Description of Magura RT8 TT Brakes

In 1987, MAGURA invented the first hydraulic braking system for mountain bikes. 25 years later, the world market leader had taken its experience in hydraulic rim brakes to the road. Working together with aerodynamics expert Cervélo, Magura had introduced one of the world's lightest and fastest hydraulic rim braking systems for the road, the Magura RT8 TT (TT for Time Trial). The motto was: "Aerodynamics by Cervélo, Hydraulics by Magura". Their braking power and modulation set new standards for triathlon and road bikes. This allows effective speed management both on the descent and before curves. This way, cyclists are able to gain crucial seconds.

Speed management à la MAGURA: The one who brakes later stays fast longer.
As a hydraulic rim brake, the RT8 TT has a crucial advantage over comparable mechanical braking systems: Friction losses are considerably lower allowing greater efficacy. This feature allows optimal control. Apart from this, only the slightest of touches is required to produce a high braking power.

The RT8 TT combines rapid deceleration with the best possible modulation therefore providing ideal speed management. On descents, the cyclist can brake later and more precisely therefore gaining crucial seconds in those few meters before the curve. Magura's slogan for the RT8 TT is also: "Seconds make the difference!"

Light construction without compromises.
The RT8 TT is designed for minimal weight: The carbon brake levers save precious weight, as do the light and extremely stiff aluminium brake bodies. The result of the collaboration is one of the lightest hydraulic racing bike braking system on the market at only 549 grams.

Maintenance-free and light ergonomic construction.
The RT8 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 27 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 RT8 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.
The ergonomically formed carbon brake lever and the exceptional modulation of the RT8 allow perfect braking, even for cyclists with small hands. They provide the best braking control for the cyclist and thus also a feeling of security. The RT8 also converts the very slightest of touches to high braking power. It is therefore also ideally suited to the needs of the female cyclist taking part in road racing events.
