Universal vs ISO disk hubs

I putting togher a new set of disk wheels, and really like Chris King hubs (since my current hubs are the Chris King Classic hubs, btw they're awesome), and I would like to run Marta SL disk brakes, so the million bucks question is: ISO disk hubs are the one right??? What about Avid? What kind of hubs they requires?

Thanks in advance.

I'm certain that the Magura calipers take an ISO disc mount and the rotors are standard 6-bolt. They will most likely need an adapter (probably included) to mount to a manitou fork since manitou uses a post mount.

He's asking about the hubs. not the caliper mounts. I just remember seeing some funky four bolt patterns a while back. I remember Coda was infamous for those and I think Magura produced some fours as well.

The Chris King ISO's refers to the rotor bolt pattern and it IS 6-bolt. You just have to make sure the Magura's rotors are 6-bolt. Remember Magura made some rotors for Cannondale using their 4-bolt pattern.

Right... and they're 6-bolt. The magura Marta rotor is actually the identical rotor to the avid-branded one I'm using on my bike right now. They'll work.

Thanks guys, this is my 1st attempt to build up a disk brake bike so I'm pretty out of the current tech.
