Formula R1 Hydraulic Disc Brake


Great performance and a feathery weight make the R1 the premier XC race brake on today's market. Still the R1 generates more than enough power and performance for an All Mountain or Enduro use.

The forged master cylinder body and caliper provide increased modulation, braking power and durability, while the R1's patented caliper piston system increases fluid capacity in the caliper providing stability and fade resistance even on the longest descents. New for 2013 is Formula's Enhanced Caliper Technology (ECT) for higher piston rollback and easier caliper setup.
