New Product: Magura Brakes
The MT5 and MT7 get an upgrade to four-piston calipers
By Simon Stewart
Bike contributor Simon Stewart is on assignment in Sedona, Arizona, checking out Magura’s newest product. This is his first report on the latest evolution Magura’s MT brake line, which consists of six new models. The big news is Magura’s first-ever four-piston caliper for the MT5 and MT7 models. The design is a direct descendant of Magura’s motorcycle calipers and utilizes a unique four-individual pad system. The idea behind the one pad per piston concept is increased heat dissipation. Initial impressions after the first day of riding is that the new Mts are considerably more powerful than previous Magura brakes and offer excellent modulation. Further ride impressions to come.
