Strength:

Beautifully machined caliper and lever. Very good performance when set up correctly. Front brake has worked without fault or any maintenance.

Weakness:

Rear brake lever has suffered from a leaking resevoir cap, a leaking piston in the lever which has resulted in bleeding brake after most rides. Currently awaiting the spare parts from Hope (replaced with no questions asked, Hope have even offered to reapair the lever if I send it to them )

If only the rear didnt leak...
These are great brakes, they look the best, are better value than Hayes or XT in the UK at least.
Customer service from has been very good.
Would give them a 5 if it wasnt for the leaking!
Would suit cross country with a smaller disc, but has the power for downhill with the larger 185 or 200mm discs.

Strength:

Light, high quality, low maintainance.

Weakness:

Brake levers ratle slightly

Quality brakes from a British manufacturer main reason for purchase was the small disc avalible for the back enabling reduced buzz on my steel frame when braking. No spacers were required when used with RS forks and Shimano XT hubs. Possibly the new standard for XC disc brakes

Strength:

Great Modulation, Stop Excellent

Weakness:

My brother lost the rear dust cap today

Won't be using another set of brakes for a long time, my brother has Avids which blow in comparison. Make nose wheelies a blast. Have superb stopping power. Anyone who wants a great set of brakes and can afoord them should purchase these.
