In not entirely surprising news, top Scottish trials rider Danny MacAskill has signed to Magura brakes.
Magura has long had a significant foothold in the trials market, producing hydraulic rim as well as disc brakes. Of the switch, MacAskill says:
“Brakes are a massive part of Street Trials. There is no compromise for me. I place a lot of trust in my brakes and push them to every limit. I need to rely on my brakes no matter what the conditions are, that is why the Drop and Roll team and I are running Magura and looking forward to a constructive future together.”
So much, so average press release – but it gives us an opportunity to play this again, so we’re not going to complain 😉
