    Formuala K24/18 only in post mount and fade resistance.

    Do the K24/k18 only come in post mount?


    How are these brakes on fade resistance on long downhills vs the Martas?

    I have Magura Martas 203/160 and I have been increasing my downhill speed and my rear will fade. Sometimes I even fade the fronts. I had to stop recently when both faded at the same time. I have used different braking methods, but to no significant difference. I tried a 180 on the rear and that just made me skid. It doesn't seem to be braking force, but heat tolerance for a sustained period. I tried a different rotor, SL drilled, and it sort of helped.

    Yes, they only come in post mount. Yes, they should be more resistant to fade.

    I guess a little extra weight for the rear adapter and bolts. It cant be much though
