This TRP Parabox R Road/CX Hydraulic Disc Brake Kit is no longer available although you may find similar or newer versions below:
Parabox R hydraulic disc brakes for cyclocross and road bikes offers a slimmer 5mm clamp to allow for lower stack height and angled bracket for negative degree stems and with slimmed down calipers for weight reduction but with out the loss of power.
The Parabox master cylinder converts cable actuation of standard road brake levers into hydraulic braking power with inline barrel adjusters allow for on-the-fly brake adjustment. The Parabox R has its own proprietary calipers that have been slimmed down for weight saving but still pack huge 21mm pistons for the power and control you need for any situation.
The system comes complete with pre-bled lines and 160mm rotors (140mm available) post mount to IS adapters and all mounting hardware.
Bicycle disc brakes consist of a metal disc attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Brake calipers are attached to the frame or fork along with pads that squeeze together on the disc. The way it is attached to the bike will be either by IS (International Standard) which has two holes facing the disc or Post Mount, which has threads going into the fork. Disc brakes have been successfully used on motorbikes for decades, and are the principal choice there. The primary benefit of disc brakes is that they perform equally well in all conditions including water, mud and snow. This is due to their position closer to the hub and away from the ground and possible contaminants like water, which can coat and freeze on the rim in colder temperatures. The pads are usually made from metal sinters or an organic compound instead of rubber. Water acts as a lubricant to rubber but not metal, therefore disc brakes maintain their stopping power in wet conditions. They also avoid the problem that rim brakes have of wearing out the wheel rims, especially in muddy conditions, as well as the requirement that the rim be straight. Disc brakes offer improved modulation of braking power and generally require less finger effort to achieve the same braking power. The advantages of discs make them well-suited to steep, extended downhills through wet and muddy off-road terrain, common in freeride bicycle riding.
TRP was founded on the idea of building the highest quality braking systems available in the bicycle industry. TRP Brakes are designed for superior levels of performance and durability achieved through the use of advanced production techniques, accurate processing and meticulous quality control. By using exotic materials such as Carbon Fibre, Titanium and TT6 Aluminum, TRP brakes set a new industry standard for lightweight and precise control. TRP brakes are extensively tested for reliability and safety on and off-road, and in the laboratory - by a company with more than 20 years experience designing and manufacturing bicycle brake systems.
