Re: Heavy Duty Brakes
They do not necessarily stop sooner but they do resist fade much better, so you can ride them down hill longer without burning them up. As you mentioned, the quick way is to look at the rear rotor through the wheel, Compare with the rear with the front rotors. if the rear rotor is solid, its standard brakes, if its vented like the front brakes, its HD. All fronts are vented.
