TRP DH-R EVO Brakes

The question we asked ourselves was how do we adapt our braking performance and power to the new standard of World-Cup level downhill racing?

No stone was left untouched and the result at the end of the season was a completely re-designed DH-R: the new DH-R EVO. New ergonomic lever-blade, newly formulated brake pad compounds, new high-performance hydraulic oil, new 5 mm brake hose-system, newly designed and CNC-machined adapters, new selection of 2.3 rotors, newly designed oil flow inside the calipers, new hydraulic leverage ratio, and a smaller size master cylinder piston lift the overall performance of the DH-R EVO to this new standard of racing.

“100 RACE DAYS LATER”

The question we asked ourselves was how do we adapt our brake performance and power to the new standard of World-Cup level downhill racing as quickly as possible? No stone was left untouched and the result at the end of the season was a completely re-designed DH-R: the new DH-R EVO. New ergonomic lever-blade, newly formulated brake pad compounds, new high-performance hydraulic oil, new 5 mm brake hose-system, newly designed and CNC-machined adapters, new selection of 2.3 rotors, newly designed oil flow inside the calipers, new hydraulic leverage ratio, and a smaller size master cylinder piston lift the overall performance of the DH-R EVO to this new standard of racing.

These features were approved by Scott DH Factory rider Brendan Fairclough during his 4th place run at Rampage in Utah. Read the Full-Story Here…
