Hot Disc Brake Concerns Raised in the Pro Peloton

Pro cyclist posts video of how hot disc brakes can get under extreme braking.

The UCI originally trialled disc brakes in professional road cycling at the end of the 2015 season, and allowed widespread use in 2016, but they were banned after Francisco Ventoso suffered a deep gash to his leg at Paris-Roubaix.

June’s restart of the disc brake trial included one key modification to existing equipment in order to address at least one of those issues — rounded edges on rotors, so as to minimize the chance of laceration.

The possibility of contact burns from rotors that have become hot after braking on long descents seems to still be an issue.
