This bike is equipped with mechanical disc brakes from Shimano. Turning away from the rim brake offers a variety of advantages. There is no damage to the rim, under all weather conditions the same braking power is given, rim weight can be saved (lower rotational inertia) and in the case of spoke failure it is possible to ride on. In addition to the great braking power and immense amount of space for dirt and mud, they also allow the frame designers to give the rear more flex. The history of the mountain bike already told the path to go.
The Mares frame furthermore features internally routed cables, rack mount-, fender- option (frame only), thru axles and a clean mount of the brake caliper on the chainstay. The painting is made in powder coating method. The derailleur hanger is replaceable.
Along with the gorgeous, great-handling alloy frame and carbon fork, you get a tough Concept Disc wheelset and a precision-shifting new Shimano Tiagra drivetrain with light, stiff Shimano Tiagra compact cranks and powerful, mechanical Shimano R517 disc brakes.
