What is Slidepad?:
Slidepad is a patent pending brake technology that prevents dangerous head over handlebar accidents and makes braking simple by condensing a two lever braking system into a more efficient one lever system. Whether you are cruising to the park, beach, coffee shop, or work, enjoy peace of mind and simplicity with a Slidepad equipped bicycle. Equip your existing bike or find a new bike with Slidepad at a dealer near you.
Slidepad consists of a guide and sliding brake pad designed to integrate into a v-brake arm. As the rear brake is applied from a single lever, the force from the rear wheel slides the pad forward. The forward force of the sliding pad pulls a cable to engage the front brake, alleviating the need for a front brake lever. The rotational force of the rear wheel automatically modulates the front brake, to ensure safe and smooth braking.
