2017 Shimano Acera M3050 Disc Brake
The hydraulic Acera M3050 disc brake + ST-M3050 brake lever for beginners and price-conscious cyclists. Ready to use, filled and easily mountable. With B01S resin brake pads, but without disc. Front wheel version. For a more clean appearance, Shimano integrated the shift and 2-finger brake lever. This gives a clean appearance and improves the cable routing. The enlarged optical gear display allows entry level mountain bikers to instantly check in which gear they are riding. A single shift lever is optional available. The Acera mountain bike group set is available with hydraulic disc brakes that can be maintained through one way and funnel bleeding. The tough anti-rust components give maximum performance with minimal maintenance. The brake caliper can directly be mounted on Postmount if a 160mm disc is used. For bigger disc diameters or IS2000 an adaptor is required. Shimano recommends the use of SM-RT54 or SM-RT56 discs.
More Bike Brakes
Shimano are a Japanese manufacturer primarily known for their cycling components, and to a lesser extent shoes and clothing. Founded in 1921, Shimano is widely believed to be the largest cycling component manufacturer in the world, having reached this status through a combination of innovation, reliability and value for money. Whatever your style of riding, whether it be road or MTB, Shimano will have a component range to suit your level and budget, from the low end Alivio and Tiagra to the professional standard XTR and Dura-Ace. Over the years, Shimano have revolutionised bicycle gear, brake and pedal systems, such as the recessed SPD, Hollowtech crank arms and smooth shifting Hyperglide sprockets. Initially their component range faced competition from Suntour, whereas nowadays their primary rivals for market share are SRAM and Campagnolo.
