Braktec dominates one more year in the world trial

Braktec dominates one more year in the world trial

For another year, and in 9 seasons since 2012, Braktec has been the brake system that has won the Trial World Cup. Again, Toni Bou and Adam Raga have played a short but intense championship that, although it has seen its competition venues reduced, has had the novelty of playing two events every weekend.

Both drivers have starred in a very intense sporting rivalry this season with alternation at the top of the podium, which led to a final date with the two swords at the top.

As he has subscribed in recent years, Toni Bou prevailed over Adam Raga and won his 12th world trial, a figure that matches the World Cups he also holds in the indoor event.

Both drivers, like the rest of the participants of the elite of the competition, equip their bikes with the Braktec brakes produced by J.Juan for the past several seasons. This year, both have taken advantage of the latest technology from the Barcelonese manufacturer and have equipped their state-of-the-art CNC caliper, called Gold.

Not only has Braktec shone in the top men’s category, but also in the women’s competition where Enma Bristow has won her sixth consecutive world cup, and where Sandra Gomez and Berta Abellán have also excelled.



J.Juan brake systems are acquiring great prestige worldwide. You may think that it is anexaggeration of the marketing or commercial team, but our systems have won in the competitions where they have been present. Be it speed, off road, two or four wheels. Sounds like an over exaggeration but it’s a reality, and a direct result f the hard work of everyone in the J.Juan Group.


Speedies to the Podium


If we look in the field of speed, J.Juan has been proclaimed champion in Italy, France, Portugal and Spain in Moto3, monodisk, and Premoto3. He has also won in the European (FIM-CEV) motorcycle 3 and in the Talent Cup, and we have done so in multiple ways by equipping different brands such as Honda, BeOn, RMU, KTM or MIR.

Many will tell us that in Moto3 of the World Cup we have not been successful. This is false! In the World Cup we cannot equip our double disc front system because our engineering team considers that it is not in the proper development phase to win races, but the riders who have used our Thumbrake have climbed, continuously, to the top of the competition. This is the case with Aaron Canet, and, it seems that next season will bring very positive news about our thumb brake in all categories, even in MotoGP.

Also, in Moto2 of the World Cup we have had a breakthrough. This season has been equipped by Stop and Go, a team that in previous seasons struggled to score. In this season, they hav achieved 2 pole position and they have climbed twice to the podium! We already foresee them competing for first place with Alex Márquez next year.


Another World Championship to Rea

As for Superbikes … More incredible news! Jonathan Rea has broken a historical record by winning the World Cup for an amazing fifth time! Few know that Kawasaki had never won in this category until the Roda brothers (Guim and Biel) took control and equipped, in passing, J.Juan hydraulic tube systems. In seven seasons, they have won 6 world titles.

Ana Carrasco, on the other hand, has not been able to conquer the World Cup due to two inopportune falls that have relegated her to third place, but the future is exciting for her! We are convinced that this is just the beginning of a promising career for this future Murcia lawyer of just 22 years.

In Trial, what am I going to tell you…!

On Off Road, we have revived a classic: Braktec sweeps the trial. More surprising news would be that one day some motorcycle without our product would reach the podium of GPTrial, or the Junior World Cup, or the World Cup. With this it is seven years (2012-2019) that Braktec is owner and sits atop the throne. Thanks also must go to the pilots Bou, Raga and Emma Bristow.


The Enduro Came, Saw and Conquered

The novelty, yes, has been the Motocross. The new system designed by Braktec was released in 2019 undergoing training only for the Spanish Championship. The idea was to test the product on this stage. The test has become the achievement of the competition with Jezyk. In addition, the pilots have competed in only some tests of the European competitions that has already earned them a fourth-place finish.

As if that were not enough, the Spanish team of the Six Days of Enduro tested the brakes that had just been produced, and the result was that the captain of the national team, Ivan Cervantes, a “nobody” who has only won 5 World Cups, gave them a 9.5 out of 10 on average.


Absolute Kings of Side by Side

If we look in the field of four wheels, “for now” we only compete in the Side x Side category. And I say “just” because some car teams may be on the horizon….

In SxS we have swept. It is almost identical to that of Braktec in Trial. All competitions where a vehicle carried brakes produced in Sant Cugat have won with J.Juan systems. There is more. Famous pilots like Toby Price, Nasser Al-Attiyah, Nani Roma or Heinz Kimigarden have rated the performance of our systems through the clouds.

Let’s savor the joys of this 2019 with great satisfaction. These successes are not easy for us (you know well). Similar to the complications of production, competing is very difficult. Not only are we competing, but we are winning! Let us enjoy the successes and continue to strive for improvement to repeat them in the coming years.

Braktec conquers the full final podium in the World GP Trial Championship and it is already …

For another year, the final podium of the Trial World Championship has a common denominator: Bou, Fajardo and Raga (Montesa-Honda, Gas Gas and TRS), all equipped with Braktec brake systems.

Another year, which is counted by years of existence of Braktec, the best riders in the world opted for the reliability, safety and certainty of the brakes designed in the factory of Gavá by the engineers specialized in Off Road sector.

Specifically, 2018 has seen how the new CNC front caliper, commonly known as EVO, has been lifted with all the podiums since it was presented in Japan at the beginning of June.

Not completely happy with these exits, the engineering team is already evolving the front and clutch brake pumps to improve, if possible, the performances of both equipments, which then transpires in improvements to the motorcycles of customers and Trial users.
