Even though the MT4s are already some of the smoothest, most powerful, and most reliable brakes on the market, the German engineers at Magura found room for improvement, and thus created the Magura MT6 Next Brake. First, what's "next"' To make the Next generation better, Magura's original MT brake platform was scrutinized top to bottom. Magura's engineers kept materials consistent, including the proprietary, injection-molded CarboTecture master cylinder, because CarboTecture is insanely light, strong, and reliable, and it finds perfect application here, and the CarboTecture SL used in the MT6 and MT8 models is even more so across the board. For Next, the housing and the piston itself were refined to be even lighter, stiffer, and more efficient in movement for greater control and consistency. The master cylinder also retains its radial (perpendicular to the handlebar) configuration, because that affords the best modulation and sensitivity for the lever. The hardware of the lever pivot, however, has been simplified to improve reliability, reduce weight, and it's been moved 20mm closer to the handlebar, increasing leverage for even greater feel and control. Like the MT4, the 6s get some of the lightest and most comfortable alloy levers in the game. The MT6's calipers are where we find the major upgrade over the 4s, however. The two-piston caliper is forged into an even lighter, stronger shape than the 4's, saving a bit of weight and making the system more reliable. The brake pads are still top-loaded, too, for easy swapping, and any previous MT brake pads will work with the new calipers. But for the Next series, Magura engineered a new compound that increases friction, reduces noise, and prolongs pad life. As opposed to the MT2's fixed system, the MT4, 6, and 8s' caliper hose banjo is adjustable, to make it easier to route the brake's hosing, no matter where on the frame the caliper is installed. Finally, the MT's bleed plug has been reinforced to be more difficul...

The bighorn sheep is the mammalian symbol of Colorado Parks and Wildlife and Colorado's official animal. Colorado is home to the largest population of the species anywhere. The animals are five to six feet long with a tail three to six inches in length.
