Strength:

Extremely light. Looks.

Weakness:

Functionality.

I bought them 6 months ago. They look great and are very light but as far as the breaking goes... even in XC trails where breaking power is not important they did not function very well. Going down a high / steep hill is simply dangerous with these breaks.

Strength:

Light weight and easy to set up. Works with shimano rotors and shimano pads

Weakness:

lever feels fragile

My Wife has these brakes one her bike. Running them with 160mm centerlock shimano rotors front and rear. They have been great stoppers and problem free this whole year. They look great and were very easy to set-up. These are the ones with stainless steel lines. The levers feel a little fragile and would probably bend with a good tree strike. For the weight and the price at the time of purchase there was nothing better out there.

Strength:

Light, cheap, look

Weakness:

Levers look kinda cheapish and feel cheap too.
Need to remove everything from bars to mount.

Not very powerful (but they're not made to be), maybe a bit more power than my deores, but definitely much less than the oro K24.
Rear brake lever not going back to start position after couple of rides, probably got air in there...but then again I was doing DH off Mt Ventoux, which they are not really intended for. Gets hot very quickly in descent, due to minimal amount of oil in them.
Do their job very well on normal XC, but don't push the limits.
Great value, but lever quality and mount system could be better.
