FAQ - Eliminating noises on rimbrakes

If your disc brakes make a noise during braking, we recommend the following measures to eliminate the various causes.



Check if the wheels, hubs and axles are mounted correctly:

Make sure, that the wheels are mounted correctly, and that the hubs and axles are mounted without any free play. Also check the spokes for the correct tension.

Check screws and bolts for the correct torque:

Make sure, that all surrounding screws are torqued to the correct torque. Please use the torque for each mounting Option. (in direction of travel)

MAGURA Evo Mount: upper right 6 Nm, lower right 6 Nm, upper left 6 Nm, lower left 4,5 Nm. 

MAGURA Easy Mount: upper right 4 Nm, lower right 4 Nm, upper left 4 Nm, lower left 4,5 Nm. 

Align the brake pad height

Align the brake pad to the rim. Check our Youtube Videos for detailed instructions: https://www.youtube.com/user/MAGURAPassionPeople


Check the rim and brake pad wear 

Make sure that both surfaces aren´t worn out.



The coefficient of friction is subject to changes caused by dirt on the rim or brake pad. The changed friction value can lead to vibrations, resulting in noise. Clean the rom thoroughly with methylated spirits, hot water, a soap solution or brake cleaner. When lubricating the chain or other bike parts, please make sure that the brake disc does not come into contact with oils or greases.


Bed-in process:

Don´t forget to bed new rims and pads in before use.


Upgrade your rimbrake with a brake booster

A MAGURA brake booster (Art.Nr.: 0721907) stiffens the brake and eliminates noises.
