Magura HS33 Firm Tech Brake System

5/5 (1 Reviews)

Product Description

FIRM-tech is a feather light high-tech package consisting of a slimline HS 33 rim brake fully integrated into a state-of-art MAGURA suspension fork. The brake is mounted behind the upper legs of the fork for maximum brake power. A fresh and unique look of the bike is another aspect not to neglect. FIRM-tech is not only the abbreviation for Fully IntegRated Magura Technology.

Strengths:    These are the best rim brakes that exist! They are unbeaten when it comes to modulation and braking power. I have yet to find disk brakes that give this kind of braking confidence!

Weaknesses:    Rim wear, but that comes with any rim brake
Limmited to Magura Forks (not that there is anything wrong with those)

Bottom Line:   
Lighter then disk-brakes, better modulation and more braking power (then most disk-brakes)
I own two bikes with this system and have build five more, including one with front AND rear Firm-Tech brakes. The simplicity and reliability of this system is another of its advantages. You just screw them on and your ready, adjustment is super easy with an allen key and hardly ever needed. There is a large variety in available brake pads so you can adapt it to all types of weather conditions and kinds of rim. Changing wheels or pads is as simple as lifting two levers.
To me this is the best braking system ever!
