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.
