    Magura Marta Any changes 2002 to present?

    Have any changes been made besides color to the Marta Disc brakes in the last few years? Are the 2002 Martas any different from the 2004 or 2005 brakes?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Some time shortly after the color change (silver to black) they changed from the round rotors to the wave rotors. Other than that I think they are the same.

    In 2002, the Martas were the only level with a silver finish and round rotors. For 2003 (and newer), they added the top line Marta SL with a silver finish, carbon lever blades, and wave rotors. The standard Martas also have the wave rotors but with aluminum blades and a black finish. You don't miss much with the 2002 model. The wave rotors are lighter but can warp easier. Personally I don't think the SLs are worth the extra $50 for just carbon blades.
