    These are fine, but if you can spring for an XT set they're well worth it. I found that SLX needed a bit more paying attention to than XT in terms of maintenance, and didn't have the same feel of quality; a very on-off feel

    Pros
    Low maintenance, easy to use

    Cons
    Spongy feel at first, lack of modulation

    I didn't know that there was that great of difference in stopping power from mechanical and hydraulic brakes on a mountain bike. I test drove a Cannondale Trigger and locked the tires up every time I hit the brakes. This prompted me to check into the upgrade. I went to Wheelsports and got the hook from Bulldog78 . I got these brakes for a great price and put them on myself. These brakes have more than enough stopping power for the riding I do. I have put a little over 40 miles on them and they have been the quietest brakes I have owned. I will follow up on these brakes after I have done some more miles. . I would recommend these brakes to anyone wanting to upgrade from mechanical brakes.

    Pros
    Great stopping power, look nice, easy to install, and almost weighs the same as my mechanical brakes.

    Cons
    None

    I say no cons. As with any other Shimano product that I've used, you go through the progression of SX/SLX to XT to XTR. As you go up, you get a little better performance, a little lighter and a little to a lot more money. You decide what's important to you. In brakes, I am more than happy with the performance of these. The gains in weight and/or performance are not worth the increase in price...for me anyway. But, with the XT versions being on sale recently for $100 ea, that might be a difference maker. Not enough for me to rip and replace these though.

    Pros
    great feel
    nice stopping power
    weight isn't too bad either

    Cons
    none
