Pros: Decent power and good modulation all wrapped in one. Love the top loading pads making these brakes so much user friendly

Cons: None.

Recommendation: Compared to a few years back the new Elixir CR (X9) work so much better. The improved taper bore makes for a better modulating brake. The design of the carbon lever is comfortable in the hand and requires not too much force with a finger to bring the bike to a fast stop. For anything less than FR bike these will work fine with plenty of stopping power. the choice of 203,185,160mm will cover your style. I ended up using 185mm on the front and 160mm sized rotors on my 5.5" bike. Did I mention the reds look bling.
