Revolutionary 360 Brake









Good bye big rotors. Good bye brake calipers. Here the brand new 360 Brake, a completely contained brake system in a 5-inch hub spacer around the axle. It looks like no brake at all. How does it work? The circular piston and pads are activated by hydraulic pressure, all of which revolves 360° around the axle. You can think of it like the clutch on your tranny, but in reverse. Applying 360-degree of braking pressure delivers substantial greater braking power. Baldwin-Wilson Development, the company behind the 360 Brake, states that this new system  offers a better control with smooth, straight line braking, and also an improved distribution of braking between the front & rear wheel. The company thought about the heat build up which is controlled with special rotor and pad materials that are cooled by the slots in the hub cover.  These slots also play a roll in eliminating dust build up by way of the grooved rotor.  The brake hub will fit ¾”, 1”, 20mm, and 18mm axles. Question: what wheels will it fit? Baldwin Wilson is modifying its system to fit the most popular custom wheels. Baldwin Wilson Development Corporation is an engineering enterprise located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Their tech support will assist you with installation and fitment questions.

    That is one of the best products to come onto the market for custom bikes since they started making aluminum wheels. Now we can show off our exspensive wheels. And they look great.

    Agreed, Stephen. Will ride 1 bike equipped with it during Bike Week.

    We were so impressed with this product we gave it an IronWorks Innovation Award at the Cincinnati show.

    This sounds and looks like a great idea. But, has anyone actually used it? I checked out the companies website, and i didn’t see any testimonials with pictures etc. I’m interested to hear from someone that has used this product.
