Our review

Powerful and utterly Alp-proof brake but heavy and not infallible

The idea of Moto was to create a brake to cope with the most over-the-top riders’ needs, and it succeeded.

The big body gives maximum lever stiffness and reservoir size while the monster single-piece twin pot calliper is designed to suck up huge amounts of heat. 

The unique (for mountain bikes) three-ply vented rotor stays cooler than conventional rotors, with no issues even during a gripped descent of the 8,000ft Mega Avalanche.

Overall power is outstanding, yet modulation is impressive, with bite point adjustable for fine tuning feel.

A lighter standard rotor is available, although Moto is never going to be that light. Moto owners also report more reliability glitches than others, although Hope’s back-up is second to none.
