Magura's MT6 Next HC Disc Brake slots in its competition series lineup which is reserved for brakes that blend smooth modulation, powerful performance, lightweight build, and reliability into an attractive package that performs as well at scrubbing speed as it is a beauty to behold. What's new about the HC is the highly polished chrome finish and the new one-finger lever that significantly improves the ergonomics and braking performance.
As a carryover from Magura's top-tier brakes, many materials remain consistent, including the proprietary, injection-molded CarboTecture SL master cylinder. It's very lightweight and durable, often fairing very well in bar to trail impacts making it a perfect application on the MT6. Careful attention was placed on the stiffness and tolerances of the brake housing and pistons to further lighten up the setup and create the proper tolerances that leads to a more powerful, reliable, and better modulating brake. Borrowed from motorcycle braking technology, the master cylinder gets a radial (perpendicular to the handlebar) configuration, as it creates the best modulation and improved sensitivity at the lever. The hardware at the lever pivot is simplified to improve reliability while dropping grams and is relocated 20mm closer to the handlebar, again increasing leverage for even greater feel and performance. The newly updated, 1-finger HC aluminum lever provides better lever feel as well as impressive modulation and the power needed for the modern trail rider.
What has remained the same are the calipers and the forged, two-piston unit is designed to be light and stiff for a positive response. The brake pads are top-loaded for easy swapping, and any previous MT brake pads will work with these calipers. The caliper's hose banjo is adjustable, making it easier to route the brake's hosing at an angle that best suits the caliper's location. Finally, the MT's bleed plug is reinforced to decrease the chance of damage in the event of a crash, ensuring that the MT6 might get swapped out for a few new bike builds.
The Magura MT6 HC Next Brakes come in a Black/polished color scheme, and one caliper/lever set weighs approximately 225 grams. They come individually, in left- and right-hand variants, so please order one of each if you'd like a complete set. The calipers are post-mount style, and the brakes do not include rotors or adapters.
