The disc brake is an indispensable part of the bike circus. An increasing power density at the world's top and constantly growing at the extreme bike disciplines require delay values of modern brake systems that are unparalleled.
The braking force dosage must be sensitive and safe at all times - independent of the current weather conditions.
Formula as one of the first manufacturers has exclusively specialized on the development of disc brakes for mountain bikes. It is due to this fact that products of the Italian goldsmith are today recognized as the benchmark. With weights that are only marginally higher than the lightest rim brakes in the world and delay values as they were known previously only from the motorcycles Formula disc brakes are now leading. This raises the question: Why does not everyone drive a disc brake?
