Strength:

Work Great.
Look Great.
Bleed Easy.

Weakness:

Expensive but I found them for $400 for a set.

Overall, very nice brakes. The machining is very cool looking. The black anodize finish is very tough. They work almost flawlessly. The pads drag a tiny bit. The RaceX2 light rotors are a bit thin. I like Avid CSG3s for these.

Strength:

After 7 years on Avid juicy and them being now obsolete it was time for a change. No more adjustment for the sake of it time for simple and reliable. The race x2 is as good as it gets for XC no problems and I don't expect any.
So simple to bleed unlike the other brands avid and formula. Non of that have got it right on the first run.

Weakness:

Naming convention you could end up with ugly tech leaver with lots of useless knobs on.

keep it simple!

Light, feel and power. Cool looks when matched with hope pro 2 hubs & floating 160 rotors. Easy set up just ride. They stop in the wet very stylish and rare compared to avid etc.

Weakness:

need to come with the match maker clamps.

Buy these if you want something different that just works! no set up issues fit and ride.
