Formula CR1 and CR3 Brakes - Sea Otter Classic - 2014 Sea Otter Classic Pit Bits - Final Edition - Mountain Biking Pictures - Vital MTB

Formula's newest brakes fall right in-between the C1 and R1 in terms of price and performance. Because they have a sealed cartridge design, the forged body doesn't need expensive precise internal machining, helping to keep the cost down a bit.

The CR1 features a bleed port on the front, lever reach adjustment, and a plastic bushing that can be replaced to adjust the push rod angle.

The CR3 features a 2-piece lever with a tucked away tool-free reach adjust. You can change the push rod angle for softer/firmer progression using the PLA adjustment.
