Magura revamped their MT brakes in 2014, and they increased power throughout the lineup, and added two new four-piston systems, the MT5, and MT7. The four-piston MT5 brake is moderately light (380 g w/ 180mm rotor) and extremely quiet, with excellent modulation and power and resistance to heat, drag and squeal, and retails for $200 (w/o rotors), making for an outstanding performance oriented package.
MT NEXT Brakes
The new MT NEXT series of brakes consist of the two piston MT2, MT4, MT6 and MT8, and the four-piston MT5 and MT7. The gravity oriented four-piston brakes utilizes technology and design that came from their development of their motorcycle brakes. With this new series, they increased the mechanical leverage ratio progressively for enhanced deceleration power from the base MT2 model to the top of the line four-piston MT7.
