Brembo Corsa Corta Front Brake Master Cylinder
Feel and consistent, proven performance thatís adaptable to a wide range of riding conditions Ė thatís what you get with the 19RCS Corsa Corta brake master cylinder from Brembo. Thereís not a single OEM master cylinder on the market that comes close to the adjustability of this piece. And by adjustability, we donít mean reach to the lever (though, that too, can be changed) Ė weíre talking about how your fingersí articulation are translated to friction at the brake pad and rotor interface.
Starting with Bremboís well-known RCS (Ratio Click System), the pivot point of the lever-to-piston interface is changed. This, of course, varies the leverage required to deliver stopping power. You get 19 x 18, 19 x 18 and 19 x 20 master cylinder ratios at the twist of a knob. These leverage ratios allow the rider to tune the amount of braking power delivered to the calipers. But it doesnít stop there when youíve got a Corsa Corta. Brembo engineers designed what they refer to as a mapping system.
This mapping system, which has three different settings, each of which can be used at any ratio Ė adjusts the initial bite of the brake pads:
N = normal map. With this selection, you get a gradual initial bike which is best for road-going or rain-riding conditions.
S = sport map. This setting provides a slightly stronger initial bite thatís suitable for spirited road-riding or the entry-level trackday rider.
R = race map. This selection, obviously Ė provides the most initial bite and, as the name implies, is suitable for the most demanding of riding conditions.
As you can see, versatility is assured via the combination of leverage ratio and mapping adjustments, all in one Italian-made brake master cylinder.
The root of the system, Bremboís proven 19mm piston, resides in a hard-anodized, forged aluminum chassis. All the fixtures for the fluid reservoir, lever pivot, brake piston &etc. are fitted to CNC-machined ports for a leak-free fit. When you examine this Brembo master cylinder, the quality of construction is readily apparent.
If youíve only got one for road and track, and want to improve braking performance, the 19RCS Corsa Corta provides the flexibility you need for all riding conditions. Thereís no other unit quite like it on the market today.
Each Corsa Corta comes with all the required components to mount on just about any modern sport bike for road or track use. You get the folding lever, master cylinder assembly, double banjo bolt and, for road-going bikes, a removable brake light activation switch in one box.
