lever durability

Other Thoughts

These are fantastic out of the box. Much more powerful with great modulation, compared to the old Elixer 3's they replaced. I use them w/the Hope sawtooth rotors and the system looks very tricked out. I still like them a lot, except the levers could be a bit more durable. The levers bend easily and one light hit introduced a small bit of play to the lever action before they start to engage. I tried to work it out with several bleeds of the system, but that did not eliminate the issue. They still work very well. But the delayed engagement, after the small hit, dampens my overall satisfaction a little.

Pros

This set went on a Fat bike used in weather as cold as sub zero. They performed flawlessly and are nearly as good as my Shimano brakes are in the summer. I chose these because Shimano and other mineral oil brake sets perform poorly or not at all in sub zero temps. These are very light with excellent modulation and offer brake bleeding and hose reduction with no special tools. Brake fluid was bought from local auto parts store instead of bike store so 1/4th the cost.

Cons

None
