Magura Release new CT Brakes for Multiple Disciplines

by 4

Magura has just released their new CT disc brakes they say are suitable for trekking, city riding and light MTB. Designed for all-road use (city, gravel, trekking, tours) Magura say the brakes can be used on e-bikes when paired with Magura E-Bike Optimized components (SPORT brake pads and MDR-P or MDR-C rotors).

There are a few variations available starting at €129.90. They will be available in early 2022.

The press release reads:

Proven Magura braking performance for maximum safety

The Magura CT’s newly developed axial master cylinder is made of Carbotecture, a reinforced high tech polymer that is light in weight but extremely resistant to impact and tearing. Carbotecture master cylinders have proven their worth and durability over many years in the MT and HS series. The Magura CT also has an enlarged expansion reservoir that reduces the risk of air being trapped in the system and ensures reliable long-term operation. Like all Magura brakes, it incorporates Easy Bleed Technology and uses environmentally friendly Royal Blood mineral oil as a brake medium. These features have a positive influence on handling, ease of maintenance and length of maintenance intervals.

The Magura CT uses proven 2-piston and 4-piston brake callipers from the MT model series. This means that it is available in three variations; CT5 with 4-piston calliper, CT4 with 2-piston calliper and CT4 FM with flat-mount calliper. Users can select the variation that matches their needs. The CT5 and CT4 both have high heat stability which ensures a constant, predictable braking power in high braking demands.

With the CT MAGURA expands its discbrake system

By using MT brake callipers, Magura not only shows that the callipers from the Bad Urach brake forge are still state-of-the-art but also opens up completely new possibilities. The new CT brake masters can also be retrofitted onto existing MT brake systems. With this mix and match approach, Magura offers its customers more customization options and at the same time conserves resources in the interests of sustainability.

Also following the system concept, Magura offers the optional E-Bike optimized kit for use on e-bikes. Because of their higher speeds and additional weight, e-bikes place a greater load on the brake systems and cause increased wear. The E-Bike Optimized kit includes durable, quiet SPORT brake pads with short bed-in times and reinforced MDR-P or MDR-C rotors, prevents premature wear and ensures constant braking performance even for bikes with electric power. Together with these components, the CT is ideal for use in e-bikes.

Easier and safer braking 

The ergonomic features and power leverage ratio of the Magura CT are perfectly matched to the requirements of city and all-road biking. With a clearly defined bite point, low manual hand force requirement and simple modulation, the CT assures riders a feeling of safety and absolute control in all situations, with or without electric assistance. The CT can be optioned with 2- or 3-finger lever blades depending on usage scenario and changed as needed, a typical Magura option and advantage.

Usage scenario: From City to Allroad

During the week you commute to work on your bike and on weekends like to go out riding with your family. Whether riding in town, trekking or enjoying light mountain trips, your bike can do it all and the Magura CT ensures safety and good control under all conditions: pavement, forest paths, city traffic, easy mountain trails or river routes.

    I wonder if the new flat mount calipers open up the possibility of shigura using Shimano road brifters.

    Magura – masters of ‘if it ain’t broke, pop some BNG on and send it out’.

    Means parts are nicely interchangeable when needed.

    Exactly. Same callipers, different levers makes a load more sense than the endless variations of sram/shimano.

    These look fairly-priced and useful. Liking the conformity of the different set-ups.
