In the late 1990’s Clarks was one of the first cycle component manufacturers to identify the importance of hydraulic disc brakes. It put in a place a programme to develop and supply hydraulic brake sets into the OEM and Aftermarket. Through the early 2000’s Clarks was able to build on the success of the Exo and Skeletal models of brake, launching the M range of hydraulic disc brakes in 2012. Since then the award winning M2 and Clout 1 have been supplied around the world to OEM manufacturers and into world wide distribution channels across over 80 countries.
