2012 Formula RO Radial Oval hydraulic disc brake

We finally got some photos of Formula’s 2012 RO (Radial master cylinder / Oval piston) brakes. After posting the initial specs, images were put on hold, but now they’re in the open.

Using a new high volume master cylinder and ovalized pistons, the RO replaces The One and is said to offer 15% more power than the outgoing XC model, on par with 4-piston models. Bullet points and photos after the break…
