Brake Juice is a high performance, fast drying, disc brake cleaner, designed for - surprisingly enough – cleaning your disc brake pads and rotors!
Over time contaminants build up on your pads and rotors that reduce the friction between them. This can happen quite quickly to the point you notice straight away or more likely it happens over time and you don’t notice it much as the incremental difference on each ride is less. Regardless, you are either having to pull harder on the brake lever to achieve the same stopping power or you are braking earlier and for longer to slow down in time for your next obstacle – neither of which is an ideal situation! A quick blast of Brake Juice will restore sharpness to your brakes in no time, meaning later, harder braking for the same finger effort (which can in turn reduce arm pump) and quicker times.
Brake Juice has a chlorine-free formulation that will not do any of the following:
Contaminate the pads and reduce their friction with the discs.
Cause that incredibly annoying ongoing squeaky brake syndrome which immediately gives it away to your mates when you brake on the easy bits that apparently no one else does. Been there, done that, taken the s*** for it…..
Harm the plastic, rubber or paintwork on your bike.
Leave a residue
Spray directly on to callipers, pads and rotors and let it do it’s thing. Brake Juice dries quickly, with no residue so there is no need to wipe anything off. Initial performance does differ between pad compounds and different brands. Generally we have found that the Brake Juice evaporates more quickly from semi metallic and sintered pads than it does from organic pads. So if you do use organic pads you may experience a short period of brake squeak but this will quickly stop.
Always remember to check your pads for wear – Brake Juice won’t do a lot if you are down to the back plate! Also it is worth checking you have exactly the right size mount for the rotors you are using – we have seen people caught out on several occasions where a mount has been slightly too big and bridging has occurred. This is where the top of the pad never comes into contact with the rotor, so it never wears down and creates a lip that makes it appear as though you have plenty of pad life left. Then all of a sudden the brake lever goes back to the bars and you can’t stop because the rest of the pad that you can’t see without turning the bike over, is worn right down!
