Operated in the same way as disc brake pads with a simple squeeze on the brake lever located on the handlebars, rim brake pads have the same role of stopping the bike, they just go about it in a different way. Rather than creating pressure on the rotors like disc brake pads, a set of rim brake pads create friction on the rotating rim of the wheel to help bring it to a stop.
Predominantly used on city and road bikes, rim brake pads are lighter than disc brake pads and help to save weight; allowing the bike to be more streamlined and - most importantly - faster.
If you're looking for a new set of rim brake pads because yours are starting to show signs of deterioration, or perhaps you're looking for a more modern and lightweight upgrade, then you'll find exactly what you need at Tweeks Cycles. Regardless of the make and model of your bike, the budget you have or your cycling ability we've got a selection of rim brake pads from the likes of Shimano, Aztec, Swissstop, SRAM and more to help you improve your stopping power.
