The T1 is lightest FR/DH Brake. Weighing in at 335 grams, the incredible braking power and precise modulation of T1 has earned an excellent reputation worldwide, and has resulted in numerous test wins.
2013 is further improvement to this brake with a Formula's Enhanced Caliper Technology (ECT) for higher piston rollback and easy caliper installation.It also features built in reach adjustment and Feel Control System (FCS) so out of the box setup is not an issue and on trail fine tuning can be done with ease. With the fluid reservoir increased by 25% and new diaphragm this has stopping performance.

ECT: Enhanced Caliper Technology
Bicycle disc brakes consist of a metal disc attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Brake calipers are attached to the frame or fork along with pads that squeeze together on the disc. The way it is attached to the bike will be either by IS (International Standard) which has two holes facing the disc or Post Mount, which has threads going into the fork. Disc brakes have been successfully used on motorbikes for decades, and are the principal choice there. The primary benefit of disc brakes is that they perform equally well in all conditions including water, mud and snow. This is due to their position closer to the hub and away from the ground and possible contaminants like water, which can coat and freeze on the rim in colder temperatures. The pads are usually made from metal sinters or an organic compound instead of rubber. Water acts as a lubricant to rubber but not metal, therefore disc brakes maintain their stopping power in wet conditions. They also avoid the problem that rim brakes have of wearing out the wheel rims, especially in muddy conditions, as well as the requirement that the rim be straight. Disc brakes offer improved modulation of braking power and generally require less finger effort to achieve the same braking power. The advantages of discs make them well-suited to steep, extended downhills through wet and muddy off-road terrain, common in freeride bicycle riding.
the high technology materials currently used enable the latest models of disk brake systems to be lighter and more compact than conventional systems. Evidence shows that, compared with a V-Brake, the latest models of disk brakes for bicycles have achieved: - a higher braking power, a high modulability, a high and constant level of performance, much higher reliability, no increase in weight, size and maintenance
