Easy to install
Easy to adjust for reach and engagement
Can be installed without removing grips
I store my bike hanging vertically, and the brakes don't seem to be negatively affected, like some others
These are not cheap, however watch ebay, as I got some as "new take-offs" with rotors included and saved about $200 off retail.
If you are a serious rider, and ride serious trails, and want to install some hydraulic brakes and have them just work each and every time you need them, get these. You get what you pay for and these are well worth the investment.
By the way, I weigh 200lbs and ride a 28lb bike. Even with one finger I can lock up both wheels. The power and modulation on these is incredible, yet they are still light enough to be considered XC.
