Hayes Stroker Trail Disc Brake
The Stroker Trail improves on the Ryde in a number of ways, beginning with an indexed, tool-free reach-adjust dial that makes setup a snap. The caliper features an adjustable banjo for tight, snag-free hose routing, plus Hayes' signature tool-free pad removal. The Stroker Trail also boasts a greater hydraulic ratio than the Ryde, for enhanced stopping power and modulation. No wonder the Stroker Trail has already been ridden to numerous World Cup championships.

AWESOME BRAKES that won't "STROKE" yer wallet! I had probs with a pair of Hayes Mags that came on my bike. After sending them back to Hayes three times, I finally gave up and decided to break down and buy a new set of Hayes brakes that were a bit newer technology than my old mags. When I saw how inexpensive the Strokers were I bought a set ASAP and paired them up with my Hayes 8 inch rotors. YES I am using them on my DH bike. For where I ride, they stop me fast, don't fade, and the harder I pull the quicker they grab! LOVE them. Can't beat the price either. You won't find them cheaper than here on Pricepoint. Trust me. I'm cheap!
Excellent brakes for the price. Plenty of stopping power. I have paired with Hayes V rotors.
I bought a used Giant Trance X2 and the brakes where really shady, it had the Hayes Stroker Ride brakes. Extremely noisy, and terrible breaking, well after a few weeks they were shot, so at first I was reluctant to get the Hayes Trails because of how the stock brakes where... But for the price what can I say... I installed them in about 2 minutes, and was off to the trails to test them. It's like night and day, I did not change the rotors btw. These brakes are quite, awesome stopping power and just feel so much better than the old ones. Will be buying another set for my SS 29er.
I bought a set of these for my 29er SS build and matched them to 185mm Ashima AiRotors. I must say that they exceeded my expecations as far as being ~$130 for the pair.
if you are looking for a reliable setup, that doesn't make noise. these are the brakes for you. Follow the installation instructions precisely or google it and you will not go wrong. These brakes are powerful and have good modulation. Don't forget that part of great stopping isn't just brakes you need the right tires for the trails you ride.
