Anti-lock braking system for bicycles: Do you know how it works?

anti-lock braking system for mountain bike

Braking is perhaps one of the most frequently performed actions along a journey in any vehicle. For this reason, having an anti-lock braking system to make braking more efficient and safer should be a must. In fact, for almost 20 years all cars have been required by law to have an ABS system.

What is the main advantage of an anti-lock braking system?

It is true that a car is heavier than a bicycle and that it travels at higher speeds, so an anti-lock braking system is a must. However, with a bicycle you should reduce the risk of falling as much as possible because you are the chassis.

Optimal and safe braking

Having an ABS system on your bike will make your braking much more optimal. Having the security of not blocking your front wheel no matter how hard you squeeze the brake lever is synonymous with safety and security on the bike. In terms of performance, it is also a big step forward for all types of cyclists. The vast majority of cyclists will be able to improve their braking considerably and professionals who have already perfected their braking technique will be able to gain those centimeters that make the difference on a descent. ABS can bring the braking quality and distance of an amateur closer to that of a professional.

The first ABS system for bicycle hydraulic brakes

At Outbraker we work every day to take hydraulic brakes to the next level. We were the first brand to incorporate an anti-lock braking system on bikes with hydraulic brakes to reduce crashes and injuries to as many riders as possible. The Outbraker ABS is responsible for ensuring that much-needed active safety on top of the bike. So what are the features that make this possible?

Precise adjustment

The Outbraker ABS anti-lock braking system has 24 adjustment positions via dial to regulate its level of action on the braking system, ensuring safe braking in any environment (Dry and Wet) and discipline (MTB, Road, Urban and Gravel). It also has 3 DIFFERENT MODELS for a direct and simple installation. The first is the OB LEVER TYPE, which is installed on the brake levers and is suitable for both MTB and urban bikes. Secondly, the OB CALIPER TYPE which is compatible with hydraulic brake calipers in MTB but also has a version for road/gravel bikes.
