    Strengths:    - Stiff.
    - Resonably light but light for a metal booster.
    - Good range of colours (I got the SID Blue one).
    - Mounting hardware included.
    - Tyre clearance better than a carbon fibre one that was next to this but it had on mounting hardware.


    Weaknesses:    - Abit pricy if it wasn' discounted.
    - No instructions on the packaging.


    Bottom Line:   
    - Stiff and sexy like functional bike porn should be. Salsa's Arc-de-tri-omp petty cool and similar price

    Strengths:    stiffness, look

    Weaknesses:    price (should be somewhat lower - currency ratio was not good for USD at the time)

    Bottom Line:   
    Every booster bends unfortunately (especially with Avid arches), but this one gives substantial improvement over plain Tektro.
    Finally I cannot fully squeeze rear brake lever and it yields in brake reliability.

    Beacause of price I'd recommend Roox only on rear brake - fork is usually stiff enough - so add overweight only where it's necessary

    If you need quality booster - this is the one.
