We've had incredible success with Formula's fantastic brake portfolio and the Italian innovators continue to push the boundaries for high end performance stoppers.

The R1, T1 and RO brakes consolidated their positions as the most controlled, yet minimal weight anchors across the XC, All Mountain and full on DH disciplines for yet another season in 2014. Features like the Feeling Control System for bite point adjustment, the Tool Free Reach Adjust dials and the internal cable routing friendly SpeedLock bleed free hose splitting system all make Formula brakes stand above the competition. Couple all of those features with the ability to add a MixMaster bar mount for limiting bar clutter and personal tuning practicality and you can see why they are so popular the world over.

There's a Formula brake for everyone too. The R1 Racing reverses conventional logic with a pull rather than push master cylinder and full titanium hardware that saves another 15g off what was already the lightest brake in the world. The repositioned composite capped reservoir makes bleeding easier and you can still load your 'Racing' with all Formula's usual bonus options. For those on a budget the C1 brake uses an entirely new cartridge design to deliver all the famous Formula performance at a better price than ever before.

2014 saw Formula following up the introduction of their super light yet supple ThirtyThree XC/Trail forks with the all new ThirtyFive Enduro fork. This new trail or gravity race weapon has literally been extended in capability for 2015, with a new EX option taking travel to 170 or 180mm. It still packs the same Formula rebound control and low friction polymeric bushing technology into stiff and bomber strong 35mm legs. It then tops them with Formula's unique new Satellite Switch Adjustment three way tuning controls for perfect 'on the fly' response to every trail situation. All that technology is still squeezed into one of the lightest forks in its category too.
