OLNEY, IL (BRAIN) — Magura has announced a recall of some of its hydraulic brake levers because they can fail in extreme cold conditions.

The affected brakes are the MT 6 and MT 8 systems with manufacture date codes between March 1, 2011 and May 31, 2012. A date code in format Y/MM/DD between 10301 and 20531 is located on the caliper. Additionally, all MT 6 and MT 8 brake systems without date codes are being recalled.

The MT 6 brake system is black and silver. The MT 8 brake system is black and red. Both brake systems have the Magura logo and letters "MT" on the master cylinder, and the word "Magura" on the caliper. The word "Six" is on the brake lever of the MT 6 and the word "Eight" is on the brake lever of the MT 8.

Consumers should immediately stop riding bicycles equipped with the recalled brakes and contact Magura USA for a free repair.
