I’m going Magura.
Wish me luck.
Yer gonna DIE!
if ya can't get used to the weird MT lever ergo, or stump up for the HC3 levers that is....
I have two pair of Louise BAT's on other bikes, still solid brakes, put pads in, bleed em every 2-3 years and good to go.
I was going to go MT7 before I ended up with the HopeV3's. The thing that stopped me was the original, then the first lever update - they suck. Supposed to be better now, and the HC3 lever looks the tits.
So, 7's, 5's or Trails?
New MT7. Buddy got them and they’re sweet.
HC3 lever, dude. You need them.
I've been on Shimano brakes forever, my m785 XT's have been on (6) different bikes now. I recently spent some time riding a new bike with the Gwin brakes and although they seem to have adequate power, it takes quite an effort to get it. You probably need to pull 30% harder than a comparable Shimano brake to get the same power. This was the case even after proper bed-in procedure and a few rides.
One set of brakes that I wasn't initially impressed with that I ended up actually loving was the Magura MT8. It's one of the most consistent-feeling brakes I've ridden. Only (slight) issue for me was the lever shape, I'm still heavily in the Shimano camp when it comes to lever feel.
That's a great idea, thanks! I tried it out on my XT m785 levers. Nice improvement on the rear brake in particular with the levers bent by around 10mm at the tip.
No problem i have xt levers and saint calipers. And it works great.
all my friends with Magura had problems with them in Morzine this summer ...
the old Magura's was great. the new ones... well...
Sold my TRPs for what I bought them for. Worth the experiment...
Saints are back on while I wait for my Maguras. With a 203 rotor up front.
What didn't you like about the TRPs? Not enough power for DH?
Long time shimano brake fan here, don't think I have run anything but for 15 years or so...That said I have been running M8000's on my 'enduro' bike and they kinda suck. I have been plauged by the inconsistent bite point you hear about since day one. As soon as the XTR 4 pistons drop I am all over those.
Still waiting for my MT7s...
One hopes they’ve sorted their problems. Call me a skeptic. I’ve used 2 generations of XTRs and they both suffered the same problems.
You gon die.
Not if I never ride... Fucking weather...
