 no, it really wouldnt. one disk brake is by far enough to lock up the back wheel. once its locked up, more power is useless.

 also 60-70% of your breaking comes from your front brakes sooooo...
  • 4 1
 ......over the bars...
  • 16 8
 why.. You can lock your rear wheel piss easy and under heavy braking your rear wheel offers very little in the way of stopping power as it's only just touching the floor. Hence why Downhillers use smaller back rotors, it's the same on Motocross bikes. anyway, 2 front discs is useless. Codes or Gustavs are all you need.

 Why do you say two front disc brakes is useless? Are you an engineer? How much time do you think they have taken to develop this bike? YEARS! You just assume that they put the other front brake for esthetics? Think again 3ven.
  • 6 1
 i just think its overkill though. 2 rotors in the front are not needed. i agree with 3ven. codes, gustavs or even the new hayes stroker ace are more than adequate to get the job done. thats just my view on it.

 @ rotato

I am. And it's not useless but almost.

 there is no need for two front rortors. the technology has been around for years and if it was really needed in the bike industry it would have been used years ago

 if you need 2 discs to slow you down then you will hit everything way too slow.

 its a richi engeenerig bike with 240mm travel f/r. it weighs 19,5 kilos and costs "only" 14000euros.

 Unbelievable weight. I'm imagining a ride with that.

 yeah, 43lbs doesn't seem that bad

 one of the advantages of having two on the front is reduced dishing under braking... the wheel wont pull to one side at high speeds, thats one of the reasons motorbiks use them i believe, and also to reduce heat output awesome bike though! a real design!
  • 4 3
 Rear wheels lock up faster, no point in having two when one will cause loss of traction just fine. Two in the front is retarded enough, expecially with todays brakes. Motos don't have two! Doesn't really matter though, the whole bike is pretty fruity. But gotta trash a little fruit to make a pie... for you little kids, that means that this is a good stepping stone to better things.

 The symmetric dual disc-sys is less about maximizing breaking power, but eliminating lateral torsion of fork while breaking since it`s a usd without arch.
Hub-drivetrain with zero chaingrowth is one fine detail!

 Yes, and it turns to both sides equality.

 - typo - meant braking of course! lol

 Disc brakes dont pull the wheel to one side as there is only one wheel to stop so that single wheel just stops in a straight line, the only time it may pull to one side is if the spokes are REALLY loose as they will twist towards the left but normal riding having a disc on one side makes absolutely no difference to brake pulling
  • 2 1
 You are forgetting the lateral flex of the fork.
  • 0 1
 But that barely makes a different if the fork is stiff, it may make a small difference with these forks due to them having no crown but regular forks wont do it
  • 2 0
 I don't know any fork so stiff, until my Monster T. When you brake at high speeds, dozens of newtons act over just one side. The vectors are decomposed from the calliper support in the fork and the rotor support in the hub. If you have symmetry by two brakes, all these troubles are eliminated because the undesired left vectors annul the rights vectors and vice-versa.

 first of all, its DISC anyways, its totally necessary, just read up above

 B-Free said "But gotta trash a little fruit to make a pie... " quote of the day

 that doesn't really make sence to me because it is in the middle of the tire so it seems like it wouldn't get any mud on it where at the top of a fork, it is right above the tire so it seems like it would get mud flung up on to it... they should make a middle travel fork Smile

 i love the two discs in the front! every year our bikes are looking more and more like motorcycles and also getting up there in price as well. sick bike!!! i want it very sexy Wink
  • 4 1
 Germans know make machines and final cut.
  • 1 0
 yes its not about more braking power, but the fact that theres no fork arch.less flexing more even braking.just like ndrs said. I would love a bike like that

 dude when you hit the brakes in anything going at high speeds the weight shifts to the front, the back cne lock up much easyier then, like you said, just like motor bikes, and cars the front brakes a re bigger than the back ones, and this does add to brake power and less wheel dish/ pull to one side
  • 1 2
 i agree with hills540. The rear brake only can do so much once the wheel starts to lock. But if you have more power in the front you can switch your weight to the back and cranks the brakes on in the front
  • 2 1
 they should have used right-way-up shox cause the disc brake mount is getting in the way of sum extra travel
  • 2 1
 not at all. the sliders are not long enough so the tire would hit the lower crown before it'd touch the brake mount.
  • 1 0
 however they were prob smart enough to make it bottom out before either of that happens
