Great stopping power, much better than the mechanical ones I had on there. Truly super easy to put on, but you do need to have some knowledge and skill to do it correctly
I put these on myself, which probably wouldn't have been so bad if I knew a little more about bike maintenance. After about a month when I took the bike in to get serviced and a professional got his hands on it, THAT made all the difference in the world! Fantastic brakes, a really big step up from mechanical discs.
Good, with some reservations
Great when set up correctly (don't forget your compressionless cables!). I went from some crappy ProMax brakes to these and the difference is night and day.
Rather expensive especially with new cables. Unconventional design, a lot of bike shops get confused by them. If your local bike shop has mechanics who trust their gut more than the manufacturer's official product documentation, and you have neither the tools nor the inclination to install brakes (and probably new cables), you're probably better off with a more "traditional" design like Spyres or BB7s.
A bit of a pain to get set up, especially getting told wrong information by multiple bike shops, but well worth the trouble when I eventually found a shop with a mech that was willing to slow down and RTFM.
Manufacturer was very responsive to emailed technical questions - way exceeded my expectations.
