R1 R - Polished
R1 R - Polished
R1R is the lightest brake on the market. Amazing power in a lightweight package, only 267 grams with 22mm pistons for the caliper, stainless steel hardware and kevlar hose.
When we designed the pull-style master cylinder, the idea was to keep the power of our radial master cylinder but allow the lever to be adjusted closer to the bar. This is the only master cylinder of its kind, creating a light lever action by reducing friction and wear for a better lever feel over the life of the brake.
The R1R features the same caliper as the R1 for confidence and reliability.
Doing things in a big way! This must have been the motto of Formula’s engineers when developing the R1 Racing disc brake for CC-Race use, as they have digged deep in the box with precious materials. High-quality forged and polished aluminium meets titanium fixing screws and Kevlar reinforced high-pressure brake hoses. This results in a high-performance brake, which is not only extremely lightweight with just about 267 grams, yet also powerful and rigid enough that is can be used even for all-mountain and enduro riding. This is made possible by a one-piece forged aluminium brake caliper with 22 mm piston diameter and a pull-style PPT master cylinder for reduced internal friction and more stability in the brake lever. What’s more, the Formula R1R with its noble finish is the perfect eye-catcher on every well-specced mountain bike.
