Magura Raceline brakes back in limited quantities

Raceline edition Magura brakes will once again be made available in limited quantities, having largely been the preserve of sponsored athletes.

Special edition MT8 and MT7 Raceline brakes will now be made available to European customers only, with the brand offering the limited edition yellow brakes via Magura Pro Shop dealers on a click & collect basis.

The Magura Raceline series first rose to fame in the very first Olympic mountain bike race in Atlanta in 1996, piloted by race winner Bart Brentjens and then part of the HS33 series. Today, the brakes are more commonly adorned to the bikes of downhill stars Loic Bruni and Danny Hart or cross country athletes like Elisabeth Brandau and Yana Belomoina.
