Sea Otter Tech: Magura brakes

Magura was showing off its MT8 brakes – that’s Mission Team for those of you keeping score at home – and it sets the bar for lightweight performance. The whole master cyclinder is made from injection molded carbon fiber. Even the clamp is carbon. The lever is carbon fiber as well. At 53 grams per complete brake lever, it certainly won’t be slowing you down on the race course.

Also available are MT2, MT4 and MT6 versions, all sharing the carbon master cyclinder at different price points.

The calipers feature Magura’s double arch design and easy pad replacement.
