In this handbook, within each paragraph, you will find the following safety notices:
CAUTION: Directs your attention toward unsafe practices which could result in damages
to the equipment.
WARNING: Directs your attention toward unsafe practices which could result in personal
injury or damages to the equipment.
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
• FORMULA SRL brakes have been designed for use on two-wheel vehicles with human
propulsion only. Any other application is dangerous may result in the failure of this product.
FORMULA SRL declines any and all responsibility for the safety of this product is used for an
application other than which it is intended.
• FORMULA SRL brakes are a high-performance product, offering superior braking over normal
brakes, so less braking force is required to lock up the wheel. Be aware that a locked wheel
can make you lose control and can be the cause of an accident and injury. In-depth knowledge
about the function and features of this product is required before use.
• The user is responsible for learning and using the correct braking technique; consult the
Owner’s Manual of the bicycle, ask a professional bicycle dealer for advice, or contact Formula
srl for additional details and recommendations.
20
Formula srl - Maggio 2008
• Test the brakes and your braking technique on flat and even ground before using the bike in
more severe conditions.
• Brakes are essential for the safe use of a bicycle. The improper setup and use of the brakes can
make you lose control and cause an accident, with the subsequent potential to cause serious
injury.
• Do not introduce your hands close to or within moving parts; always use strong five-fingered
gloves ensuring sensitivity and a powerful grip.
• Do not change the parameters of the braking system to obtain other performances than those
established by the manufacturer.
• Before starting any mounting operations, carefully check for dangerous conditions of the
work site. If too dark, use all available light sources and make sure they work properly before
starting to work.
• Concentrate and take the due precautions before using components which could cause
damages.
• When using the bike, it is advisable to wear an helmet and to ride with care and sense of
responsibility.
• All extraordinary maintenance operations have to be carried out solely by personnel authorized
by FORMULA SRL.
• Don’t touch the surface of the disc rotors with your bare hands as the natural oils on your skin
can compromise performance. Always wear clean latex gloves when handling the disc rotors.
• Disc brakes get very hot when used. WARNING: NEVER touch the caliper or the rotor
immediately after use. Make sure the brakes have cooled down before working on them.
• Before use check to ensure the front brake lever is on the side of the handlebars you are
accustomed to having it on. If the lever is on the other side, sudden braking can cause you
serious injury. Have a professional mechanic swap the position of the levers if they are
incorrect.
• A high braking load (total weight over 100 Kg and an incline of over 15%) will mean a
necessary reduction in your speed and the use of both brakes when braking.
BRAKING SYSTEM SAFETY RULES
• Before each use, check all fasteners for correct torque. Torque ratings are supplied in this
manual and an appropriate torque wrench is required to perform this check.
• The brake rotors must be installed on wheels that are suitable for this type of brake system. A
wheel with an insufficient spoke section or with a radial spoke fitting can break under normal
use of the braking system and cause serious injury or an accident. Check with your wheel
manufacture BEFORE installation to ensure appropriate compatibility.
• Check the spoke tension and condition frequently. A damaged spoke may break suddenly,
interfere with the braking system and result in serious personal injury or accidents. The bike
frame or fork shall be suitable for mounting the braking system. Only in this case, the correct
dimensioning of the supports and the suitable positioning of the elements which form it is
assured.
• The frame and the fork of the bicycle must be suitable for this type of braking system. The
support, size and position of the components will function properly only if the system is
intended for use with the appropriate disc brake.
• It is critical to cross-check your frame and fork manufacturers’ manuals on all the
Formula srl - Maggio 2008
21
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
22
parts of the braking system verify that the torque ratings match the ratings found
in this manual. In the case of inconsistency of the values, don’t install the braking
system.
Make sure the bicycle is clean before doing any maintenance on the brakes.
Never install the brakes using adapters or supports supplied by other manufacturers. Doing
so will void the warranty and release Formula srl of liability. Only use original Formula srl
products.
Only use products recommended in this manual, otherwise you can damage the system and
the brakes will be unreliable and potentially dangerous.
Don’t let brake fluid or other oils or grease used for lubricating the bicycle come into contact
with the disc rotors. If this does happen, clean the discs using isopropyl alcohol ONLY.
Don’t let brake fluid or lubricants come into contact with the brake pads. If this does happen,
the brake pads will be contaminated and must be replaced before the next use.
Only use DOT 4 brake fluid from a new bottle. NEVER use old oil, or oil that has been bled out
of the system. Old oil can contain water and this will compromise the performance and
function of the system.
All new brakes, new brake pads and new discs have to bed in. This requires at least 50
applications of the brakes at a speed of 30 Km/h before the brakes reach the maximum
performance. Make sure you are in a zone where there is no road traffic to bed the brakes
in.
Before every ride make sure there are no oil leaks from the system by applying the lever and
holding it down as far as it will go. Check the hose connections and the brake fluid reservoir for
any leaks. Consult a professional mechanic if there are oil leaks. An oil leak can cause a serious
accident!
THE BRAKING SYSTEM MAY NOT HAVE THE HIGHEST BRAKING EFFICIENCY WHEN NEW,
THEREFORE A BREAK IN PERIOD AND LONGER DISTANCES SHOULD BE ALLOWED FOR UNTIL
THE SYSTEM IS BROKEN IN.
The efficiency of the brakes depends on many factors which FORMULA SRL has no control
over. These include the speed of the bike, the wheel-terrain contact, the brake lever application
force, the correct installation and maintenance of the brakes, the hydraulic brake fluid, the
levers, the brake shoes or pads, the condition of the bike, the weight of the rider, the correct
braking technique, the weather conditions, the type and conditions of the terrain, and many
other factors.
We recommend using medium strength Loctite (Loctite 222 or 242) on all threaded
fasteners. After applying Loctite and fitting the fastener, clean any excess Loctite
with a cloth. Let the Loctite dry for at least 24 hours BEFORE use.
Formula srl - Maggio 2008
