In April, Rever launched their MCX mechanical disc brakes for the cyclocross crowd, offering a budget option that still provided the performance boost of both pads moving inward simultaneously. We’ve posted our first impressions of those and a long term review is coming soon.
Now, they have a mountain bike version coming that’s optimized for the cable pull found on flat bar levers, and they’re bringing it to market with an impressively light machined lever as part of the package. Stop in for details and weights…
The MTN1 calipers get different ramps to adjust cable pull for mountain bike levers. They used larger steel balls on the cam plate creates more power by pressing harder against the pad, and they provide more immediate response because they also move the pads inward faster.
Pads are top loading for quick changes.
The MTN1 will retail for $165 per wheel and comes with everything you need to set it up. That includes the lever, which is just 67g each. spins on a plastic bushing. The caliper acts as the return spring to keep it simple and light. Apparently, a lot of people were loving on the levers, so they may start selling those separately down the road.
