Magura USA MT7 Next Disc Brake $235.00
Battling the 3rd law.
They say that what goes up must come down, and while we agree that's true, with the Magura MT7 Next Disc Brakes you have all the say you want in just how fast gravity does its job. It loads you up with four pistons and four brake pads for next-level stopping power with meticulous modulation. High-end brakes are nothing new to the German dirt-hounds at Magura—the company has been making mountain bike brakes as long as anybody, and the MT7's are built to be extra light, without compromising on power, so you can stop on a dime when you take an accidental turn off of the slick rock that leads you to an unwelcome and heart-palpitating drop.
Carbotecture SL housing wraps the brake body, which uses a superlight and strong composite reservoir to save weight, and was cribbed from Magura's MT series. A lever made of forged aluminum weighs almost nothing and has a highly ergonomic design for easy use with one or two fingers, and has tool-free bite-point and lever throw adjusters so you can dial in the braking setup of your dreams, so you don't lock up your brakes without fully intending to.
Best of all is the four-piston forged alloy caliper. Inspired by Magura's killer motocross and superbike brakes, it uses individual brake pads for every pistion--that's four brake pads, if you weren't counting--which gives you unparalleled modulation and stopping power. The setup also employs Magura's magnetiXchange system, which uses a high-power magnet for pad retention, meaning the pads are easy to swap when they need to be replaced. The M7 is also designed to run on Magura's Royal Blood mineral oil, which is highly resistant to overheating and easier to use than standard brake fluids.
