Brake lever pulls too far before the brakes engage? Different lever feel and contact point between front and rear brakes? 

The Brake Pad Advancement Tool is the solution to limited adjustability of bicycle hydraulic disc brakes. The Brake Pad Advancement Tool allows you to adjust the brake pad contact point and lever throw quickly and easily without bleeding your brakes. Get the perfect lever feel every time!

The Brake Pad Advancement Tool works with all brands of hydraulic bicycle brakes and works by precisely advancing the brake pads towards the rotor which reduces the distance the brake lever pulls. For best results, your rotors must be true. See how to use it below.

Handy tool

Easy to use and works great.

Christopher Wittwer

This guy made my day. I was worried initially as I went through the procedure but ended up toward the lower end of the range here for 1.9mm rotor width. No more squirming panic hands on nasty descents.

Pad Spacing to a Science

Hydraulic brakes aren’t always self sufficient. This tool allows the user to make quick adjustments to suit personal preferences on lever throw and pad clearance.

Works as Advertised

The tool works perfectly as described. I was able to shift the contact point by 4-5 mm on the first shot. One pad rubbed slightly afterwards, but that was quickly solved by adjusting the caliper position. This tool is a must for people with short fingers and bikes with hydraulic brakes.

Takes the guesswork out of contact point adjustment

I couldn’t find any product like this in Europe! This tool is great and works well. Recommended!
