Retrofitting with the HC Carbon Lever
Why do so many bike professionals take part in competitions without gloves? Most of the body‘s tactile and feeling receptors are at the fingertips – around 150 per square centimeters. The fingertips don‘t miss a thing: pressure, vibrations or surface structure. In extreme situations, the optimum point of contact between the finger and the brake lever can make all the difference between winning or losing.
MAGURA‘s new product tuning program, #customizeyourbrake, the right lever is found riders needs!
The latest lever evolution is the HC 1-finger Carbolay® lever. Compared to the 2-finger brake lever, the new HC carbon lever is 16 mm, 10 mm shorter than our previous lever, and offers a bigger contact area for the fingers. Complex carbon processing also gives the lever a high degree of stiffness at a lower weight.
The lever is manufactured in a complex textile carbon embroidery process. This slices away another 26 g in weight compared to the HC aluminum lever (two levers). And as usual, the lever can be adjusted simply to your finger length or personal preferences (+/- 25 mm).
The following disc brake models can be retrofitted with the new HC 1-finger carbon lever: MT6, MT7, MT8, MT Trail Carbon.
Riders can choose from a total of 5 lever models at #customizeyourbrake: 1 or 2 fingers in aluminum or carbon with the HC3 lever delivering the maximum adjustability.
Weight: 12 g per lever Price: $125.00 ea.
