The press release from Magura is a medley of mathematical marvels, including the assertion that 2+4=3, but read on and we’re assured that its designers really do know what they’re doing. Here are the stats:
Pistons: 2 at the rear, 4 at the front
Suitable for: Trail bikes from 120-160mm (27.5, B+ or 29 inch, depending on tyre size). Which is 3 different sizes, hence 2+4=3. Well, obviously.
Weight: 332g. Which for all you maths lovers is 15% lighter than the MT7, and 5% heavier than the MT8.
Materials: Carbolay carbon levers and Carbotecture SL brake lever housing. Deep-black shiny carbon finish on the handlebars and high-gloss chrome on the calipers.
Target Market: With the MT7 aimed at the XC rider, and the MT8 at the gravity market, the MT Trail is for pretty much everyone else in between. Touted has having the benefits of both, as a result of the different piston numbers front and rear, Magura are hoping that the MT Trail will be of interest to All-Mountain, Trail and that ever so fashionable Enduro market.
How Much: UK prices are to be confirmed, but prices will start at €579.
