Product Description

Calm, cool and collected. The SRAM DB5 is a no-nonsense champion for mountain bikers who want to ride bigger, steeper and harder, but who also want money left over to get there. DirectLink lever technology puts positive brake feel at your fingertips while the large-volume reservoir and proven two-piston design provide plenty of control when you need it.

Strengths:    works fairly well when not jammed up and useless

Weaknesses:    Master cylinder jams

Bottom Line:   
I had a pair of these on my 2015 Diamondback mission 2. They front brake worked for one season. The master cylinder locked up after I performed some unrelated maintenance and turned it right side up. I replaced with a different brand and had no problems since. A couple months later after driving an hour to a trail the rear brake was locked up and I couldn't ride. Same problem. The piston locked up. There is obvious issues with these brakes like I've had with no others, and I've tried many brands. I would have given 2 or 3 stars because they are decent when they work. But what good are they when they don't work when you want them to.
