In the latest issue of Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, we put to the test the latest lightweight stoppers from Italian brake connoisseurs; Formula.
The R1 hydraulic disc brakes are a popular option amongst the XC race crowd due to their low overall weight, but they’re also becoming a choice option for Trail and All Mountain riders wanting to drop weight from their capable steeds without sacrificing power.
