This time we would like to talk about brakes, and in particular disc plates.

You often hear about floating discs, and we have them in our product range.
Let's start with what a floating disc is.

First of all, the word "floating" is a synonym for "rigid" in the case of brakes.
In the case of lure fishing, the synonym for floating is sinking,

In the case of floating discs, there are two objectives.
1) Thrust (axial) direction → left or right when viewed from the front of the bike, i.e. axle shaft direction.
The purpose is to prevent the caliper piston from moving in different directions.

2) Radial direction → radial direction of the disc when viewed from the side.
The purpose is to counter thermal expansion due to hard braking.

As a recent trend, 1) is disappearing.
It is well known that the replicas of the 80s and 90s, such as the NSR250R, had such a degree of floating that they could be moved by hand.
The reason why they are no longer used is because,
1) The disc moves in the thrust direction = concern about the piston opening → deteriorated lever touch.

In contrast, 2) is the current mainstream.
The inner and outer rotors are not physically fixed in the radial direction, but have an escape area.
This helps to cope with thermal expansion due to overheating of the disc plate caused by repetitive braking operations.
Needless to say, it is important that the caliper master cylinder is in good condition, even for this floating disc.
This floating disc is designed for the 4mini, but apart from these, it has a larger diameter to improve braking.

The recommended way to proceed as an 8Ft with brake customisation is,
(1) High performance brake pads
(2) Mesh hoses
(3) Large diameter floating discs
Radial pump master cylinder
⑤High performance caliper

When it comes to (5), you will want a front fork that is appropriate for it.
And corresponding high-grip tyres are also needed.

Customisation is also deep, and it is often said that you get stuck in a customisation swamp.
