Magura MT 4 Disc Brake front 160mm PM 6" (Storm)THE ALLROUNDER! The brake lever of the MT4 is manufactured from CARBOTECTURE®. As with the models toward the top end of the range, stability and rigidity are retained by using a greater capacity and wall thickness. Tool-free centre-of-pressure adjustment is also incorporated into the brake lever. The brake calliper is identical to that of the MT6.The exact composition of this material remains a closely guarded secret – but we can reveal the following: Carbotecture® is the perfect material for the new exclusive Carboflow® process, also developed by MAGURA. Carbotecture® consists of a high percentage of carbon fibres in a thermoplastic matrix. This new material can not be compared with any known fibre reinforced plastic or laminated carbon fibre mats.
The advantages of Carbotecture® are enormous:
Properties of the material
- Extremely light (less than half the density of aluminium).
- Tensile strength in between aluminium and steel, extremely impact resistant and break proof ...
- Highest flexural fatigue strength of all conventional bike component materials.
- The efficiency weight (tensile strength/density) is double that of aluminium or magnesium and 6 times higher than steel ...
- Carboflow® has the highest process security due to complete in house manufacturing at MAGURA Germany.
- Much higher reproducibility compared to conventional carbon laminates.
- Highest dimensional accuracy and precision.
- Perfectly sealed surface after processing (aluminium die cast has open sponge-like pores and must be impregnated).
- Especially adapted design to the Carboflow® process allows an optimized fibre orientation according to the directional stress.
- Better calculable and more homogeneous than die cast aluminium. Oversizing can be reduced, thus ensuring a lighter and safer component design.
- Manufactured using the the Carboflow® process (without mechanical post processing as with alloy die cast) allows full freedom of shaping.
- The lightest possible material allocation can be realized with complex strength and process simulation.
- The product design enjoys almost no limits.
