The challenge facing Magura’s development department in Germany was clear and concise, to build the world’s fastest brake for the road. It had to be extremely light, provide greater braking power and yet still be capable of exact and smooth control.

It also sets new standards in terms of aerodynamics for Triathlon and Time Trial machines. In order to triumph here, Magura brought on board the Canadian bike manufacturer, Cervélo, for its exceptional expertise in aerodynamics. After more than one and a half-year of intense development, Magura had now created the braking revolution for Triathlon and Time Trial.
The RT6 TT is a completely maintenance-free braking system and is unaffected by dirt, dust and water. With the help of the hydraulics, changing the brake pads is relatively simple compared to cable brake systems. Numerous patents and 25 years of MAGURA expertise in the field of hydraulic rim brakes underpin the new innovative braking system. Thanks to the clever "quick release" mechanism, the wheel change takes only a moment. The brake lever set-up is also uncomplicated. Of course, the RT6 TT uses MAGURA Royal Blood mineral oil.
In contrast to the often-used DOT braking fluid, it doesn't have to be exchanged and there are no health concerns. Nevertheless, should it be necessary to bleed or to shorten lines, this can be done quickly and simply. MAGURA also provides a five-year warranty covering oil loss from the line.
About Rim Brakes
Rim brakes for bikes use the sidewall of the rim to reduce speed, this is done by a pad on either side applying friction against the rim, which reduces your momentum. Road brake callipers have been redesigned over the years and now use a system called 'dual pivot' which means the brake arms pivot off centre to apply a higher amount of pressure on the rim to increase your stopping power. Most manufacturers use dual pivot callipers on the front and rear, but some Campagnolo brakes use a traditional single pivot on the rear to 'balance' the braking power, the logic behind this is that as you brake your weight shifts on to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking force is applied to the front.
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.
