- New from Magura, the MT Trail Sport Disc Brakes!

- New HC blades feature a flattened off, more finger-friendly rear section.
- Flip-flop lever design means they're suitable for either left or right hand usage.
- Reach adjustment is taken care of using a 3mm allen key.
- Forged aluminium calipers mean there is only material where it's needed, helping keep weight down despite their impressive power.

Supplied as a 'Trail' brake for mountain bikes with the 4-piston caliper on the front and a 2-piston caliper on the rear, these can be switched to make them more suitable for trials (the configuration preferred by riders such as Ali Clarkson. If you would like us to do this for you, use this item from the Workshop when placing your order.

- Post Mount caliper style makes setting up the brake easy, and is compatible with both Magura and Hope Post Mount caliper to IS mount frame/fork adaptors.
- Kevlar reinforced hose attaches to caliper with a banjo bolt, making it easy to tuck the hose as out-the-way as possible on the bike.
- Supplied with mounting bolts, spare olives and spare disc hose inserts.
- NOT supplied with rotors or adaptors.
- Weight - Front: 246g. Rear: 236g.

We have made a disc brake guidance and information sheet which will be very useful if you are not experienced with disc brakes (or even if you are!). We strongly recommend having a look over it before fitting your new brake. This can be downloaded here.

Important Information:

To correctly fit the lever to the handlebar, the bolt with the arrows pointing towards it must be gently tightened first until the gap is closed, then the other bolt should be nipped down. Do NOT tighten this bolt right down, normally there will be a gap of around 2-3mm when the lever is tight on the bars. Over-tightening the bolts or not following this procedure is likely to crack the lever clamp and this is not covered under warranty.

Overall great

Posted by Clifford

I have only used them for a couple rides. I have tried a million brakes. They are good, and reasonably priced. I would recommend them for more interdisciplinary riders who want the best of everything. These are the pros and cons I have noticed.. Pros: -Weight, they are about 100 grams lighter than Shimano XTs -Great for barspins/no handed tricks. This is the main reason I bought them. The internal reservoir design gives a nice flat top to the lever which doesn't cut up/bruise your hands, and the square shape lever blade prevents accidentally squeezing the trigger on catching. The shape actually makes them easier than being brakeless as there is a very large surface to catch making it nearly impossible to miss. -Flexible hoses: Much more flexible than shimano, good for dropping bike/twisting -No pad jiggle: This is important! Many/most brakes the pads aren't designed to work going backwards. In trials this is a must, even on a basic pogo you are back braking. Not having that jiggle gives a much more solid controlled feel, and prevents the pads from sliding around and grinding the pistons. -Easy to bleed once you get the trick. Other brakes often feel spongy even after a good proper bleed, and require to be re-bled. These will work perfect once you get the technique. -Great modulation, very good for manuels/precision power/predictable -Very rigid: The carbon levers flex very little giving it a really solid feel. -Magnetic pads are awesome and make installation easier. -Cosmetically very nice looking and color customizable. -Diagonal banjo: Ideal for getting the exact right hose angle. -4 piston/2 piston mix is very good idea. Allows rider to choose where they want modulation Cons: -Not much bite even on the 4 piston. Compared to a Shimano or Sram there is little bite, you can get power but you have to squeeze for it. Not ideal for trail riding, or pure trials, will get forearms soar quicker. -Not quite as much power as a shimano or sram of the same level. Around 5-10% less. -No contact adjustment. For a high end brake contact adjustment should be a given. This gets the perfect balance of rotor rub / fast engagement. -The carbon lever is probably weaker than aluminum. Not ideal for bike chuckers/crashers

Hi Clifford - thanks for the detailed review!
We're glad you like your new brakes. If you're looking for ways to increase the bite of the brakes, we strongly recommend paying close attention to centralising the pistons. If they aren't engaging equally and evenly across the rotor, there's a really noticeable drop off in bite and performance. If you want any tips for how to do this, you can follow the Hope video guide. It's based around a 2-piston setup there, but the same principle applies for a 4-piston caliper. Spending a little extra time on this step of brake setup really pays off!
