Brembo is still a step forward compared to the competition, with its new
adjustable derivation radial brake master cylinder, developed through their
experience of racing at the highest level. The major innovation is the new
patented device RCS (Ratio Click System) that allows for easy adjustment of the
lever ratio with the simple rotation of an eccentric adjuster, placed on the
front of the lever.
RCS system function: switchable between 18mm and 20mm
ratios, with the RCS-Ratio Click System you can change from one configuration to
another, allowing for different riding characteristics. Red spot on the
eccentric adjuster means 18mm position while black spot identifies 20mm
position. This solution makes it possible to adapt to different braking
conditions, dry or wet, more or less grip, for use on the track or on the
street. It is virtually is like having two different master cylinders in one.
The master cylinder body is forged aluminium then
subsequently CNC worked by lightening mill before finally the surface is hard
anodised. The new radial brake cylinder reflects the geometry, dimensions and
features of that used in MotoGP.
Moto GP floating piston: 19mm diameter bore with high-level
components including piston, seals and push rod which are inherited directly
from the Superbike and MotoGP championship equipment, meaning reduced
manufacturing tolerances and excellent smoothness.
The brake lever itself is made up of two main components
allowing for a fold up design, greatly reducing the risk of the lever snapping
in the event of a crash (this is another patented system that only allows the
lever to fold on impact, eliminating the possibility of the lever accidentally
folding during use, a great safety feature).
Micro-switch: another fantastic feature is a special housing
to accept a micro brake light switch making this radial master cylinder suitable
for road use, without the need for banjo bolt pressure switches.
Lever contrast springs: high load springs to guarantee the
constant contact between the eccentric adjuster and the push rod, resulting in
safety and longer life of various components.
- Includes micro brake light switch.
- 19mm bore size.
- Lever span adjustable.
- Remote reservoir design (if you do not have a brembo reservoir you will
need to fit one as well as reservoir pipe and pipe clips).
- Integral bleed nipple for rapid bleeding after assembly/service
- Handlebar size 22mm.
- Please be aware that if the master cylinder you are replacing is not
Brembo then you will need to replace the banjo bolt as these use a
M10*1.00 short thread
This Italian product is adorned with a graphic that shows beautifully the
Italian tricolour at the same time providing immediate recognisability of the
unit. All this ensured with Brembo quality.
