Hayes announced the coming of the PRIME brake some time ago and it looks like things are finally falling into place. Check inside for a video overview as well as product highlights on the Prime Pro and Prime Expert disc brakes.

The Prime is designed to offer tool free contact/reach adjustment and increased braking power over their Stroker brake. They’ve developed a new rotor as well to match this new brake.
