Included in the lineup of brakes which are released by Magura for 2012 is the so called MT8. Aside from the all-inclusive use of the most excellent materials, the MT8 also extensively applies FE analysis, making it a top of the line model that offers a perfect balance of stability and weight.
For its brake lever, the MT8 uses the newly developed carbotecture SL. Through a new form of Carbolay process, its carbon clamp and lever maximize its top strength while reducing the weight. Weight is furthered reduced by the aluminum bolts.
In order to make the price as low as possible, the 2012 Magura MT8 Brake uses carbon fiber which reduces its weight at the same time. The large surface area and open design of the brake caliper allows for an outstanding heat release. With the 160 Storm SL rotor included, this MT8 weighs in at only 278g.
