The hydraulic brake cylinder is the device that controls and converts non-hydraulic pressure into hydraulic pressure.
The principle on which a hydraulic brake system works is simple. Force applied at one point is transmitted to another point via an incompressible fluid, called the brake fluid. Suitable for 9-inch hydraulic back-plates, this cylinder converts your foot-pedal force into hydraulic pressure that forces the brake fluid into the calipers. Subsequently, this pressure forces the brake pads to clamp the rotor and the slow down the vehicle.
