Re: How fast is too fast?

Braking system is their Inifni Brake System which means it has both centrifugal and magnetic brakes.. Doesn't take much to convert to IVCB braking. :big grin: New spool, new sideplate. Or if removable take off the magnetic wheel on spool and basic centrifugal brakes to replace with the IVCB setup. ...

Re: Alphabrake - New Kind of Braking?

Hey Guys, Just caught this thread or I would have responded much earlier. Sorry for the delay. Been buried taking care of my portion of the ICAST writeup both on the main site and on Instagram. If you follow Zander on IG, I think he posted a photo or two from our introduction to the Alpha Brake. I d...
