    Formula doesn't make the Oro (gold) any longer. Stick with the Magura but go plain Marta not the lighter carbon lever version.Spend the extra money on something else.

    Formula's new for 2005 ORO is just hitting N. America (this past week) so at the moment it's an unknown quantity but it's had great reviews in Europe where it's been out for a little while.

    Time will tell which is the better brake. But they will both have great backup service.
