Brembo Corsa Corta RCS 19 front brake master cylinder
Brembo Corsa Corta RCS 19 front brake master cylinder the latest evolution in the radial master cylinder concept. The new Brembo RCS 19 CORSA CORTA. This new radial master brake cylinder features a host of innovations. Many of the technical solutions adopted were drawn directly from the master cylinders used in MotoGP.
The most significant achievement is that the 19RCS CORSA CORTA allows the rider to tailor the bite point. Via an easily accessible selector on the top of the master cylinder itself.
ONE MASTER CYLINDER, THREE RIDE MODES
The selector operates a cam mechanism to let the user choose between three different responsiveness settings.
In the Normal setting the bite point starts more gradually, making it suitable for city riding or braking in poor grip conditions.
In the Sport setting the beginning of the bite point is shorter than in the N setting. This setting produces a more dynamic response suitable for sportier riding.
Lastly, in the Race setting the position of the cam mechanism shortens the initial stage of the bite point even further. This is to produce the same immediate response of the master cylinders used in MotoGP. This setting is ideal for use on the race track, where every hundredth of a second shaved off a lap time counts.
By simply changing from one setting to another the rider can configure the braking response and feel of the bike.
WHAT PRESSURE DO YOU WANT?
The new Brembo 19RCS CORSA CORTA also features the RCS(Ratio Click System) system introduced 10 years ago on the Brembo 19RCS radial master cylinder. This lets the rider select a fulcrum-to-piston distance of 18 or 20 mm by simply turning the adjuster screw on the front.
The system uses a cam (red when set to 18 mm, black when set to 20 mm). This adjusts the distance between the fulcrum point and the contact point with the master cylinder push rod by 2 millimeters. This changes the distribution of the braking force without altering the performance of the system in terms of pure power. The innovative adjustment system introduced with the new Brembo 19RCS CORSA CORTA contributes to a sense of total control.
A commitment to product improvement has allowed Brembo to offer three different master cylinders in one. Bringing the performance of the braking system as a whole to another level. Combined, the choice of two fulcrum-to-piston measurements (18 and 20 mm) and three bite-point settings (R, S and N) offer a total of six different settings.
The master cylinder housing is machined from forged aluminium. The ultra-hard oxidised surface finish chosen for the master cylinder housing ensures outstanding wear resistance and extremely low friction between moving parts.
The floating piston and gaskets are the same as the components used in MotoGP.
