TruckerCo brake pads for Magura MT series brakes

Ride impressions

I tried these pads with new 160mm and 140mm Avid HSX rotors. Findings:

  • braking power is excellent - higher than the stock Magura 7.3 type pads;
  • very quick to bed in and achieve full power;
  • less noise than stock Magura 7.3 type pads - almost silent whereas the 7.3 type pads would emit a high pitched squeal on light braking;
