Hayes Ball and Ramp Disc Brake at Press Camp 12


Never met a mechanical disc brake I’ve liked or thought worked well, until maybe now. Hayes Components insists their ball and ramp system works the best and patented them in 06.

After manufactured a batch, they sat on them for a few years until the UCI approved discs for Cross. They’re shipping now with an MSRP of $70.00. Ridley is spec’ing them on 3 bikes this year with more expected soon from other manufacturers.

We’ll have them on test soon with a follow-up post.


Is that a Ridley with a Yeti-style arc?

It is. The X- Fire.
