So I understand that disk brakes are superior to rim brakes and this leads to faster stopping particularly in wet weather.
I have wondered though, in wet conditions when you wish to stop as fast as possible doesn't the superior stopping effect of the disks result in the tyre losing traction ? At some point the benefits of being able to stop the wheel moving is presumably overcome by the tyre being unable to maintain traction on the road surface.
I'm assuming a decent quality tarmac surface and commuter type tyres on a day that is wet enough that rims and rim brakes would be compromised to some extent.
I realise there are a ton of variables here but I presume somebody has looked into this and I was curious to know.
