    Cannondale helix hydraulic disc brakes

    I'm having problems finding what I'm looking for so I'm starting a new thread on this...

    I can't find what Pads and rotors are usable on my cannondale trail sl 4.

    according to the cannondale site, in the specifications my bike has "cannondale helix 6 brakes" which i know are made by bengal after searching around for awhile...

    TRAIL SL 29ER 4 - Trail SL 29er - Hardtail 29er - Mountain - Bikes - 2013

    So I go to bengals website, and they make a helix 5 and a helix 7? Which pads do I need? I need a bleed kit also, which can't be purchased from the bengal website either...

    BENGAL

    any help would be appreciated... thanks!

    Well in theory stopping. But I doubt your riding hard enough to benefit from it ? Bigger brakes more stopping area, my stock brakes are very very good, and haven't had any fade yet. I'm 14.5 stone and don't have any issues with stock. Still, wouldn't mind bigger brakes lol
