ERGONOMICS IS EVERYTHING
Braking force and modulation – two things that are essential for a good brake. At MAGURA, however, we go one step further – to get the maximum performance from your brake, it must be adapted to your individual needs.
This is why we offer you five different ways of changing the ergonomics of your brake:
1-FINGER HC3, ALUMINUM
The HC3 lever was developed together with Danny MacAskill. It allows the rider to perfectly adapt the lever ergonomics to his or her own preferences. In addition to the lever width, the transmission ratio and consequently the braking force can also be adjusted – a true innovation in the mountain bike sector.
The settings options of the HC3 lever at a glance:
1-FINGER HC, ALUMINIUM
The ergonomics of the shorter HC aluminium lever are designed for riders who like to have their levers close to the handlebars and have only one finger on the brake. The weight is almost identical to the 2-finger lever. The 1-finger HC aluminium lever is the perfect choice for drivers who like "short and crisp" braking.
1-FINGER HC, CARBON (ab Modelljahr 2019)
The 1-Finger HC lever comes in a carbon version from model year 2019. The advantages are obvious: The lever is stiffer and lighter, which is especially interesting for weight-oriented drivers.
This is the big brother of the 1-finger HC aluminium lever. Its extra length and reduced curvature makes it particularly suitable for riders with large hands or those who like to have their levers further away from the handlebars. The extra length also provides greater leverage and helps to put the braking force where you need it – on the trail.
The 2-finger carbon lever has the same geometry as the aluminium version. It's characterized by higher rigidity and an extremely low weight.
MAXIMUM BRAKING PERFORMANCE
Even the strongest brake must first be able to apply its power on the trail. MAGURA brake discs and pads harmonise perfectly with your brake, because they dissipate heat reliably and deliver maximum braking power even under muddy and wet conditions – and all at low noise levels. You can choose between three different brake discs and pads to match your particular riding style:
STORM HC incl. ABE
The Storm HC brake disc is suitable for extreme, very demanding rides. Whether in the Downhill World Cup, at the trial shows of Danny MacAskill or at the Enduro World Series, the Storm HC will give you the best braking performance even with high loads. NEW: From model year 2019 on, the Storm HC has an ABE and can be used with all pedelecs and S-pedelecs (Germany only).
Weight-oriented XC riders in particular will be delighted with the 160 mm version of the Storm SL.2, which only weighs as much as a bar of chocolate: at 100 grams, it's the lightest model in the Storm SL.2 family. Even the 180 mm disc diameter version is also surprisingly light at 118 grams. Storm SL.2 brake discs are the perfect retrofit product for all bikers who value stable braking performance with low weight – like marathon world champion Annika Langvad.
The new two-piece Storm CL brake disc is designed for high braking performance at high loads. It is mounted to the hubs provided for this purpose by means of a center lock.
To be prepared for all riding conditions, you can choose between three different brake pads: "Performance", "Comfort" and "Race". Available for all MT brake models, these pads come with single linings or double linings for 4-piston callipers.
"PERFORMANCE" BRAKE PADS
These pads are suitable for all riders who are looking for excellent performance and a high level of durability. Whether on extended tours or on long bike park days, the "Performance" brake pads will always stop you safely.
"COMFORT" BRAKE PADS
"Comfort" brake pads are very interesting for riders who value the best possible modulation. Beginners especially will appreciate the good-natured braking behaviour and the long service life of these brake pads.
"RACE" BRAKE PADS
These brake pads really bite! They're designed to deliver the best possible braking power – in all conditions – and are recommended for racing aficionados and performance-oriented riders who need short deceleration times at high speeds.
Our tuning parts make an attractive brake even more pleasing to the eye. Give your MAGURA brake an individual look with our coloured clamps and cover kits – with 12 colours there's something for everyone!
Colour-match your brake calliper to your bike with our calliper cover kits. These kits are available in 12 different colours for all 2- and 4-piston callipers built from 2015 onwards.
These clamps attach the brake to your handlebar reliably and they look good too – the coloured clamps are an absolute highlight! Like the calliper covers, MAGURA also offers the clamps in six colours and three different materials.
Tip: Shiftmix clamps give you even more space on the handlebars – the brake and gear levers are mounted on only one clamp!
