Brakes. I mean, they’re important. We even named our magazine after them. It might not be a great magazine name but using the brakes well is easily one of the most important core skills of riding. Using them on and off-road well, is an almost identical technique. The surface and grip are different, yet the principle of maximising grip and getting stoped smoothly and efficiently are not. In the video we talk you through getting the most from that front stopper, helping you understand how to use the suspension to your advantage and how to use the lever properly.
