Could be of better quality but then the price would go up.

A good (not great)lever for the Avid mechanical disc brakes, good looks, quality could be better,good price, better modulation than other levers, Avid makes better qualtiy brake levers but they cost more.

Strength:

Solid design, good modulation.

Weakness:

None yet.

For me, they work great. They came as stock equipment on my bike and I never had the problem of not stopping when I want to (thatÿs what really counts). Fast and responsive.

Weakness:

not very smooth or comfortable, lever too long

I personally don't like these levers at all. I seems like Avid levers are just put on an assemble line and not put through many tests. The lever is too long for my preference. I honestly don't like avid products.

Strength:

there are none

Weakness:

No responsiveness. You pull and pull and then it sticks and skids. No feel whatsoever.

I have played around with my brakes and can't get any "feel" with this brake lever. I'm riding it seems with no brakes at all and there is no way to adjust them. Not great for small hands either. Especially terrible for the rear brake....not good.
