A bit numb, but tough and well proven for the price

Magura’s Julie brake has been around for years, and now it offers no-nonsense performance at a better price than ever.


The big resin body and chunky blade aren’t subtle, and the feel from the thick lever is a bit wooden. Once bedded in, overall modulation is good too, and while it’s not super stoppy in standard spec, it comes in a 210mm/190mm rotor option for extra power. Despite its bulk, overall weight is good.

Like all Magura brakes you get a five-year no-leak guarantee if you register online; and comprehensive race support.


The low pressure hoses are less flexible than most though and you’ll soon find its boiling point if you start cooking it in proper mountains. A proven UK-useful brake for the money.
