Cryo-Blue POWER Brake Pads
New in 2014, Reynolds announces the next generation of carbon fiber braking technology: Cryo-Blue Power Brake Pads, which it co-engineered with industry leader Brakco. To understand the significance of Reynolds’ new Cryo-Blue Power Brake Pads, it is necessary to first understand Reynolds Cryogenic Glass Transition (CTg) Braking System, which consists of two components:
- A unique, hybrid carbon-fiber laminate in the brake track
- A blue polymer brake pad
Together, the brake track and pad minimize heat build-up from pad-to rim friction and dissipate heat away to ensure smooth, predictable braking.
Reynolds has high expectations for the performance of this system. While the original Cryo-Blue Blue Pads still exceed Reynolds’ standards, the Cryo-Blue Power Brake Pads set the bar even higher. Testing validates that the new Power Pads deliver 33% increase in dry conditions stopping and 42% increase in wet conditions stopping.
- Sleek, tapered design
- 44% larger braking surface than the original Cryo-Blue Pads.
- Six angled slots that move air and water through them, offering increased cooling in dry conditions, and increased control in wet conditions.
