looks like a dumb brake to me?

Looks good for a cruiser, but I wonder quick it starts to fade due to heat, with the rotor being totally enclosed

Looks almost like a clutch without the springs.

The 360 part is just marketing hype. Being so small and close to the center of the wheel, the pads probably HAVE to contact the whole rotor surface to generate enough stopping power.

True.. and they brag how soft the initial bite is; I imagine it has to build some heat before it develops enough friction to start slowing down.

Not to mention, I wonder how long those pads last...especially if you do any spirited riding...

I'm pretty sure they are aimed at the cruiser market, so spirited riding is exempt..

They even mention how this eliminates tank slappers caused by brake torque on one side of the wheel from a single rotor.. LOL!

interesting concept, it can be heavily improved if given a greater circumference. It also looks heavily enclosed so i wonder how efficient it really is at it stands now when you have to brake very hard in an emergency airflow to the rotors looks minimal and you need all the air drag you can use when the rotors become extremely hot. I'd assume they've tested them in such conditions before they ever thought of selling, at least thats what a good engineer would do. I'd like to see this done on an SS bike.

Hi, we failed physics...buy our brake.

Instead of lifting all the weight off the back tire, due to the shift of bike weight common in current braking systems, the 360 Brake creates more down force and keeps better traction on the road. (In the typical brake set-up, the position of the caliper and distance from the axle center of rotation actually creates a “lever arm” affect that causes the feeling of being catapulted over the handle bars when the brakes are applied quickly, as in a panic stop.)

o Instead of the typical 80-20, or 90-10 braking, our brake is more like 60-40 front- to-rear, because of this dramatically reduced weight shift.

Yeah Shad, I noticed that brief quip on the website. Not sure how exactly planned to justify that, considering any given stopping force, say 0.5G acting at the front wheel is going to produce the same torque about the front axle regardless of the diameter of the rotor. The only way it would be less is if.....there's less braking force....which seems to be what they're saying. Something like "Buy our brake and get 30% less stopping power". Still a pretty cool idea, just needs work to be practical rather than just pretty.

This allows you to brake straighter, longer and harder without losing control.
