Disc brakes are a type of braking system used on bicycles. They use a metal rotor attached to the wheel hub and a caliper that squeezes the rotor to slow down or stop the wheel's rotation. The caliper contains brake pads that are pressed against the rotor, creating friction that slows or stops the wheel's movement.

Disc brakes are known for their superior stopping power, especially in wet or muddy conditions, and their ability to dissipate heat more efficiently than other brake systems, making them less prone to brake fade. They also require less force on the brake lever to achieve the same level of stopping power, allowing for more precise braking control. Disc brakes come in two main types: hydraulic and mechanical, with hydraulic systems providing more powerful and consistent braking performance.
