Magura delivers some serious stopping power at Interbike 2016, plus a pair of product sneak peeks that are so new they can’t tell us much about them just yet.

First up is the 299-gram Raceline MT8 brake, the perfect stopping solution for riders looking to shave weight but not compromise performance. On the more heavy duty side are the RMT Trail brakes, which weigh 355 grams and utilize a robust 6-piston design, four up front, two in the back. The idea if that a rider needs more power to maintain traction on the front wheel, but less for finer modulation and ride feel on the rear wheel. This adds up to fade-free control and superb power when you need it.

On the sneak peek front comes the Boltron Fork, a new inverted fork that features a 20mm axle, and is intended to withstand the higher weights and speeds of eBikes. Magura has also tweaked its Vyron wireless dropper, which uses ANT+ technology and a one touch button remote.
