MacAskill to Magura

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.”

MacAskill’s Drop and Roll Tour takes trials riding on tour in Europe this summer, including a stop at the Riva Bike Festival on the first weekend of May.

So much, so average press release – but it gives us an opportunity to play this again, so we’re not going to complain 😉

  1. He’s not doing that on my set of Maggies! I don’t think I can lock the wheel even if I try.

  2. ….the fence is pretty good mind……

  3. I’m sure that’s exactly what ‘he’ said. Rather than I’ll take those free brakes ta.
