How To Get The Best From Your Brakes | Mountain Bike Disc Brake Set Up Tips

How do you like your brakes? Levers horizontal or pointed down? Biting close to the bar or not much movement in the lever at all? It’s all personal preference and its worth experimenting a bit to find a set up that works best for you🔧

In association with Magura

The GMBN Shop:

We’ve partnered with Magura for this video as they offer a number of different customisation options to really fine tune your set up. There are 12 models of disc brake available in both two and four piston configurations; with four lever blade options. There are four sizes of rotor and three different pad compounds to choose from; along with coloured piston covers to coordinate your ride!
