Strengths:    Very beefy lever, I doubt they would would crap out in a crash. Multiple adjustments for reach, cable pull, etc. Good braking feel at the levers.

Weaknesses:    None yet. Maybe the weight.

Bottom Line:   
These are an excellent Freeride or trail bike levers. Great deal.

Date Reviewed: August 8, 2002

Strengths:    Florange colour, bombproof looking (probably are, but I,m out of bombs right now), ajustability (what the heck are those lever mounted ajusters for? I need some info to set these up properly), very stiff!

Weaknesses:    No website I can find. Maybe I have last year's levers, as I had to do the grip/everything removal dance to install them, but that is fairly normal.

Bottom Line:   
These levers really cleaned up the un-modulatable braking from the powertools KHS system which came with the bike.
Braking suddenly became fully modulateable, powertool brake arms saving themselves from the parts bin.
I was very happy with this choice, which was an impulse buy due to th colour. They are not the lightest, (same as powertools), and are a bit bulky, but I will probably be hospitalised if I break them; they may be the last levers I ever buy based on the construction.

Strengths:    stiff, strong, don't have to take the grips off to mount, the "torque twist" thing is cool, they look mad, and there's just an air of "this is the SH1T" from them.

Weaknesses:    the levers are a little square compared to say Avids, but it's not annoying or anything.... so i guess it doesn't really count as a weakness.

Bottom Line:   
These levers are good. maybe not quite as comfy as Avids, but i have no reason to want to change them. they're nice and stiff, and you get the feeling that all the power you put in is being transmitted to the brakes rather than soaked up in flex.

class act.
