Hidden in the back of the Magura's booth was their new four piston brake, which is primarily oriented towards the gravity crowd. The levers and reservoir were cloaked under some knitted covers, so we didn't get an opportunity to examine them.
The four piston brake uses four top loading organic pads, and much of its technology and design came from their development of their Motard motorcycle brakes. The pads sit in an asymmetrical manner on the pistons, and there is a small gap between them, all of which assist with better heat management and lower temperatures being transferred to the rotors. The four pad design allowed them to use a thinner metal backing and increase the resin material thickness, for superior longevity and improved cooling. The caliper is forged in a single piece, and the pads are held in place with magnets along with a retaining screw.
