Product Description

Sharing the same CarboTecture technology (German for carbon fiber-reinforced thermoplastic) as the flagship cross-country MT8 brake, the Magura MT6 Disc Brake matches the MT8's stopping power for a hair more weight and a lower price. While the MT6 outweighs the race-level MT8, they get the...

Strengths:    Modulation

Weaknesses:    Power

Bottom Line:   
I had the MT8 on my Stumpjumper 26 which I sold. Thankfully, my new 2013 Epic came with MT6, which I think I like even more than the MT8. As others have mentioned, the brake feels stronger on the MT6 due to the lever. When MT series brakes are bled correctly, they totally rock. These brakes are good for all Mtn stuff, not just XC due in large part to their excellent modulation and control.

Strengths:    Modulation, no need for bleeding (so far), light weight, reasonable price

Weaknesses:    bed in

Bottom Line:   
Bed in took a while, but after they are bedded in, they work great. I've been riding in 2-10 degree celsius temps and have not had to bleed them. They work great when it's wet and are quiet. Modulation is logical and progressive. Power is good, even with a 140mm rotor on the rear. Easy installation and setup, with videos provided by Magura if you need help.

Strengths:    Very logical modulation feel.
Easy to bleed.

Weaknesses:    EBT screws are plastic, which makes them very easy to destroy
Needs xtra bleedings when temperature is less than -15C

Bottom Line:   
Overall I am very satisfied with my MT6 brakes. Especially brake power modulation fits for me perfectly. Only downside on my MT6s is constant need to bleed them on colder winter days. System leaks a little when temperature goes under -15C and brakes needs bleeding after 20hr of riding (luckily bleeding is brain dead simple). When temperature rises leakage stops. Beside of small leaking, these brakes have no other issues with coldness.

Strengths:    These German engineered and German made brakes have great power and modulation. The rotors are a bit thicker than
most of the rotors out there so they stay true. I have not had any significant fading problems with the mt-6 brakes. These brakes hardly squeal when they get wet. Nice full size levers. The unique caliper piston seals keep the brake pads centered
very well.

Weaknesses:    price

Bottom Line:   
great brakes and extremely light
