Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Integrated Brakes

Integrated Brakes: Integrated Brakes are used on motorcycles to link together the front and rear brakes. Many inexperienced riders in panic situations tend to overuse the rear (foot) brake. This causes skidding and possible loss of control. Integrated brakes work by applying one of the front disc brakes along with the rear brakes when the brake foot pedal is depressed. The best situation is for a motorcyclist to use the front and rear brakes together to effect a fast controlled stop. With Integrated Brakes, at least there is the improved chance that the bike will stop in a controlled manner just using the rear brake. Bear in mind that proper use of the front brake while applying the rear brake will cause the machine to stop faster.
