Cable actuated and Hydraulic are the two main types of Disc Mountain bike brakes. Hydraulic can also be broken down into 2 types, sealed and open.
Cable actuated brakes by Shimano, Avid and Tecktro use a normal brake cable and lever like used with a Linear pull or V-Brakes.
Hydraulic Brakes come with levers that are connected to the brake calipers with hydraulic hoses just like on Motorcycles.
The advantages to disc brakes are:
- Better Modulation than Linear pull.
- Less fade when wet.
- Less affected by mud and snow.
- They don’t lock up when you ding your rim.
- They don’t heat up your rims.
The disadvantages of Disc Brakes:
- Heavier than Linear Pull.
- More wheel stress than linear pull
- More expensive than Linear Pull
