Incredible lightness and powerful modulation are the hallmark of Magura's best-performing brake - the MT8 Carbon disc brake. Magura's innovative technology called Carbotecture is used to manufacture a super light carbon fiber lever, master cylinder and bar clamp. The brake's dual piston caliber is incorporated into a one-piece design for maximum stiffness, and offers automatic pad wear adjustment. Checking pad wear and replacing worn pads is a snap with Magura's top loading design, allowing pads to be changed without removing the wheels from the bike. The featherlight carbon 2-finger brake lever offers integrated reach adjustment, making it perfect for all hand sizes. The MT 8 brake arrives pre-bled and is backed by a 5-year leakproof warranty. Future brake bleeding is no sweat using Magura's Easy Bleed Technology (EBT), employing non-corrosive and non-toxic mineral oil. Hose routing is simple using the adjustable banjo fitting on the caliber. Sram Matchmaker compatible.
Engineered, designed and manufactured in Germany.
Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
