Strengths:    Very light action (almost too light); tool free reach adjustability

Weaknesses:    agree with others here that free stroke adjustment doesn't work...wish adjustment/cap screws were all Allen head or Torx instead of cheap cross/Philips

Bottom Line:   
I upgraded my Avid BB7 with SD7 levers and replaced them with Deore XT complete brake set-up and I would say it definitely equals the BB7 in terms of power. It is actually much more responsive than a BB7 with Gore cables. It is TRUE ONE FINGER BRAKING. Very, very comfortable lever shape, very firm, solid feel at the lever, not a whisker of sponginess.

Strengths:    Lotta Stopping Power, but without being Bitey. Look Great, and They are reliable like nothing else I know. Self adjustment is better than any that I have ever used.

Weaknesses:    None thus far in use. I haven't ridden them yet in cold weather, that seems to be the only thing that people have problems with

Bottom Line:   
Great brakes, Little pricey but that can be solved by looking around for a good price. They ride great and don't overheat. Quality Brakes from a reputable company.

Strengths:    great feel...great stoping power... easy to fit....the looks of it/design

Weaknesses:    none so far....maybe the price

Bottom Line:   
theese are a great set of brakes.... great looking.....impresive braking power...a bit spicy on the price but worth every penny...
easy to fit by the manual.... the brakes need about 10-15 minutes of riding and braking until they start to kick in hard

Date Reviewed: August 23, 2008

Strengths:    Strong, adjustable, reliable, no fade, great modulation, enviromentaly friendly, looks great.

Weaknesses:    expensive. came with bike but if I ever rip one off on a tree I'll need a loan for new ones.

Bottom Line:   
I'm a bike tech and I live and ride in the mountains. I've serviced and ridden almost everything. These are the best mixture of raw power, modulation, looks and reliabilty I have ever ridden. I love my bike and I love the new xt group cause it works, period. If you grab a handfull of brake you better be ready because you are stopping NOW. only 4 chili's cause they are expensive, but they are worth it for any bike genre.
