Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
I disagree, the front brake provides most of the stopping, if anything a larger front rotor makes sense. Reducing the power slightly doesn't make the brake much less prone to lock up on a truly loose surface. Adjust technique in these situations. Fast riders don't brake much, and when they do, it's where they have the traction.

Suspension, Anti-Lock Brakes, and a Dropper Post Cable Kit - Taipei Cycle Show 2019
There are two parts to this, the first is that the device above is not an anti-lock braking system like you see on cars or motorcycles. The concept of a true anti lock brake system is sound. It has been on larger offroad motorcycles for awhile and works extremely well. It's fitted to, and useful on larger adventure bike because of the type of riding they are used for, i.e. gravel roads where traction is limited and skidding is not desired when stopping. If all you did on a mountain bike was bomb down loose rocky fire roads abs might be nice to have. Couple of issues. the first is that a true and sophisticated abs system would add unacceptable weight and complexity to a bicycle. Adjusting riding style in conditions where traction is scarce is a much better way to go. Secondly, much like on a motocross bike, skidding is often used as a technique for maintaining control in various situations. ABS simply would not be desired by many aggressive riders because coming to safe and complete stop simply isn't on the menu often. Could I see it being nice on a touring bike? Yea, but I don't ever see it happening due to all the necessary equipment, cost and weight. It's just not that big of an issue that needs addressing. Bikes are light and they are generally easy to stop.
