Magura MT8 Hydraulic Disc Brakes – Carbotecture
A new treat has leaked from Magura, its MT8 Hydraulic Disc brake system.
Magura has stated that the MT8 Hydraulic disc brakes are its lightest brakes to date. Development for this project took two years.
You might ask, “how did Magura make a light hydraulic disc braking system?” Magura used carbon fibers embedded in a thermoplastic matrix, known as Carbotecture. In the final step, Magura injects the materials using a Carbolay process.
The launch date for the Magura MT8 Hydraulic Disc Brakes is Spring 2011.
