Thread: ADI Brakes

    ADI Brakes

    Can anyone who has ADI Disc brakes, please help me out with an answer.

    Can you apply variable pressure to the brakes or are there just certain settings? The reason I ask is because, as a Quad on a steep down hill, I hook one arm behind my handle and use my palm to brake against one push rim, and the other hand pushes the brake harder or softer to keep my chair going straight.

    Can anyone confirm if this will still work with ADI brakes?

    Thanks!

    I always thought it could be used for what you want as explained here:

    yes with the quad lever you have some diffrernt settings, but if your cables are not set just right your chair will pull to one side. so you still have to do some steering but its not as bad as it is with out them.
