    Details about new Fromula brakes - The One & MeGa

    Who knows the release date and the weight of these? They are allegedly better than my k24's...that sounds awesome...

    *edit* http://content.mtbr.com/TRD_14_341crx.aspx

    Thanks

    Sweet pics. I passed right over that one. I wish that we could have someone put brakes up against one another because there's a claim there that they are the most powerful two piston brakes on the market. I would like to see how it does against the V2 and the Gustav.

    I've been told mid november is likely to be the purchase date. On Formulas website the weights are not far off the oro's. Sounds good.

    If the are anything like the Puro's they will be more than enough. Gustav are nice but heavy.

    Prices weren't finalized 100% when I checked last, but MSRP will likely be in the $310 per brake range for the One, and $260'ish for the Mega. Probably Dec/Jan time frame before they are available in the US.

    The price of The ONE will be around $336 with out rotor and adapter

    The price of The MEGA will be around $273 with out rotor and adapter.

    Prices depend on who you buy them from, this is a estimate using QBP's retail pricing.

    You can pick up a set of K18s for under $300 with rotors and adapters. A full set!

    Jaybo,

    I may swap my Biancos for The One when available. PM me if interested in buying my Biancos.

    Damn, glad I saw this. I was thinking about some Biancos or k24s, but I just might hang on for the Ones.


    As an aside, is the difference between The One and The One GM just cosmetic?

    I have formula's 2008 MSRP right here.

    The One - $288 each brake
    Mega - $234
    Puro - $315
    Bianco - $252
    K24 - $189
    K18 - $140

    Add about $40 MSRP for rotor and adapter per brake (for 160-180 rotor size).

    Yes, that is the only difference... and a short production run.

    I've just ordered a set of 'The One's'

    Are the 160 mm rotors the same as used on other Formula Oro brakes (K18, K24, ...) ? In that case I don't need to unmount my current Oro Puro discs which are just bed in
