RA­DIAL VER­SUS NON-RA­DIAL

Performance Bikes (UK) - - The Garage -

A ra­dial pis­ton master cylin­der has a pis­ton that works in par­al­lel to the di­rec­tion of lever travel; a con­ven­tional master cylin­der’s pis­ton runs at about 90° of that travel. Be­cause the move­ment of the master is work­ing di­rectly in re­la­tion to the travel of the lever rather than through a pivot with a large vary­ing rate of lever­age, the feel is more di­rect and lin­ear.
