Brakes are critical components on many mountain bikes and E-MTBs – and more system weight, higher speeds and longer descents push them to their limits. Several competitors’ brakes failed during the braking power test conducted by the E-MTB magazine – but the MAGURA MT brake models achieved top marks!
ANOTHER PRICE / PERFORMANCE TOP TIP FROM MAGURA
"Extreme gradient – no braking effect"
Long braking distances and even complete brake disc failures – the scenario of the E-MTB laboratory and practical tests impressively illustrated the enormous challenges with which an E-MTB brake is confronted. Two MAGURA MT models performed brilliantly during the test. The attractively-priced MT Trail Sport model, for example, scored top marks, achieving a "Super" rating!
"(...) almost no fading – and this at a low weight. The low price for this high performance is also a winner – great for this amount of power!"
E-MTB verdict: SUPER
