Magura’s Marta has been round for a very long time, but now it’s advanced into a proper trail brake, not
only a lightweight race stopper.
Magura updated the Marta lineup with some new improvements for 2009. The upgrades include a
redesigned caliper and reservoir body, a greater lever pivot, and the usage of the larger Louise pads. The
new reservoir physique comprises a brand new bleeding system, that's drastically easier to use.
The one-piece calliper design is far stiffer, which supplies impressive energy on a par with the heavier
Magura Louise brake.
A 25 % larger reservoir improves efficiency in excessive-heat Alpine situations too, while new lever
mechanics pull the pads farther from the rotor for more mud clearance and fewer noise.
Straightforward Bleed Technology (EBT) makes bleeding a breeze (lucky because the equipped hoses are
notably lengthy), reliability is great and the lengthy levers cope with any shifter arrangement.
Lever feel is abrupt and wood though, there’s no bite regulate and pads need cautious bedding in to cease
them vanishing quickly. Lighter than average weight doesn’t compensate for the high value either.
I've been utilizing Magura Marta SL brakes for a few years, and had all the time been happy with the brakes,
however I at all times wished a tad extra power and modulation. Magura revamped the Marta line in 2009,
after which sweetened the pot with a lighter version utilizing solid magnesium. The brand new brakes have
met my expectations after which some!
