Hydraulic Disc Brakes
The best of the best when it comes to brake technology, hydraulic disc brakes are what professional bikers use to ensure they brake efficiently and smoothly while riding. Braking is clearly one of the most important pieces of a mountain bike, and when it comes electric bikes this is even more true. Because your electric bike is motorized, and you often are riding faster than you would be on a normal bike, having effective and smooth brakes is extremely important to make sure you do not hurt yourself or others while riding.
The Rambo 750 electric bike has both front and rear brakes powered by Logan HD-E500 180 mm 2 piston hydraulics. More effective than rim or mechanical disc brakes in nearly every way, hydraulic disc brakes will give you excellent control and stopping power, while also lowering maintenance needed for you electric bike.
The Rambo 750 electric bike was designed to be ridden outdoors and giving the bike fully sealed hydraulic breaks was a great decision by Rambo bikes and helps reduce any brake maintenance that can be time consuming and costly when it comes to repairing rim or mechanical disc brakes.
