    Just two fingers; however there will always be panic situations where one tend to grab the lever with all the fingers which is not at all ideal since this could easily lock your wheels up resulting in a slide or fall.

    Trick is to practice and keep on practicing the two finger technique, so in case of emergency your intuition would be to use this technique rather than the handful.


    ATGATT !!!

    Always 4. My braking instincts are spot on so it hasn't been a problem of over squeezing the lever in a panic.
