Strength:

It is a disc brake, so works in worse conditions than a rim brake.

Weakness:

Low power, overheats easily

I received these on an Urban Arrow cargo bike. They are a joke for a cargo bike that is used even on moderate hills (say more than 20 - yes, twenty - meters of height). On totally flat they suffice.I had a scare going down a steeper hill with the breaks going limp. They did manage to stop the bike, but only at the foot of the hill, had it been a longer descent I would had a bad accident. They are unable to lock the tires unless the bike is empty, without load.

Probably good for kids' bikes, I would not want to rely on these if I was an adult rider.

Strength:

Plenty of power, great feel, easy to bleed

Weakness:

None so far

Came stock on my 2014 trek x caliber 8. Never had any issues with them at all just replacing pads and have bled them 2 times now. I'm a big boy at 6'2 and 240lb and they have enough power to slow me down. They're not meant for high speed down hill riding (ie: 45MPH To 5 mph) but they do a great job for xc riding.

Strength:

Plenty of power

Weakness:

Makes a 'Pop' noise when you go deep into the brakes as the pad shifts forward, seems to only happen when your near lock up or bearing down hard and hit a bump.

Plenty of power but much better control/feel when the rotors are kept clean.

Strength:

baratos e funcionais

Weakness:

pouca força e pouca modulação

Eu tenho estes travões na minha 29er AM com discos de 180mm.
Eles fazem o trabalho deles, não falham nem complicam e mantém um funcionamento constante. Mas a modulação na travagem é quase inexistente, outro problema consiste no fato de ser preciso fazer uma força relativa na maneta para conseguir travar em descidas acentuadas. Mas como estamos a fazer uma força relativa, associado à pouca modulação, facilmente os discos ficam bloqueados.

Strength:

1) CHEAP.....2) 100% RELIABLE .....3) SIMPLE

Weakness:

NOT enough power at this time for my very fast DH mountain, I hit 45 on sections and have to slow to 5 dozens of times to make sharp corners and there is no way to single finger my corner entries I have to grab with 2 fingers and get sore cramps, that did not happen with my old Trail Strokers ( when they worked lol ) Don't expect miracles , there is a reason they are a lot cheaper than other Shimano's. I will switch out to bigger modern rotors & pads and re-evaluate. Yes buy them if Your new to MTB'ing or low on cash, if not then pass them up and get XTR's....cheers

Mineral oil , no water or heat fade + . Lack of high end brake system real power - You decide

Strength:

Cheap , work consistently everytime, great power, look smart too!

Weakness:

None there outstanding!

These came on my scott hardtail, had avid elixir on my other bike which where inconsistent all the time never felt the same day to day but these are all over them! Feel the same everyday, lever stays at the same position and very consistent . Resin pads work great wet or shine , im using the rotors that come with them and they have great power and the pads are lasting very well even though i love using all the power. You can see small marks on the body of the lever where its cast so you can see how they make them this cheap but its not a complaint, they do look good, kind of a stealthy look. If shimanos cheap brakes are this good XT must be amazing will never use another make for brakes again there that good!!
