Brake shoe

That part of the brake system, located at the wheels, upon which the brake lining is attached. There are usually two shoes (curved or arc-shaped pieces) in each wheel. When the wheel cylinders are actuated by hydraulic pressure they force the brake shoes apart and bring the lining into contact with the brake drum. In this way the vehicle is slowed or stopped. On a bicycle, it is the metal part that holds a brake pad and is bolted to the end of a brake caliper.
See also double leading brake shoe, forward brake shoe, leading brake shoe, primary brake shoe, primary forward brake shoe, reverse brake shoe, secondary brake shoe, self-energizing brake shoe, single leading brake shoe, trailing brake shoe.
