Model/Year: 2014

Pros: These are some great brakes with greatly enhanced power and modulation over the XO/Elixer brakes I've been using for the last three years. The four piston design gives you a very smooth feel and the new lever design removes any dead space in the lever pull. Braking is immediate when you touch the levers. This is a huge upgrade over previous offerings. Design uses same clamp design integration with shifters.

Cons: None found so far.

Recommendation: I've never had any problems with my XO/Elixers but I definitely felt an immediate difference. Everything is loose and dusty right now in SoCal so anything steep is usually a controlled slide down a silt and rock filled rut. I felt an improvement in the ability to control my braking and avoid the skid. Very confidence inspiring brakes.
