Disc brakes and racing.

As of right now, you can use disc brakes in road races. See below message from our overlords, Cycling Australia.

Cycling Australia is pleased to announce that riders will be able to use bikes with disc brakes at club, state and non-UCI national championship level road races across Australia*, effective immediately.

Cycling Australia CEO Nick Green OAM said that the new stance on disc brakes will encourage and allow more people to get involved in racing, particularly at the local club level.

“Cycling Australia is taking a leadership role in the global discussion around disc brakes and look forward to seeing a positive effect on the Australian cycling landscape with this announcement,” said Green.

Cycling Australia actively works at all levels to remove barriers for people getting into cycling, and we believe this is another valuable step towards getting more people to give racing a go.” he added.

Following a comprehensive review and consultation with a number of other national cycling federations, including particular discussions with USA Cycling which has allowed disc brakes in racing since 2015, and cycling manufacturers, and feedback from our member state and clubs, Cycling Australia found that there was a need to respond to the changing nature of our sport.

“With the continued uptake of road bikes with disc brakes by our members, it’s important that Cycling Australia keeps up with industry’s progress and support those at the grassroots of the sport to participate,” said Technical Commission Chair Peter Tomlinson.

“We’ve seen a successful implementation at USA Cycling and at a UCI WorldTour level and there have been no reports of additional hazards being posed to riders.” He added.

As always, rider safety is paramount in any decision and Cycling Australia will continue to monitor developments nationally and internationally in the coming months around disc brakes.

Events excluded from using disc brakes:

  • Elite Road National Championships
  • Para-cycling Road National Championships (hand cycles are already permitted under current UCI technical regulations.)
  • U23 Road National Championships
  • U19 Road National Championships
  • Subaru National Road Series events

*non-UCI national championship level races including Masters Road Nationals and Junior Road nationals.
