4/5 (3 Reviews)

Product Description

The bigger diameter pistons(24mm) and mono block caliper made by cold forged process design for durability and reinforced power under high torque riding conditions.

The volume of the caliper looks biggish, but the weight is less 6g than Shimano xt.(Please refer to "Our products\Weight Comparison Sheet");Finished with fine sandblast and anodizing enhaced the brakes. It very suitable for the off road.

Ergonomic 3-finger lever design, the gap with grip is adjustable.

Bottom Line:   
Saw the review on Pinkbike (http://www.pinkbike.com/u/grobertson90/blog/Hygia-Brakes-Full-Review.html) after seeing these on ebay. I figured what do i have to lose. they arrived quickly and installed really easily (I was able to do it without braking or stripping something). the feel is great. they stop my fat @ss and i couldn't be happier with my $140 purchase.

Strengths:    Strong stopping power, great feel, one finger use, ease of setup,

Weaknesses:    whilst Hygia pads did the job there are better.

Bottom Line:   
Loved these brakes from the word go. They pull my 100kg frame up well with little effort but are still great in flowing single track where delicate braking is required with out locking up. Tested it on "Cannon Ball" (McFails fire trail Kangaroo Valley NSW) and found them faultless after 20 minutes of solid hard use.
