WELCOME TO THE PASSION PEOPLE.[Pas|sion Middle English via old French and late Latin passio, -ionis from Latin pati suffe 1. strong, barely controllable emotion, 2. strong enthusiasm.] (Excerpts from the Oxford dictionnary of contemporary English)
MAGURA 2011 The brilliance of simplicity In the Gulf of Mexico our planet is experiencing one of the worst man made catastrophes of all time. Who is to blame? A negligent oil multinational? Arent we all to blame or at least those of us who use their cars even on their 5 km daily commute to work? A car driver travelling such short stretches alone represents the worst case scenario for energy efficiency. On the other side of the coin a vehicle invention made almost two centuries ago allows the user to achieve around 80 % energy efficiency enabling travel with less energy input than anything seen previously. The success of this invention is very much alive and well in todays world: the bicycle. MAGURA accepted the challenge many years ago to improve the interface between man and machine. This is evident in the range of high tech componentry which transforms your bicycle into the perfect riding machine, offers quality which lasts whilst retaining simple basic ideas as the development platform. You know how great it is to have the perfect bike under you. The fascinating feeling of converting your own muscle-power into distance travelled. With the energy created at the breakfast table converted into wind in your face. The landscape experienced in all its faces without polluting it with exhaust fumes. Be a part of the Passion People, ride your bike, invest in long lasting MAGURA components they have been dreamed up, designed, produced and marketed by people who share your spirit. Thank you for placing your trust in MAGURA products!
Lightweight yet super solid > Due to the exclusive Double Arch design the Durin, Thor and Menja are some of the stiffest suspension forks out there making them unrestricted to the usage of rotors up to 210 mm in diameter. > Our brake flagship model, the Marta SL Magnesium, combined with the brand new and super lightweight Storm SL rotor, available for the first time in a 140 mm dimension, enters with its 280 grams/0.61 lbs a new territory in terms of feather-light yet super solid systems. With the 203 Storm or Storm SL rotor all Martas are fully Enduro compatible. The cool new Marta FR goes even one step further with its freeride ambitions and is definitely a worthy successor of the legendary Louise FR. Reliability > Rather than the usual, poisonous brake fluid which requires regular changes, all MAGURA brakes have been using mineral oil since the very beginning. Obviously the right decision, otherwise BIG S wouldn't have gone the same way a few years later . And as the Royal Blood has been proven in millions of brake systems we are the only manufacturer that gives a 5-year warranty on all seals! It goes without saying then, that the actual rim brake pads fit even to the very first Hydro Stop of model year 1987! This is what we understand by sustainability! > HS 11 and HS 33 are living legends and enjoy an outstanding reputation amongst commuters, trial maniacs, hobby cyclists and extreme globetrotters due to the easy replacement of brake blocks and the lack of regular servicing they require. The brand new versions of our legendary rim brakes offer a wide variety of options to allow you to design your individual brake! What makes us tick > At MAGURA rather than making a short lived bang with our products on the catwalk of the bike world we firmly believe in maintaining as well as improving proven products in the MAGURA line-up until we have groundbreaking innovation which delivers real advantages out on the trails and roads. If you buy MAGURA parts today you can be assured that you did not just put an outdated bit of equipment on your bike. > Made in Germany is lived philosophy at MAGURA from the R&D department situated in the heart of the Swabian Alb (one of the most demanding bike spots in Southern Germany) via the ultra modern production at the companys HQ in Bad Urach all the way to the service department and those of our international partners that deal often in record time with customer enquiries and repairs. We have been following these ideologies for more than 20 years because we are as equally demanding and passionate cyclists as our customers. We hope to see you at the next bike festival, races, online on magura.com or even better, out there on the trails!
