Whether you're putting together your dream bike, or upgrading your trusty steed, looking for featherweight, reliable components are a good place to start, and we think that Magura's MT Trail SL Brake Set also make a pretty good place to stop. These feathery brakes find the balance we want between incredible calibration, intense braking power, precise modulation, and minimal weight. It all starts in the levers, which are ergonomically optimized for 1-finger braking, with HC carbon fiber construction that drops grams, while keeping rigidity a priority. The lever can be adjusted for reach, keeping your cockpit as comfortable as it is sleek. When it comes to stopping power Magura strategically builds the brake set with a beefy 4-piston front brake caliper, and 2-piston rear caliper, giving you the control you need to stop on a dime when unforeseen circumstances (see: moose mid trail) mean you need to lock your wheels, spin around, and book it in the opposite direction. Magura has been in the game for a while, since 1893 to be exact, so it knows the importance of details. For instance, the banjo fitting on the MT Trail SL caliper is one great example in its ability to pivot. This means that you'll be able to route the hose cleanly along frame no matter what the housing guide and mount configuration are. The forged aluminum caliper allows for a 1-piece design. This adds stiffness to an otherwise superlight caliper body. The pistons are made of thermoplastic, which helps to insulate the fluid from the heat generated in the brake pads. This improves the brake performance on steep, enduring descents. Changing pads has been made easier than ever since the calipers use a top loading design. This way, you're able to change pads without removing the wheel. The CarboTecture master cylinder is stiffer, lighter, and stronger than comparable parts made of aluminum or magnesium. In a truly inspired move, Magura created both sides the same. You're now able to run your levers on e...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
