Originally from Germany, but for the last 25 years resident in the UK, Michael has decades in the cycling world. Starting off, as you did at the time, in XC racing, he quickly went on to the longer marathon distances as well as 12-hour solo racing. His love for the sport made him look at the other side of events, and for the last 20 years, he has been organizing some of the biggest and most innovative cycling events in the UK. Now, Michael is far more into his trail, and enduro riding and racing as well as spending countless hours exploring new event locations and recceing challenging enduro tracks.
Trail and Enduro:
All year-round stopping power, combined with perfect modulation and durability, is Michael’s focus when it comes to brake pads. The copper-free pads offer precisely that and have the added benefit that they don’t release any copper particles into the environment.

Being able to deal with extreme heat, often generated by steep and demanding terrain, is what matters to Michael. Here the floating rotors excel and offer consistent stopping performance even after prolonged and extreme braking.
Marathon and long distance:
Racing the UK, more often than not, course conditions would turn wet and muddy at some point. During those moments, the Sintered pads have proven their reliability over and over again and have turned into Michael’s favourite choice when racing can take up to 12 hours.

Being perhaps not the lightest of riders and appreciating top-notch stopping power, Michael relies on the 180 mm option of the AirTech rotors, which perfectly combines lightweight, great heat dissipation and reliable braking performance.
