Strengths:    stiff and strong, relatively light

Weaknesses:    not the best lever.

Bottom Line:   
Wow, I used to work for this company and I never knew they came to distribute in the states. Overall the lever is ok,not the best, but it doesnt get pivot slop because of its design wich is cool. the warranty hassles youre going to have to go through are tremendous, as it really is a small machine shop inside seoul Korea. They make a lot of really cool parts, but the levers arent the best.

Bottom Line:   

An update on these levers. I'm not the only one having trouble with these levers. The manager at my friendly bike shop told me the company is having lotsa returns on these levers, and they won't ship new ones until the new models are built. Too bad because they were nice levers. Too bad that once again the consumer is the guinea pig. At least it's warrantied and I will be credited.

I assume I could find XT levers much cheaper than Saints, but what compromises would I be making? Are the piston differences that may be noticeable? Who has franken brake setups ... Read More »

XTR BR985 brake levers vs. BR988 ?

Looking at the BR 985 and BR 988 brake levers and you can help me decide. Considering that they will not be used for extreme riding, that Shimano suggests the 988 is for, is the extra weight of the 988 worth the extra adjustability? I mean how often would you use those adusters and in the end would ... Read More »

Gore cables with top mount levers

I'm installing a set of gore brake cables on my cross bike. Do I need to cut the liner for the top mount levers, or do I leave it intact? I don't want it to bind in the lever or have the liner too short at the caliper. Any advice would be appreciated. ThanksRead More »

Longer Levers on XT brakes

1 finger braking capability is great, but I simply like to ride with 2 fingers on the brake levers. XT levers are too short for me. Is there any way to get XT (or Saint or Zee or ??) brakes with longer levers?Read More »

KCNC X7 levers and hose with Shimano XT caliper - Any chance?

Hello, Couple of days ago while leaving from work, I noticed that somebody had cut my brake hose and stolen my KCNC X7 rear brake caliper! I was shocked because I cannot understand that what he will do with it (in Finland, markets are small so its hard to sell that specific piece). Anyway, I ... Read More »
