Magura MT5 or Shimano Zee M640

3 posts in this topic

Simple question, I don't have the ability to try both them, so I was hoping to get some opinions.

I was thinking Shimano becuase it would be easier for me to get parts, plus I already have a Shimano SLX brake system.

 

I just want something with a lot more bite and stopping power. The slx slip too much. I am 200lbs as well. 

Thanks

I use zee brakes on most of my bike builds, they seem to work great considering the cost and they have strong bite when set up properly, you could probably find some preowned saints off Pinkbike for cheap if you need some extra bite and stopping power but you can't really go wrong with zee's. 

Never owned mt5's but I think they have better modulation but not as good bite force if I remember correctly.
