Formula celebrates 25 years in business with the 25th Anniversary T1 Limited Edition Brakeset. Based on the T1 brakes, the 25th Anniversary version adds commemorative graphics and a special Physical Vapor Deposition coating that's super durable, won't crack or fade, and shines like the grill on your favorite hip-hop star. Formula is only releasing 600 sets of these into the world.

Like the T1, the 25th Anniversary model uses a stiff, forged radial master cylinder with a high capacity integrated reservoir. The large reservoir combined with a redesigned diaphragm gives the T1 excellent heat dissipation and a consistent lever feel on sustained descents, even in extreme heat. A flip-flop master cylinder allows you to run moto-style without changing lines or bleeding. The T1 is compatible with the Mixmaster shifter perch (available separately) if you'd like to de-clutter your cockpit. It also sports Formula's tool-less reach adjust for on-the-fly fine-tuning.

Down at the caliper, Formula uses large, 22mm, heat-dissipating composite pistons which are cupped to offer increased surface area for heat to be eliminated. The caliper is a one-piece design that resists power loss to flex. Top load pads make replacement a simple process, even with the wheel in place, and the caliper body features large openings at the top and bottom to assist with moving heat away as quickly as possible. Formula's new ECT (Enhanced Caliper Technology) allows the pad to roll further back into the caliper for easier installation and tuning.

Formula uses light, strong Kevlar braided brake lines to prevent hose expansion when the system is under extreme pressure. They also employ DOT 4 brake fluid, which is less temperature-sensitive than mineral oil. The end result is a cool running, high powered, and consistent brake that won't go soft mid-descent. Formula finishes the 25th Anniversary T1 Limited Edition Brakeset off with a high quality Physical Vapor Deposition finish and an anodized red cap on the calipers that screams performance. The price reflects all the parts, save for the rotor which is sold separately in three sizes -- 160mm, 180mm, and 203mm -- each with the appropriate adapters.

Please note: almost all hydraulic brake lines need to be cut to size before a bike is properly shod with hydraulic disc brakes. You'll need a quality cable-cutter like the Park CN-10 and a spoke to first cut and then de-crimp the housing.
