    Hope M4 vs. Marta SL

    Hi All,

    I'm considering updating my brake system from 2005 Hope M4's to 2009 Magura Marta SL's, i.e. going from dual piston 180F/160R to single piston 160-180F/160R for a XC/AM ride. ...Would I experience a big difference? My primary motivator is to try newer technology and shave off a half pound.

    FWIW, I used to also have an '05 hardtail with '05 single piston Hope Mini Mono 160mm F & R; I noticed quite a difference between that set and my current M4's, and certainly preferred the M4's in spite of the extra weight.

    Thanks!

    What bike are we talking about? What kind of riding are you doing?

    Intense Spider, newest version with 5 inches of travel. Terrain is mostly singletrack and sometimes fireroad with fun descents and hilly climbs.
