Pros: modulation, power, length between bleeds, good sales

Cons: none

Recommendation: These are the best brakes I have used. They are easy to use, never need bleeding and have great stopping power. They are also rather affordable when you can find them on sale

Pros: Awesome modulation really help carry speed down the trail. The ergonomics are great, even for people with smaller hands. Setting these brakes up for one-finger braking is idiot-proof. These brakes have the power when you need it and can scrub speed better than most other brakes I have ridden.

Cons: I found myself going through a lot of brake pads, however I like the modulation of organics more than sintered so it's probably my own fault.

Recommendation: If you are on your first set of brakes and are looking to upgrade, it's harder to find a better AM brakeset.

Pros: Great all around brake--no obvious weaknesses.

Cons: None worth mentioning.

Recommendation: These brakes came stock on my new Yeti Seven and they were a pleasant surprise. They are the most reliable and trouble free discs I've owned (vs Hayes el camino which couldn't handle abuse and Avid Juicy 7 which were in constant need of adjustment). The levers area also a perfect fit for my hands--no cramping on long downhills! We'll see if they stand up over the long run!

Pros: Decent power, but the best feature is the smooth lever action. The pin and ability to remove the pads without taking off the wheel is another good feature.

Cons: When the pads are worn down the caliper pistons tend to stick.

Recommendation: A decent set up but not a fan of the smallish pistons which I have had sieze up due to the pads worn low. Now if your a person who regularly check out there equipment then it shouldn't be an issue.

Pros: Awesome stopping power with little to no effort. The brakes broke in super fast. I have had no problems with fade, nice firm feel when applying the brakes. I have Absolute faith in the brakes while riding down extreme trails. They look great too!

Cons: nothing!

Recommendation: Buy these if you want great performance with superior looks! I have riden these breaks hard through the mud, dirt, rocks and snow and no problems whatsoever.
