Must have upgrade for Magura brakes
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have a set of Magura MT Trail brakes, and used them for a while before upgrading the levers to these, and yes, this is an absolute upgrade. Coming from multiple sets of one finger brakes (Shimano XT, SRAM Guide, Hope Evo) the 2 finger levers on the Magura brakes just felt clunky and like I couldn't generate enough power. I swapped these lever blades out (easy to do, just need a hammer and a punch) and what a difference. Ergonomically, much easier to set up, and they genuinely feel like they give the brakes more power because of the changed pivot point of the lever. Would highly recommend as an upgrade to whomever owns a set of Magura MT series brakes.
