- Magura MT6… not very good?
I have a set that came fitted on my new bike. Both have been weak from the start and now the rear has given up the ghost. After bleeding it four times it’s gone back to the distributor, Zyro. I’m thinking of getting something more dependable, possibly a Hope set. Anybody else had problems with the MT6?Posted 3 years agocoolhandlukeSubscriber
Odd, all my Magura brakes have been spot on.
My 2006 Magura Louise FR brakes function perfectly when they were on the “Alp” bike for the last 4 years running in the Alps or Andorra when all other brakes in the party were suffering dreadfully (mainly Shimano)
My Louise BATS from 2010 have been faultless too.
Not sure of the more modern Magura brakes though but I’d be surprised.Posted 3 years agomonkeyfudgerMember
Mine are absolute shite. First “set” (MT4’s) had no power and wore out the pads at an alarming rate (probably ‘cos I was dragging the brakes everywhere desperately trying to stop) after about 2 months the rear master cylinder failed resulting in the lever pulling right to the bars at random times with no warning. They were sent back to Magura who replaced both master cylinders and pads, turning ’em into MT6’s. Power was now slightly better but still seriously lacking compared to Elixirs/Juicy’s/Hope M4’s and they’re not even in the same game as Codes. Pads wore out again at a stupidly quick rate so I replaced ’em with aftermarket sintered, (invalidating any warranty, Magura will not allow use of sintered pads) braking is now borderline acceptable but still pretty woeful.Posted 3 years agosuburbanreubenMember
Mine were shite; no firmness even when sent back to Mike for bleeding.Posted 3 years ago
Very disappointed given that my Martas have always been perfect.
The MTs have been subject to a recall: http://www.bikeradar.com/mtb/news/article/magura-recalls-mt6-and-mt8-disc-brakes-36639/
