Original Magura RT6 TT Hydraulic Brake for racing bicycle rear.

BRAKE REVOLUTION FOR TRIATHLON AND TIME TRIALLING Same features than the RT8 TT but in a better price value package. As a hydraulic rim brake, the RT6 TT has a crucial advantage over comparable mechanical braking systems: Friction losses are considerably lower allowing greater efficacy. This feature allows optimal control. Apart from this, only the slightest of touches is required to produce a high braking power.

The RT6 TT combines rapid deceleration with the best possible modulation therefore providing ideal speed management. ''On descents, the cyclist can brake later and more precisely therefore gaining crucial seconds in those few meters before the curve,'' Magura Head of Marketing, G?tz Braun, explains. Magura 's slogan for the RT8 TT is also: ''Seconds make the difference!''

The RT6 TT is designed for minimal weight: The aluminium brake levers saves precious weight, as do the light and extremely stiff aluminium brake bodies. The result of the collaboration is the second lightest hydraulic racing bike braking system on the market at only 545 grams.

The RT6 TT is a completely maintenance-free braking system and is unaffected by dirt, dust and water. With the help of the hydraulics, changing the brake pads is relatively simple compared to cable brake systems. Thanks to the clever ''quick release'' mechanism, the wheel change takes only a moment. The brake lever set-up is also uncomplicated. Of course, the RT6 TT uses Magura Royal Blood mineral oil.

The ergonomically formed aluminium brake lever and the exceptional modulation of the RT6 allow perfect braking, even for cyclists with small hands. ''They provide the best braking control for the cyclist and thus also a feeling of security,'' Gtz Braun says. The RT6 also converts the very slightest of touches to high braking power. It is therefore also ideally suited to the needs of the female cyclist taking part in road racing events.

Magura streamlined the RT6 TT in collaboration with the aerodynamics expert Cerv?lo using a wind tunnel. The brake bodies are shaped aerodynamically and the hydraulic lines are hidden inside the tubes. The ultra-stiff brake levers form part of the wing profile.
