Want to stop just like Danny MacAskill? Ok, even his signature brakes won’t allow you to do that, but they will allow you to get on the latest tech from Magura. During a recent interview, Danny told us a few of braking related issues that he runs into that normal humans would never experience. Because of that, he’s worked with Magura to develop his perfect brake – MT7 power with a lever that provides the level of control he’s looking for.

And now that Magura is bringing over even more technology from the moto side, the new HC3 lever looks better than ever – plus there’s a new Danny Mac video after the break…

In addition to the Raceline Yellow paint on the four piston caliper and Danny MacAskill signature graphics on the lever body, the lever blade is the point of interest here. Borrowing the HC3 technology from their motorcycle levers, it’s now available for the first time on a mountain bike. Magura says the HC3 design allows for users to choose between three different positions for the end of the lever blade which change the mechanical leverage ratio. This means the user can dial in the amount of braking force required to come to a complete stop and the lever retains the single finger design of their new single finger HC lever without HC3.

Looking quite burly, the segmented lever is a hollow aluminum construction that is mated to the current Carbotecture SL body. Total weight is said to be 375g per brake, and each set will come in a special aluminum gift box with two extra sets of 8.R brake pads in the box (8.P brake pads will be installed in the calipers). Pricing is set at $699.95 for the set, and with dealers limited to 2 sets each, these won’t last long!

Riiight…$700/set, cost on them is probably ~500 and you suspect an IBD will be forking over $1000 to sit on a couple pairs of brakes *hoping* someone with more money than sense comes through the door needing a pair of $700 brakes? I see that happening on the 5th of Never.

I see it more like this: Worldwide a few guys who spend more time tweaking bolts than riding buy a few sets hot off the press. The rest go for 40% off over at Competitive Cyclist, and the few shops that who were silly enough to take a shot at them end up dumping what they have on ebay and, after fees, take a small hit on them.

Looks like a neat brake. Good luck.

Another joke from Magura. They used to be great and for almost a decade I swore by them. But it was ages ago.

The retail price is off the hook! My dealer’s price per line seats around 130€ -$139- … so $700 for a brakeset with such a rate of failure NO THANKS.

I’m sure their great brakes and I seriously doubt Danny would be using them if they weren’t, but that price tag is pretty hard to get over. XT or SLX are such a bang for the buck with years and years of reliability behind them, I just don’t understand how some of this stuff ever gets past the drawing board. I’m glad it’s available, and I love reading about it and looking at it, but it’s another one of those products I just don’t “get”. I wish them nothing but success though and they do look great.

Spend the money if you want a great set of brakes. Spend $130 if you want something so-so. I promise, this is the best 4-piston brake on the market. The only brake that improves power and modulation as it gets hotter. Plus, look at it.P-I-M-P
