The Cura is a clean, simple, and great riding brake designed to fit all riders and their bikes. The lever, designed for the human factor, is our most ergonomic and intuitive yet. With how capable mountain bikes have become at conquering any trail our caliper is proficient in taming the bike to overcome the trail. In fact we believe this is one of the most powerful brakes on the market - the crew at ORBO have used the Cura on downhill bikes and never felt underpowered. With a sudden power curve, the feeling is something like a Shimano Saint.
The Cura is Formula’s first brake to use mineral oil. Brake performance standards have always been out of the range for the inclusion of mineral oil - until now. They have finally found and use a mineral oil that complements the performance of their brakes.
The Formula Cura has been designed from top to bottom with riders in mind. In the laboratory, and on the race track, they have confirmed that the Cura is an extremely powerful, wide range brake that feels comfortable from weekend warriors and Enduro riders to World Cup Downhill racers.
At ORBO, we believe that brakes are one of the most personal and intimate parts of the bike, and we choose to stock the Cura for its value, power and simplicity.
