SwissStop takes stopping things seriously, which has been apparent for years from their strong presence in brake pads, but their designers took it to the next level when designing the SwissStop Catalyst Disc Rotor. While normally we think of a catalyst as starting something, this product is built instead for stopping things with strength and stiffness beyond the brakes of the past. SwissStop's engineers dumped massive amounts of research, development, and time into the creation of the Catalyst rotor. They started in early 2015 when they conducted a series of lab tests on brake rotors, followed by digital models to simulate heat and structure, and analysis of airflow. All of this technology might sound like overkill, but it landed them at their final design that outperforms the competition in nearly every measurable category from braking force when dry and wet to temperature and consumption rate. The rotors are constructed with an alloy spider that helps heat dissipate quickly and minimize weight, and steel rotors that stand up to sudden stopping needs at high speeds. SwissStop took special care to design the rotors without 90-degree angles, so they are accepted by the UCI for road competition.

Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
