Brembo presents the latest evolution in the radial master cylinder concept with the launch of the new 19RCS CORSA CORTA. This new radial master brake cylinder features a host of innovations, with many of the technical solutions adopted drawn directly from the master cylinders used in MotoGP.
In the Normal setting, indicated on the master cylinder with the letter N, the bite point starts more gradually, making it suitable for city riding or braking in poor grip conditions.
In the Sport setting, indicated on the master cylinder with the letter S, the beginning of the bite point is shorter than in the N setting. This setting produces a more dynamic response suitable for sportier riding.
Lastly, in the Race setting, indicated on the master cylinder with the letter R, the position of the cam mechanism shortens the initial stage of the bite point even further to produce the same immediate response of the master cylinders used in MotoGP, letting the rider reach the bite point of the brakes instantaneously. This setting is ideal for use on the race track, where every hundredth of a second shaved off a lap time counts.
This model uses a 17 mm diameter piston and a folding long lever (LL), a detail which is particularly popular with Racing riders and those who love to ride on the track.
Brembo uses only cutting-edge procedures in order to guarantee excellent operation and performance. In fact, the aluminum alloy brake master cylinder main body is obtained through forging and then machined with numerically controlled equipment.
Combined, the choice of two fulcrum-to-piston measurements (18 and 20 mm) and three bite-point settings (R, S and N) offer a total of six different settings.
For the surface finishing oxidation was chosen which is normally used in MotoGP and Superbike.
