In recent years, e-bikes have become a mountain bike phenomenon with great market interest and growth. A discipline that demands a different approach to the design of components, a way of riding that requires specific technology. The stress placed on brakes by e-bikes is the same as a downhill bike, if not greater. Heavier bikes going on long descents, for epic long rides. The fact that you are able to maintain higher average speeds may even mean braking on climbs. An e-bike brake must out perform all others in terms of power and reliability. The Cura-E has been designed with all of these aspects in mind. Based on a platform used specifically for gravity riding, the Cura-E is equipped with the latest generation of brake pads designed for very hard and prolonged use, exactly like what is found in e-biking. The Cura-E has been designed to accept all major e-bike brake sensors making it a universal e-bike brake. Thanks to this, the Cura-E is ready to use with all existing motors on the market, ones that require a brake sensor and those that are automatic.
Speed Lock technology allows for the disconnection and connection of the hose multiple times without losing fluid or introducing air into the brake. The Speed Lock hose is the best option for internally routed frames, the traveler who packs their bike, or anyone who is constantly assembling/disassembling their bike.
The MixMaster handlebar clamp is an option for all Formula brakes. This simple upgrade allows for the direct attachment of Shimano and SRAM shifters on your Formula brake, giving the bike a clean look. Perfect to help declutter handlebars busy with the many clamps today’s bikes employ.
1-Piece rotor is Formula´s standard for all riding styles. It features the same aggressive braking surface as the 2-piece rotor. The vent design increases lateral stiffness by 40% reducing noise and vibration. 2-Piece rotor features an aluminum carrier that does more than look great. The aluminum core acts as a heat sink, pulling heat away from the caliper increasing performance by keeping the pads and the brake fluid cool. The carrier also increases laterally rigidity and allows for the expansion and contraction of the steel braking surface to be directed 90° from the hub.
