Strength:

None

Weakness:

These brakes would not stop a fairy on my bike going uphill, never mind downhill, period.

You are warned , dont buy these brakes at all. You will endo on any downhill or single track, anywhere. Save up and buy Hayes hydraulics, that's what I am doing and I know I wont be sorry. My overall rating is actually a zero but I could only give one chilli. In SA we have no after sales service.

Strength:

look alright, work in the , more powerful than Vs, people think your bike is good if they cant see how bad this disc brake is.

Weakness:

broke on me, in less than a year it has needed 2 new cables (£3 each), a new set of pads (£14 for a pair), and the lever resplining (£15)still wouldnt lock the wheel very satisfactfully

good but not that good.

Strength:

None what so ever

Weakness:

Don't break, but breaks all the time. Fragile and complicated to adjust.

The brakes are a nightmare and a sorry escuze for brakes. Not even worth recycle them. They don't even come close to Shimano V Brakes.
