Formula’s Race version of the R1 features a carbon lever blade and Kevlar hoses. This drops the weight to just 264 grams and makes it the best choice for every XC-race oriented rider.
Based on the already ridiculously light Formula R1, the Racing model adds carbon fiber lever blade to drop even more heft. Like the R1, the Racing uses a stiff forged radial master cylinder with a high capacity integrated reservoir. The large reservoir combined with a redesigned diaphragm gives the R1 Racing excellent heat dissipation and a consistent lever feel on sustained descents, even in extreme heat. A flip-flop master cylinder allows you to run moto-style without changing lines or bleeding. The R1 Racing is compatible with the Mixmaster shifter perch (available separately) if you'd like to de-clutter your cockpit.
