The front brake (located on the right handlebar) is the least important.

Other than at very low speeds (under 10 km/h), always apply both brakes to stop.

The front brake provides about _____ of the total braking force under normal road conditions because the weight shifts forward during braking.

Use both brakes every time you slow down or stop. If you use only the rear brake for normal stops, you may not have enough skill to use the front brake properly in an emergency.
