The Cura is a clean, simple, and great riding brake designed to fit all riders and their bikes. The lever, designed for the human factor, is the most ergonomic and intuitive yet. With how capable mountain bikes have become at conquering any trail Formula´s caliper is proficient in taming the bike to overcome the trail.
This new era of disc brakes has given Formula the chance to change their status quo. The Cura is Formula’s first brake to use mineral oil. This brake performance standards have always been out of the range for the inclusion of mineral oil. Formula have finally found and use a mineral oil that complements the performance of our brakes.
The Formula Cura has been designed from top to bottom with riders in mind. In Formula´s laboratory, and on the race track, they have confirmed that the Cura is an extremely powerful, wide range brake that feels comfortable from weekend warriors and enduro riders to World Cup Downhill racers. We believe that brakes are one of the most personal and intimate parts of the bike, this is why Formula have simplicity and efficiency in mind when they design it.
Speed Lock technology allows for the disconnection and connection of the hose multiple times without losing fluid or introducing air into the brake. The Speed Lock hose is the best option for internally routed frames, the traveler who packs their bike, or anyone who is constantly assembling/disassembling their bike.
The MixMaster handlebar clamp is an option for all Formula brakes. This simple upgrade allows for the direct attachment of Shimano and SRAM shifters on your Formula brake, giving the bike a clean look. Perfect to help declutter handlebars busy with the many clamps today’s bikes employ.
1-Piece rotor is Formula´s standard for all riding styles. It features the same aggressive braking surface as the 2-piece rotor. The vent design increases lateral stiffness by 40% reducing noise and vibration. 2-Piece rotor features an aluminum carrier that does more than look great. The aluminum core acts as a heat sink, pulling heat away from the caliper increasing performance by keeping the pads and the brake fluid cool. The carrier also increases laterally rigidity and allows for the expansion and contraction of the steel braking surface to be directed 90° from the hub.
