As a hydraulic rim brake, the RT8 TT has a crucial advantage over comparable mechanical braking systems: Friction losses are considerably lower allowing greater efficiency. This feature allows optimal control. Apart from this, only the slightest of touches is required to produce a high braking power. The RT8 TT combines rapid deceleration with the best possible modulation therefore providing ideal speed management. "On descents, the cyclist can brake later and more precisely therefore gaining crucial seconds in those few meters before the curve," MAGURA Head of Marketing, Götz Braun, explains. MAGURA's slogan for the RT8 TT is also: “Seconds make the difference!"
