About Disc Brakes
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.
About the Magura brand
Established in 1893. Magura have lead the way in hydraulic disc brake technology. They were the first company to produce a hydraulic rim brake with the HS33 and the first company to use a cast single piece caliper, the Gustav M which is now 10 years old and has been used by legends such as Tomac, Palmer and the modern brakes are being used by the likes of Liam Killeen and Tyler "Super T" Klassen. For 2007 Magura have introduced a completely new range of forks featuring a dual arch and the Maxle on their freeride fork.

Magazine reviews for Magura MT4 Disc Brake with Storm Rotor
Review from What MTB
Magura MT4 WMB
Despite the affordable price, the MT4 is Maguras most adjustable and trail friendly brake, and a firm favourite of our test team.
The basic Carbotecture composite lever body is a chunkier design that then MT8, but this means better support for the solidly anchored ally lever. The MT4 is the only brake in the Magura line up with Bit Adjustment Technology (BAT... yes, really, acronym fans). This technology is a small knob on the lever, and it gives a useful amount of adjustment to cope with big hands or blade on the bar set up preferences. There?™s an Allen Key reach adjust too. The calliper is the same distinctive one-piece, twin-bridged design as more expensive MTs, with easy pad access and better cooling than a closed top calliper. Maguras Storm rotors are particularly accurate and quiet running, with a wavy pattern to push mud off the pads in filthy conditions. Pad life is good and there?™s plenty of progressive power and it?™s much easier to control than the older and rather on/off Maguras. There?™s a dedicated UK service centre and a five year leak proof warranty on all Maguras too. Although generally excellent reliability means you?™re unlikely to use either. Just make sure you don?™t lose the nuts for the unique captured clamp bolts.
"An excellent feature list, assured reliability and consistent control for good money."
