Formula R1 Disc Brake

As the lightest serial disc brake ever made the R1 is the premier XC race brake on the market today. Custom tuning drops the stock weight of 298 grams by further 16 grams. Despite its low weight, 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 long descents.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Great stopping power and a nice tight feel, no sponginess at all. Had these for a couple of years and no issues at all. 04 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stopping power These came stock on my Epic and only ever having used Avid Elixirs previously, these have far superior stopping power. They have been through a few enduros without any issues. At times they can be a little noisy (turkey gobble) but that's usually at the start of a ride if it's wet and they settle down quickly. 10 February 2012

Rated 1 out of 5 by avoid... Formula R1 brakes 2012 means only one thing : issues,issues and more issues. Have a look into bike forums,you'll get it.
