Magura HS11 2017 (inc Evo2 Adaptors)

Product code: 11389


In stock

Magura HS11 2017 (inc Evo2 Adaptors)

- Magura have completely overhauled their HS11 brake.
- Featuring a brand new lever made from Magura's own composite material that makes the lever lighter and stronger than ever before.
- New bleed port system features a port located on the front of the brake lever.
- Fitted as standard with the same great sealing system that has been used on the brake previously, which still feature a class-leading 5-year leakproof warranty (subject to online registration on Magura's website).
- Supplied with a 2m long main hose (which can be easily shortened using the fittings supplied with the brake - Magura have advised that it MUST be done at the cylinder end as described in the manual to maintain your warranty) to fit all setups.
- Completely redesigned TPA (Turbo Pad Adjustment) system overcomes any previous issues - making the system harder to strip, and more effective in use.
- New "flip-flop" lever system means the levers can be used as either a right or left hand lever.
- Updated aluminium lever blade design features a more comfortable, ergonomic shape that feels great using either 1 or 2 fingers.
- Available in 4-finger lever blade versions. Please note that the 4-finger version of the lever blade offers a huge amount of braking power, so we highly recommend a brake booster and aluminium-backed pads if you like a stiff lever feel.
- Now comes complete with split bar clamp, meaning super easy fitting and removal with no need to take your grips off! Note: When tightening the bar clamp, ensure that the side of the clamp with arrows on it is gently bottomed out BEFORE tightening the other side of the clamp.
- Supplied fully bled with Magura Royal blood for smooth and faster brake feel.
- Slightly remodelled slave cylinders still offer great performance but now have a more contoured profile, and also have new protective cover around the hose connections to try and stop any damage occuring to them whilst riding.
- Supplied with Evo 2 Adaptors - the specific kit supplied with the HS11 is shown in the additional images for this product. These are for V-Brake posts, not 4-Bolt mounts.
- If you shorten the hose on this brake, we recommend doing it at the caliper end as the lever uses a barbed fitting.
- Sold singly.
- Weight: 290g

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.

Additional Information

Please note that the TPA adjuster is for adjusting the brakes as an emergency measure mid-ride should your pads wear down, it is not designed to be used to help set up the brake.

Over-tightening or over-adjusting the TPA assembly will cause it to break, this is not covered by warranty. If your brake is correctly maintained and set up the TPA adjuster will not break.

Important Information

Maximum torque for handlebar clamp bolt is 4Nm. Over tightening these bolts may cause the lever assembly to break and this is not covered under warranty.

When shortening the main hose, we recommend doing this at the lever end. You can re-use the barbed fitting so there is no need for extra parts as recommended by Magura. If you need any help with this please give us a call. You can also shorten the hose using a new shroud nut and an olive, which are available for purchase separately.

This brake is identical to the HS33 mechanically, just the length of the lever blade and the colour is different.



Dose this come with an adaptor kit for use with v-brake mounts. And also how do I select the lever for a back brake, or is it the same on each side.

Posted by james on 26/12/2010

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/12/2010

Hi James - The brake comes with the Evo 2 Adaptor kit, which is the kit you need to use the HS11 or HS33 brakes with V-brake mounts. Also, the levers have a 'flip-flop' design so you can use them on either side - they come with a long hose as standard so you can cut it down depending on whether you're using it on the front or rear. Thanks, Mark


Hi - Does this come with a brake booster?

Posted by brad on 22/02/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/02/2011

Hi Brad - The HS11 comes with the Evo 2 Adaptors shown in the 'Additional Images' for the brake. The Evo 2 kit has a booster plate specifically for use with V-Brake mounts. If you have 4-bolt mounts you won't need to use this kit and would therefore need to buy a booster seperately if you required one. Thanks, Mark


Sorry I forgot to add this to the last question does this come with brake pads?

Posted by brad on 22/02/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 22/02/2011

Hi Brad - The HS11 and HS33 brakes comes with the standard Magura Black pads. Thanks, Mark


Hi, Will my current bleed kit work with the new brakes? Are the bleed ports still M6? Thanks, Alex

Posted by Alex on 25/02/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 25/02/2011

Hi Alex - Your current bleed kit will work it fine - the slave fitting is still M6, and there's no threaded fitting at the lever. Thanks, Mark


Do the brake pads off a hs33 fit on this brake? Cheers Tom

Posted by tom on 15/04/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 18/04/2011

Hi Tom - They have the same cylinders, so you can use any HS33 pads on the HS11 too. Thanks, Mark

Reply from TartyBikes on 28/04/2011

Yes, however the adaptors can be tricky to fit, so we only recommend it for customers with quite a lot of experience with working on bikes. Thanks, Adam


hey tarty guys, if I buy a pair will I get two evo 2 adaptor kits or just one ?

Posted by Francois on 16/05/2011

Hi Francois - You'd receive two Evo 2 kits if you buy a pair. Thanks, Mark

Hi Josh - With the Evo 2 Adaptors, these brakes should fit fine. Thanks, Mark


Why is the HS11 cheaper than the HS33?

Posted by Scoox on 31/07/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 01/08/2011

Hello - The HS11 has a less expensive finish to the brake itself (hence it being the 'raw' black colour, rather than the sprayed silver finish of the HS33), and has less sculpted and contoured covers than the HS33. This is where the difference in price comes from - the actual brake itself, performance-wise, is the same. Thanks, Mark


Hello, if i currently have echo 4 bolt clamps can they be used on this brake or will i need to buy magura ones? thanks

Posted by Jordi on 14/12/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 15/12/2011

Hi Jordi - The Echo clamps work fine with these brakes. Thanks, Mark


Do you have to take the wheel off to fit the bakes to v brake mounts?

Posted by Niall on 05/03/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/03/2012

Hi Niall - You shouldn't need to remove your wheel to fit these brakes. Thanks, Mark


i bought this brake. My bike is Echo Lite but i have a problem with the mounting. Is it possible to mount it or i need some other parts ?

Posted by XeniuS on 27/04/2012

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/04/2012

Hello - You would need to use some 4-Bolt Brake Clamps to fit these brakes to your Echo. Something like the Magura 4-Bolt Clamps (Quick Find Code 000026) would be ideal. Thanks, Mark

Hi I have these brakes me and my friends cant seem to bleed them. Apparently their tricky to do them. Is there a video or can take me through it step by stem? Thanks Jordan

Hi Jordan - thanks for your question. These brakes come with all the mounting hardware you need to mount them to your bike, and would fit an Onza Rip 2010 just fine. Thanks, Flipp.

Marcell Schmalhorst

Would these brakes fit on the Onza Bird 2012? And how long are the brake hoses? Thanks.

Posted by Marcell Schmalhorst on 16/07/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 16/07/2013

Hi Marcell - yes, these brakes would fit an Onza Bird just fine, and the hoses are 2 metres in length. Thanks, Flipp.


I have a onza rip 2011 will these fit straight on? Not the most experienced mechanic so will take it to a mobile bike mechanic (although he doesn't specialise in trials bikes) how hard would they be to fit for me or him?

Posted by Jordan on 22/07/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on

Hi Jordan - yes, these will fit straight on to your frame/forks, and are easy to fit when you know what goes where. They can be a little daunting when you don't have experience with them, but fortunately, there's a step-by-step guide made by Magura themselves here. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Finley - fitting the adapters is not too bad at all. There is a step-by-step guide in the manual supplied by Magura here: http://www.magura.com/uploads/media/downloads/FELGEN_2011_E_01.pdf Thanks, Flipp.

finley wooller

Hi, I'm going to bleed my brakes using the bath method. It's well better. Would I have to empty the brakes of the fluid before I did this?

Posted by finley wooller on 13/08/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 13/08/2013

Hi Finley - emptying the brake of oil would be necessary as a water/oil mixture doesn't work well at all. It's also a good idea to do so if the brake is already water-bled just to clear out any gunk that may have built up/developed. Thanks, Flipp.

Marcell Schmalhorst

I bought this brakes, but I'm planning to buy a new frame with 4 bolt mounts, could i use this breaks without adaptors?

Posted by Marcell Schmalhorst on 26/09/2013

Hi Marcell - four-bolt mounts are designed specifically to run these brakes, though you will need some four-bolt clamps to replace your Evo2 clamps. Thanks, Flipp.

Hi Ciaran - thanks for your question. Yes, we are definitely able to do that. In fact we have a workshop item specifically for these instances! (http://www.tartybikes.co.uk/workshop/tartybikes_brake_hose_shortening/c34p11054.html) Add one of these to your basket with the brake and add the necessary details to the Notes field (what size bike, do you want the bars to be able to turn all the way around etc.) and we will do the work before it leaves us. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.


is this able to fit on the onza ska 2013 model?

Posted by george on 29/12/2013

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/12/2013

Hi George - thanks for your question. Yes, this brake will fit on your bike. You will need to remove the 4-bolt to Vee-brake adaptors, and use some 4-bolt hydraulic brake clamps. Thanks, Flipp.


Do you sell the back part that clamps it onto the bars? I can't seem to find it on here

Posted by Jamie on 03/01/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/01/2014

Hi Jamie - thanks for your question. Unfortunately we've not been able to get hold of any seperately. However, the Hope Tech bar clamp is the same size and will fit just as well if you need one. Hope that helps! Thanks, Flipp.


I want to buy the HS11 as a rear break for my e-bike. The brake cables on my bike travel inside the frame tube - close to the lever the is a hole in to which the cable is inserted, and it pops out close to the brake itself. Can the HS11 support this imstallation? can i disconnect the pipe from the lever/brake so route it through the tube?

Posted by Avi on 30/06/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 01/07/2014

Hi Avi - thanks for your question. This is definitely possible, though you will most likely need to re-bleed the brake afterwards. Doing all that without losing any fluid would be quite some feat! The only potential reason this could not be done is that the hole in the frame is not large enough for the diameter of this hose. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.


Will these fit at the front for a onza bird 2009

Posted by Will on 03/08/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 04/08/2014

Hi Will - thanks for your question. The brakes themselves would fit on the four-bolt mounts on the front of your forks, but the Evo 2 mounts will not. You will require some dedicated 4-bolt mounts to fit on those forks. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.


hi i have an inspired element 2013 would this be able to fit it also is it easy to fit and do i need to buy anything else thanks morgan

Posted by morgan on 23/08/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 26/08/2014

Hi Morgan - thanks for your question. To fit this to an Element 2013 you would need to use Evo2 Adaptors as the frame features vee-brake mounts and yes, they are quite easy to fit. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.


How far do each of the pads move with a full pull of the lever? I'm looking to get the maximum possible rim clearance while still allowing the pads to engage (it's for a unicycle).

Posted by Chris on 20/08/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 24/08/2015

Hi Chris - thanks for your question. Each of the pads move by around 6mm (6mm per side, 12mm total displacement) with a full throw of the lever. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Vittorio Martucci

Sono interessato acquisto di un freno Magura HS11 2011 Single - 4-Finger (with Evo 2 adaptors) che è disponibile sul Vostro sito. Gradirei sapere se sulla maniglia è applicabile il Magura Reed Switch cod. 0724801/2 in quanto il freno in questione è destinato al montaggio su una Ebike. Grazie e cordialità

Posted by Vittorio Martucci on 20/10/2015

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/10/2015

Hi Vittorio - According to Magura's website, the Magura Reed Switch is compatible with both HS11 and HS33 brake levers so I would assume it would be compatible. However, we have no experience with these so I couldn't say for definite, sorry! It seems they should work from the research we have done. Thanks, Mark

Brian  Carroll

Hi, I realize that the HS11's are currently out of stock, but I was wondering if they would fit on to the V-Brake mounts of an Onza Mini-Master with 18" wheels? Thanks in advance Brian

Posted by Brian Carroll on 08/08/2016

Reply from TartyBikes on 08/08/2016

Hi Brian - Theoretically they should fit fine as long as you use the Evo2 adaptors provided with the brakes. Thanks, Mark

Scott McRobert

What lever does this come with as the description states 2 finger lever and 4 finger levers? What is required for shortening the hose? Will it require being bled again after shortening I've head some brakes don't need bled after shortening. Really contemplating fitting these to the rear of my onza zoot would you recommend this set up on a zoot?

Posted by Scott McRobert on 06/03/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 07/03/2017

Hi Scott - These brakes are supplied with a 4-finger blade, but it's possible to use 1 or 2 fingers on it. I think that's possibly where the confusion has come from. To shorten the hose you'd just need a sharp craft/Stanley knife or some cable cutters, as well as an 8mm spanner and one of the hose olives supplied with the brake (these olives form the seal that stops them leaking). It's not a reinforced hose so should cut easily. If you're careful you shouldn't need to re-bleed the brake - just avoid spilling any mineral oil if possible! This brake should fit fine on a Zoot, although you may need to add a Trialtech Sport 2-Bolt Booster to it too to help stiffen the brake up and support the frame more. Thanks, Mark

Toby Race

Would these brakes fit a Onza Zoot 2013 model?

Posted by Toby Race on 01/05/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/05/2017

Hi Toby - These brakes should fit the Zoot fine. You may find that you'll need to use a brake booster to add some stiffness though, such as fitting the Trialtech Sport 2-Bolt Booster between the top two bolts of the Evo2 clamps. Thanks, Mark


Would this fit on a 2016 echo lite mk5?

Posted by Brogan on 29/05/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 30/05/2017

Hi Brogan - The brake itself would fit as long as you used a set of 4-bolt clamps to fit them, not the Evo2 Adaptor Kit supplied with the HS11s. Thanks, Mark


Hi, do these brakes have two callipers one on each side of the rim

Posted by David on 28/08/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 29/08/2017

Hi David - That's correct. They are supplied as one master cylinder/lever, with a pair of slave cylinders. Thanks, Mark

Matt Jones

Will these brakes fit a onza ska trials bike and is it worth paying more for the hs33 brakes.

Posted by Matt Jones on 31/12/2017

Reply from TartyBikes on 02/01/2018

Hi Matt - The HS11s would fit the Ska, although you'd need to purchase some 4-Bolt brake clamps to go with them as you wouldn't need the Evo2 Adaptors supplied with the brakes. The HS33s are arguably worth the extra price - you get more adjustment on the lever, the lever itself is stiffer and stronger and there are more spares available for the HS33. Thanks, Mark


will these brakes work on a zoo 20" rear wheel

Posted by luke on 05/03/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/03/2018

Hi Luke - The brakes themselves would work on your Zoo, but you would need some Magura 4-Bolt Brake Clamps to suit the frame itself. The Evo2 Adaptors supplied with the HS11s won't work unfortunately. Thanks, Mark

Posted by kieran on 24/05/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 25/05/2018

Hi Kieran - These brakes are supplied with the Evo2 Adaptors as standard, so if your bike has V-Brake posts then it has all the parts you'd need. If your bike has 4-bolt mount on the frame, you'd need to get some 4-bolt clamps (from our Brake Clamps section) to fit them. If you've got any more questions, feel free to ask! Thanks, Mark

Will these work on a onza t-pro? Thank you.

Posted by Thomas duggins on 02/08/2018

Reply from TartyBikes on 03/08/2018

Hi Thomas - You would need to get some 4-Bolt Rim Brake Clamps to fit them, but the brakes themselves should work on the T-Pro fine. The standard Magura 4-Bolt clamps work well - you can find them by searching for "Magura HS33 4-Bolt Brake Clamps" in the search box. Thanks, Mark

Jared Johnson

Posted by Jared Johnson on 24/09/2014

Reply from TartyBikes on 24/09/2014

Hi Jared - thanks for your question. This would fit on your bike, but you would need to use Evo2 adaptors for it to fit. The 4-finger option comes with them included, and that would be everything you need to get up and running. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Posted by jake meldoy on 31/10/2011

Reply from TartyBikes on 01/11/2011

Hi Jake - If you mean in terms of fitting it, there are two ways to go. Firstly, if you have V-Brake mounts on your frame then you can use the supplied Magura Evo 2 Adaptors. Alternatively, if you have a frame with dedicated 4-bolt rim brake mounts you'll need a set of 4-bolt clamps (such as Magura's own model, Quick find code: 000026). Thanks, Mark

Reply from TartyBikes on 06/02/2014

Hi Callum - thanks for your question. These brakes are great for one-finger braking, which is how almost every trials rider that has them uses them. They are also easy to set up to be more powerful than a cable brake, especially when using uprated pads. Hope that helps. Thanks, Flipp.

Reply from TartyBikes on 21/11/2016

Hi Brian - It's all good, don't worry about it! This brake is sold with a very long main hose, so it can be cut down for use either on the rear or the front. The lever can be used on either hte left or right side of your bars, so it's quite universal in that sense. Thanks, Mark

This brake is much like the new HS33 just got a bit of a longer lever blade, but the HS11s are such a good brake when set up perfect. Be careful not to over tighten the bolts and I recommend shortening the hose from the slaves not the lever.


brilliant brake

Posted by brad on 12/03/2011

if your looking for a new brake this is the one to buy i bought this brake last week it is brilliant i would never used another brake. Unfortunately when i recieved the brake i didn't recive the booster in the adaptor kit like i was told i would when i asked a question on this product and i have terrible flex in the frame. would it be possible if you could send me out the booster what i was told i would get when i purchased the brake.

Reply from TartyBikes on 14/03/2011

Hi Bradley - In the reply to your question, it was stated that "The HS11 comes with the Evo 2 Adaptors shown in the 'Additional Images' for the brake". If you check out that additional image it shows that the HS11 comes with the main booster/backing plate, but not the smaller booster supplied with the full Evo 2 Adaptor Kit. This is as the brake is supplied from Magura, and the only way we can supply the brake. If you'd like more information, please contact us at info@tartybikes.co.uk. Thanks, Mark

Hello - Thanks for the review, I'm glad you like the brakes!



Posted by Mark on 11/05/2012

Right out of the box when pulling the lever only one of the pads moves, when turning the "pad wear adjuster" knob on the lever only one of the pads adjusts. The opposite pad will only move in when the other one is held down. I mentioned this and was told when I shortened the hose and installed the brake it wouldn't be a problem, I did not shorten the cable, I installed the brake, don't see how shortening the cable will help this issue but installing it didnt help anything still the same problem. Also I have a ZHI 20" bike and with the slave cylinder pushed all the way in the non drive side crank arm cannot rotate because the cyliner is in the way ALOT. I find the lever to be majorly uncomfortably far from the handlebar as well. The decision to upgrade to this brake and get rid of my original "promax" v brake has resulted in a nightmare and my brand new bike has not been running in over a month, to anyone considering this I wish I stayed with the cheap cable v brakes they resulted in alot more happiness and alot more money in the bank, considering you NEED to buy additional clamps and booster since the adapter it comes with will not work on a 4 bolt frame.

Reply from TartyBikes on 11/05/2012

Hi Mark - Thanks for the review. To try and answer your points in order: 1. When adjusting the TPA, it's normal for only one pad to move. This is why you shouldn't use the TPA to set your brake up - moving the cylinders in to get your brake in the correct position is the correct course of action. 2. Pads not moving the same amount is normal, especially when new. Because of the way the hydraulic system works, it isn't possible for them both to move exactly the same amount when the system isn't in 'real' use. Once the brake has been used for any period of time they will also wear in so they should both move fine. 3. I'm unsure of the spec of the Zhi bikes as we don't sell them, but it sounds like they must be supplied with quite a short BB as standard if you're having clearance issues like that. It may be worth making sure your wheel's centrally aligned in your frame too - if the brake is only catching on one side then it suggests something may be offset/mis-aligned somewhere. 4. The lever reach is adjustable by using an allen key, and using the reach adjuster screw in the front of the lever blade. If you have any problems doing this, you can refer to the manual supplied with your brake. 5. If you have a 4-Bolt frame then you will need to buy 4-Bolt clamps to mount the brake. This setup is much better though, so upgrading to a hydraulic rim brake with the correct clamps is a good option in the long-term. You don't necessarily 'need' a booster for a lot of bikes too - many are able to work fine without.


bit hit n miss

Posted by ant on 24/05/2012

Got these for my bro's bike and set the front up using the 4 bolt mount. All went fine. Using the supplied Evo mount is hard work when fitting to a trials bike like the Onza Bird as I had to mod the booster to fit it and work (sort of) and it moves a lot. It needs to be wider, and a second booster is good too as the flex is unreal. Both have a sticky piston but they haven't bedded in yet so that could all change. Shortening the hose is a must as I chopped about 3 feet of the front and a foot of the back. If you are buying these to go on a mountain bike then they should be fine but for there rear of a mod they're a nightmare. Maguras fault to be fair, not Tarty's.

Hi Ant - Maguras are a tricky one. They're not really made as a trials brake, but they happen to work well for them! As a result, Magura make them to work with 'normal' bikes, so they come with relatively narrow Evo 2 Kits and long hoses as standard. It makes it a bit inconvenient but there's not really much of a way around it unfortunately. The pistons can also seem a little slow at first, but with a little use they free up a bit. If you do have any more long term problems with them feel free to give us a call - once set up they're nice and reliable, so hopefully it should be plain sailing from now on!


Perfect stuff

After setting them up the brakes work perfectly,very good brake power and sensibility. My Onza Zoot is now a new bike.
