I want to buy a set of new brakes for dh use.
Zee's seem to be amazing from a lot of reviews i read.
I found, for just 90$ more, a pair of the new 2017 guide rsc with the S4 caliper.

What would you buy?
I am really tempted for the guides, but i am a bit concerned of the issues that read in multiple forums.

Cheers!

I have both. I'd do the Zees for a DH bike. The guides on my trailbike are great, but I think Shimano's do better.

I have Guides on my new bike now and have gone to the bike park 3 or 4 times thus far. Not a lot. The brakes are very soft now and was going to my tech to get them serviced. He convinced me to change over to Shimano's. Recommended the 4 piston Zees first, but also highly recommended the XTs as well. I have XTs on my older trail bike and I never had a problem with them (tho I never took that bike to the bike park).

I'll be ordering XTs thru my shop tomorrow.
