apparently they didn't think that people would ride their bikes in cold weather????

the article states that they were able to replicate the seal failure during bench testing. seems like a shoddy testing protocol if you neglect to test the brakes in the conditions many of us ride in.

OTOH everything's 20/20 through the retro-scope

Magura had the same issue with their MT-8 brakes last year. Mine were recalled as a result. Below 40F the o-ring would get hard and allow air to get in the system.
