TRP Slate T4 Disc Brake
The Slate T4 is a four-piston brake birthed from the same stables as the more expensive TRP Quadiem Disc Brake but at a fraction of the cost. Suited to a wide range of riding styles from aggressive Trail Riding, Gravity Enduro, DH to marathon XC events, the Slate T4 is a true all-rounder with incredible stopping power.
Featuring an ergonomically designed lever for improved finger grip and precision feathering, a powerful four-piston calliper for maximum rotor contact, improved modulation and heat dissipation, resulting in a more consistent braking performance, over longer periods of riding.
The Slate uses a single bar clamp that keeps your bars and cockpit looking clean and clutter-free, and also makes fitting and removal easy. The Slate is also compatible with ‘I-Spec' Shimano gear shifters.
With a tool-free reach adjustment and an open top loading design for easy pad replacement, the Slate is a fuss-free brake to set up and adjust. There's also enough room to run finned pads, which improve cool-down times.
The Slate is a stylish, clean looking brake system with world-class performance at a price that won't hurt your wallet.

They’re a bit underwhelming for the price, they came on my bike and for that they’re good as but no if you are upgrading, LOOK ELSEWHERE. They just bedded in and they’re about as strong as an above average cable disc brake. Meh, just meh, definitely upgrading
