Description

Battling the 3rd law.

What goes up must come down they say, and while we agree that's true, with the Magura MT7 Next HC Disc Brake you have all the say 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 two wheel specialists at Magura, the company has been making brakes for longer than just about anyone, and the MT7's are built to be light, without compromising on power, so you can stop on a dime when hitting blind turns and drops at warp speed on unfamiliar terrain.

Carbotecture SL housing wraps the brake body, which uses a super light and strong composite reservoir to save weight, and is used elsewhere on Magura's MT series. The new 1-finger HC lever is made of forged aluminum and its highly ergonomic design provides tons of power and modulation with tool-free bite-point and reach adjustment so you can dial in the braking setup of your dreams and have total control over the ergonomics.

Best of all is the four-piston forged alloy caliper. Inspired by Magura's killer supermoto brakes, it uses individual pads at every piston, for a total of four brake pads per caliper, giving you unparalleled modulation and stopping power. The setup also employs Magura's magnetiXchange system, which uses high power magnets for pad retention, meaning the pads are easy to swap when they need to be replaced. The MT7's also actuate with Magura's Royal Blood mineral oil, which is highly resistant to overheating, easier to use than standard brake fluids, as well as being better for the environment.

Huge let down

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these brakes in hopes of upgrading to a high end brake, but they have been a disappointment from the start. First off, they are nearly impossible to align. The 4 separate pads cause major alignment issues. I ended up having to take it to a bike shop to see if they could figure it out. After a few days they got them aligned and gave me my bike back. The first thing I noticed was when riding the contact point adjustment screw CONSTANTLY backs itself out and changes the contact point on the brakes. I ended up having to loctite the screw in place. Even with the adjustment screw locked in place, I notice a constant change in the catch point. On longer descents with a lot of braking, the lever drops almost to my bars, but then after a few minutes returns back to where I have it adjusted to. The next thing I noticed is the pads are ALWAYS going out of alignment and dragging. After about two rides they started to slightly rub again. Now after about 5 rides my wheel will spin about one revolution before the drag from the brakes stops the rotation. The last downside I've noticed is these are the noisiest brakes ever. They squeal horribly no matter what and it's incredibly annoying. All in all these brakes are not worth the money in my opinion. I'm hoping I got a defective brake or something, because they are a horrible option for their price range.

And the worst part is I gave them the benefit of the doubt and rode them for about 2 months before deciding I HATED them, and now I can't return them and I am stuck with them. Hopefully after I buy another brake I can sell this one to somebody else.
