About Tektro

Tektro was established in 1986 founded on building the highest quality braking systems available in the bicycle industry. TEKTRO Brakes are designed for superior levels of performance and durability achieved through the use of advanced production techniques, accurate processing and meticulous quality control. By using exotic materials such as Carbon Fibre, Titanium and TT6 Aluminium, TEKTRO brakes set a new industry standard for lightweight and precise control. TEKTRO brakes are extensively tested for reliability and safety on and off-road, and in the laboratory - by a company with more than 25 years’ experience designing and manufacturing bicycle brake systems.


Tektro offer mechanically activated hydraulic disc brake where a standard brake cable is pulled to activate the hydraulic pistons down on the calliper. TEKTRO sensor control designed brake levers are sensitive and durable and help to ensure a transferred steadiness of control and power under braking. TEKTRO road callipers feature a cable lock device to allow the quick and easy removal of wheels. Aero brake options are available to offer low drag and help to increase a rider’s top speed.


For many years now, Tekro have been the company of choice for many bicycle manufactures who are after reliable brakes for OEM spec on bikes. This makes them a brand you can trust, whether you want to upgrade to disc brakes or are after a part for a repair, Tektro will have something for you without the big price tag.
