The German made master cylinders and non-metal levers use carbon fibres (MT 6, 7, 8, and Trail) and the more budget options use glass fibres (MT Sport, 4, 5, Trail Sport). One of the things I’ve always appreciated about Magura is they really are a manufacturing business first. Yes, they do marketing. Yes, I know that’s become an industry cliche used to justify some stupid stuff - Overdrive Steerer tunes for example - but  it’s actually true in this case.  I try not to use the word ‘plastic’ because it’s so generic. These blades are glass fibre (like the Resin flat pedals I so love) and use the same material that Magura uses in the masters and also clutch bodies for BMW Enduro motorcycles. Everything breaks sometimes but I’ve had great experiences with the durability of Magura’s high end and more budget options. I’ve never had an issue with the coarse crews across many brakes - or heard of an issue for that matter.
