Strength:

OK they are Maguras if you want to know there strengths read the other reviews.

Weakness:

Paint rubs off(damn shame), Alloy boosters flex a bit to much(Put a regular steel booster behind it)

Why are we telling you how good they are because there are very few sets in the world and I swapped a set of Tomacs for mine. For the Ultimate look mate them with some braided hosing. The only downside is that the boosters are now avilable to anyone

Strength:

Look cool, easy to remove from frame when cleaning the bike.
Very good brake performance indry conditions. THe stock brake pads don't sathisfy in wet weather. Take Kool Stop pads.

Weakness:

The brakes won't stay equal in line with the wheel after a few 6 months. They do need to be serviced.

Would recommend these to everyone!

Just for fun I'm gonna take discbrakes on my new bike.

Strength:

oh my god! they are absolutely beautiful!oh and all that other stuff that you'd expect from magura hydraulics...
-good power
-)y modulation
-pad adjusters at your finger tips
-the best network of support (just check out the brake section in techtalk)plus with the frogs you get -
-azonic boosters made from aluminum which i think is nominially lighter than

Weakness:

well - they are a bit pricey... but not that much more than a comparable set of v's.the paint chips away which makes me sad :(so strong that they flex out my rear seat stays even when i have a booster.wish it came with a bleedkit (you may not need to do maintainance but after installing them, you may need to top off a bit)$1 for an olive? what the hell is wrong with that picture?and the free mousepad isn't as glorious as i had been led to believe.

don't believe the hype - maguras are not that difficult to set up! i actually really enjoy working on them... too bad they're practically maintainance free :) ...
i already placed a review for these in the generic hs-33 section because that's all they are... except they come with better boosters and better levers (if you are supersticious about having an alloy blade rather than the thermoplastic - like i am)perfect scores in the looks, dependability, quality, and customer support categories
