ProsPlain end simple.... They Work
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
Prosmodulation, power, length between bleeds, good sales
If you are on your first set of brakes and are looking to upgrade, it's harder to find a better AM brakeset.
ProsAwesome 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.
ConsI 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.
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!
ProsGreat all around brake--no obvious weaknesses.
ConsNone worth mentioning.
i would recommend these still my favorite on the market for the price.
Prosvery nice good power nice levers.
Conswell it seems like they have good days and bad days like one day they work great then not so good might be me idk.
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.
ProsAwesome 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!
