to protect the whole assembly, ensuring low maintenance and precise braking for years to come.
+ SP4 Gear Cable Housing
Fibrax Gear SP4 Cable Housing utilises the same hard wearing, low friction inner liner as our 2P Housing for precise control, while our helical shell construction with two-layer protection offers a strong, zero compression system while keeping overall weight to a minimum and improving weatherproofing and durability.
+ cable ends
Fibrax fit a wide selection of cable ends each designed to perfectly suit its application. Die cast from zinc, our cable ends offer a weatherproof fitting with a pull-off force which is in excess of the braking strain for the cable to which it is fitted. Common fittings are shown below to aid identification, if the fitting you need is not shown please contact your Fibrax distributor for a full list.
Important Note: Please be sure you read instructions and understand them fully before use. If you are unsure of the correct way to fit and maintain any parts on your bike, you will need to consult a qualified bicycle mechanic. We cannot accept responsibility for any failures due to incorrect fitting or maintenance.
