Magura MT 6 Disc Brake
The MT6 is part of Magura's high-end line of brakes. The structure of the brake lever is identical to that of the MT8, except for the use of an aluminium brake lever and aluminium clamp. The Carbotecture master cylinder/lever is nearly twice as strong as carbon laminates or aluminum and the Double Arch 1-piece monoblock caliper design is incredibly stiff and features Easy Pad Replacement technology. Like all Magura brakes, the MT6 uses Royal Blood Mineral Oil brake fluid.

Overall a really nice brake. Good stopping power. Great modulation, perhaps the best I've ridden. The flaw is in the bleeding. If you like a softer brake then they're as easy as Avid to bleed. However, if you like a really firm grippy brake the bleed is difficult.
