Braking Control - HDC TECHNOLOGY

Slowing down and stopping in control can be more important than pure speed. When cycling you will eventually need to transfer the wheel speed to braking energy in order to slow down. When brake pads are forced against the side of the rim it causes friction, which generates heat. This heat, if not addressed, can compromise your safety in several ways.


Energy Lab designed the braking surface by increasing it 150% larger then tradition wheels and redirected braking heat inward. This area called the Heat Dissipating Chamber (HDC), allows for better braking control for the rider overall by combining a deeper braking surface and a heat dam in the HDC.

This is important for cyclists when it's time to safely slow down.
