Why the Qnium thumb brake?
The thumb brake has increased in popularity and that isn’t for nothing. With your motorcycle boots, it can be difficult to find an optimal feeling by using the rear brake. Braking with your fingers is a lot more accurate and gives you more control. It’s also difficult to use the rear brake in the right corners. At that moment, you’re in a position where it’s difficult to reach it. Qnium’s advanced thumb brake solves this problem and helps your feeling by braking. If you are looking for better control over your bike during a nice mountain ride, the thumb brake is perfect. The Qnium thumb brake on your street bike can also help, if you are having a foot handicap.
Always traction with Qnium’s thumb brake
On a Moto2 and Moto3 bike the motorcycle leans forward by braking. The moment you turn into the corner, you release the front brake. When you do this, the front fork of the bike rises about 10 to 15 millimetres. So the corner angle and radius become wider. Just before you release the front brake, you use the Qnium thumb brake. Because of this the front fork doesn’t go up anymore. The radius becomes shorter so you make less meters, you finish the corner earlier and you can use the throttle sooner. You also have a phase without braking or accelerating, so you always maintain a feeling of traction and grip. Moreover a wheely is easier to control with a thumb brake. The Qnium thumb brake is also very popular for Superbike and Supersport bikes.
