HC3 - The Professional
Where professional quality is a must, there is quite simply no alternative to the HC3. Weight, performance, ergonomics and control – these criteria have been been ingrained into the HC3’s development. The overall performance of the HC3 exceeds the most demanding requirements. High-quality aluminium is the basic material used in the construction of the HC3. The master cylinder is fully machined from solid aluminium – and it’s this production process that unifies the qualities of extreme rigidity and ultra-low weight for this ABS-compatible fitment.
90° RADIAL DESIGN
The push rod and the cylinder and rod lie at a 90° angle to the handlebars. This results in lower transmission losses and a more direct brake feel for better control.
TAKE THE LEAD
HCT (HARD CORE TECHNOLOGY)
The HCT design diminishes internal friction, emphatically improving brake and clutch performance, especially with ABS systems."
3-WAY ADJUSTABLE LEVER BRARING POINT
Thanks to its adjustable lever bearing design, the HC3 master cylinder offers you the option of making hand lever operation feel harder or softer by simply changing the position of the lever bearing screw. There are three settings, each of which provides 90° full-radial actuation. Each new setting mimics a piston diameter change of ± 1 mm.
MACHINED ALUMINIUM BODY
This master cylinder body has been produced from high grade aluminium alloy to ensure a lightweight design combined with maximum rigidity which has been built to last.
FULL ABS COMPATIBILITY
MAGURA “HCT” is approved for continuous use with all ABS systems without loss of performance due to pressure compensation (ABS-Kickback).
FOLDING LEVER BLADE
Reduces the force exerted on the master cylinder body in the event of a fall over. This will increase the possibility to continue riding following a fall over incident.
The master cylinder is supplied with an external reservoir and mounting bracket designed to use minimum space and with smoked glass to optically determine the level and condition of the brake fluid at all times.
■ Piston diameter 18 mm = 17 to 19 mm (fully ABE approved)
■ Piston diameter 15 mm = 14 to 16 mm (fully ABE approved)
■ Piston diameter 12 mm = 11 to 13 mm, short lever blade, without switch and ABE (race version)
90° FULL RADIAL DESIGN
Pushrod and cylinder at right angle to handlebar results in decreased friction and more direct brake feeling for improved control.
3 WAY LEVER RATIO
The hand activated master cylinder lever has a clever 3 way adjustable point of support. This mimics the effect of using a piston size 1 mm below and above the selected hydraulic ratio. Simply remove and reposition the lever support retaining bolt for a softer or harder pressure point. All 3 positions offer 90° full radial activation.
ADVANCED SECONDARY SEAL TECHNOLOGY
The rear piston seal has been specially designed to prevent the introduction of air through secondary seal ingress. The advanced X-Ring seal design will reduce or eliminate this problem common on racing motorcycles at higher RPM.
TITANIUM RETAINING BOLTS
Lever and clamp retaining bolts are high grade titanium saving weight while remaining strong and durable.
■ Piston diameter 15 mm = 14 to 16 mm (for brake fluid use - DOT)
■ Piston diameter 12 mm = 11 to 13 mm (for mineral oil use*)
* Suitable for use with BMW and KTM mineral oil clutch activation systems.
* Suitable for use with MAGURA HYMEC applications.
