PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Formula R1 Disc Brake 2013

The R1 is the premier race brake on the market today. Despite its low weight, the R1 generates more than enough power and performance for all-mountain or enduro use. The forged radial master cylinder and 1-piece caliper gives the R1 durability, while the R1's patented caliper piston system increases fluid capacity in the caliper providing stability and fade resistance even on long descents. The Enhanced Caliper Technology (ECT) help provide higher rollback and easy installation.

Master Cylinder:

  • Forged radial master cylinder
  • Patent-pending high-capacity integrated reservoir
  • Higher capacity (25% larger) fluid reservoir and new diaphragm for better heat control
  • Removable handlebar clamp
  • Flip-flop master cylinder assembly
  • Forged aluminum lever blade with integrated tool free reach adjustment
  • Hard anodized master cylinder piston
  • Laser etched logo

Caliper:

  • Forged one-piece post mount caliper body with 22mm pistons
  • Cupped caliper pistons for increased cooling surface area
  • Top and bottom vented caliper for maximum cooling
  • Top loading pads
  • Laser etched logos
  • Aluminum backed pads for additional weight savings

These are easy to install, easy to set up and they have a lot of stopping power! I've got em on a Specialized Epic Expert and on my GF Rig single speed.

AM stopping power in XC weight - Apr 25, 2014

NEW YORK, NY

These brakes are a gorgeous piece of engineering. Light enough for XC with the stopping power of a trail/AM brake. The unibody design of the calipers make for extreme precision and power. The one flaw is the almost zero clearance of the pads on the rotors. Fatter rotors wont fit until you wear down the pads and getting the wheel back on requires precise insertion.
