Hydraulic brakes are generally considered to be superior to mechanical brakes for ebikes in a number of ways. Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Better performance: Hydraulic brakes offer better modulation and control compared to mechanical brakes. This means that you can apply the brakes more smoothly and precisely, which is especially important when riding an ebike, which tends to be heavier and faster than a traditional bike.
  2. Increased power: Hydraulic brakes provide more stopping power than mechanical brakes, which is especially useful when riding an ebike, which tends to be heavier and faster than a traditional bike. This increased power can help to reduce the distance it takes to stop, which is especially important for safety.
  3. Improved durability: Hydraulic brakes are generally more durable than mechanical brakes, as they are less prone to wear and tear. This means that you can expect longer-lasting performance from your hydraulic brakes, which can save you time and money in the long run.
  4. Easier maintenance: Hydraulic brakes require less maintenance than mechanical brakes, as they have fewer moving parts and do not rely on cables. This makes them easier to service and maintain, which can save you time and hassle.
  5. Better adaptability: Hydraulic brakes are easier to adjust than mechanical brakes, which makes them more adaptable to different terrain and riding styles. This can be especially useful if you plan to ride your ebike on a variety of surfaces or in different weather conditions.

Overall, while both hydraulic and mechanical brakes have their pros and cons, hydraulic brakes tend to offer a number of advantages

    Much better than stock cable actuated brakes. stronger stopping power, smoother action and no more pad adjustments.

    Can’t wait to get them installed. Original brakes do not cut it. This upgrade is a must for Rhino…and do yourself a favor, get also removable grips & throttle combo…it is a pain to remove old grips when installing the brakes…it’s easier is to cut them and discard…

    It's been tough locating these brakes, tried different stores but could not find one. Saw one of Gareth's video tutorials, which led me to his website. Gosh, so glad i did, got my first set not too long ago and these are my second ones. Easy to install, highly recommended and the price is right!

    Overall, this is a pretty solid upgrade over the stock RadCity 3 cable brakes. They feel more solid, particularly with 205 pound me on the bike. IMHO, the RadCity 3 should have had hydraulic brakes by default, just given the weight - the 5 does. The line length is luckily pretty good for this model. Both the front and rear are a little long, but not so much that you can't zip-tie everything back together - for me, not enough to think about trimming the line. I ran the rear line through the frame using the old cable line taped to it to fish it through, no issues at all.

    These were just about drop-in on this model, but just some things to be aware of:

    - The front caliper mounted using the stock bracket was just a hair too deep, so use a pair of washers to keep the top of the caliper from rubbing the rotor
    - I had to bleed the brakes a bit. They certainly stopped without it, but there was a little bit of air that probably got in during shipping. A universal bleed kit works just fine here, the mushroom bolt on the brake lever is where you attach
    - The rear caliper mounts without any adapter bracket
    - I'm not sure that you can adjust the reach on these levers, but for me they're fine (and my hands are not large)

    Overall, I'm really happy that I upgraded to this brake kit. I feel a lot more confident braking from 20+ MPH, but also being able to slow down on steep downhills.

    Finally, Gareth is super helpful over email. While like zero documentation about these brakes exists online, it's clear he's spent a lot of time with these on others' bikes and can get you un-stuck.

    I did look around but came back to BGB because I knew this kit will fit my RadRunner Plus. And the support from Gareth when needed is priceless. BGB is the place to go for RAD upgrades, hands down. So far each of my 3 purchases have been 100% successful.

    Firstly have to say what a pleasure it was dealing with Gareth. Informative and helpful in every way.

    Finally decided to upgrade my original brakes from a 750 Watt Rad Rhino 2017 - amazed they lasted so long! - what a difference, especially combined with the Eggrider. - This is truly a must have purchase for a bike of this weight.

    So easy to install following the video.

    Only 'niggle' was that there were no rubber grips on the levers, like the stock ones, although not a major problem as these were easily purchased.

    A great upgrade for the steep Cornish hills and a 750 W motor. Easy to fit and as they aren’t pre assembled you can run the lines through the frame if required. Follow Gareth’s instruction videos and you don’t need to bleed them after assembly either. These are a much better design than the standard cable operated ones and should be on the bike when it leaves the factory. Great product, great instructions and great service again.

    Since the original brakes on the RadRino have a lot more to wish for, you really need this upgrade.
    The ordering was simple, but a bit of a confusion regarding sending more than one itim to reduce the shipping cost. However it worked out well in the end. The additional cost for custom fees since Brexit is new to us all. I can highly recommend buying this kind of stuff from Gareth and I will be back for sure..

    I needed more powerful brakes after having the Eggrider installed. When cycling at higher speeds, these brakes make the difference! Easy to install, thanks to the instruction videos. These brakes should be standard on the Rad power bikes, if you ask me.

The instruction video made by Gareth was awesome! It made my installation a handy to do. Doing it yourself (DIY) is also a great opportunity to learn and a wonderful experience.

    Overall, a 100% recommended upgrade for your Rad Runner Plus.
