Formula (Canada) – Press Release: Cura 4 - Just born, already World Champion.
With Cura 4 we set a very ambitious goal for ourselves, we tried to go beyond even our own expectations. Our direction was clear from the beginning, create a brake that had no equal in terms of power and performance, one that was made of the highest quality materials and was accessible to a vast number of riders.
The four 18mm diameter pistons of the Cura 4 provide the rider with, up until now, unimaginable power. The expanded friction surface of the pads and the increased thickness guarantee perfect modulation. With Cura 4 you will be able to have maximum control over braking power. The optimized roll-back allows for reaching that exceptional lever feeling that has already made the Cura famous.
The Cura 4 inherits its quality of materials from its smaller brother, Cura. In fact, it is a fully forged and anodized brake, a production process that guarantees structural quality, reliability over time and low weight.
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 de-clutter handlebars busy with the many clamps today’s bikes employ.
Together with Cura 4 we are proud to introduce our new disc. After more than three years of development we have arrived at a design that combines the best of all the "must have" features in a disc: extreme lateral stiffness that guarantees impact resistance by protecting the disk from unwanted damage; reduced unwanted noise caused by friction; a special anti-noise design which reduces the risk of resonance and vibrations; reduced pad wear.
Bold as Gold:
Beside Glossy Black and Polished, the Cura 4 is also available in a brand new Gold finish.
