          Comments about SRAM Apex Road Brakes:

          These replaced a pair of 13 years old Tektro calipers on my old road bike restoration project. They certainly look light, skeletal almost, even if I can't perceive any obvious weight difference by just holding them in my hands. I combined them with Shimano 105 shifters.
          Braking feels somewhat different comparing to the Ultegra brakes that I am used to. SRAM seems to engage earlier when squeezing the levers while the brake pads seem to produce less friction. I am considering replacing the pads but first will try them with Shimano pads I already own to see if that makes any difference.
          Now this is obviously my subjective observation or more just a feeling. But no means I am suggesting thet these brakes are unusable or don't work for what they were designed for.
          Bottomline: The price was right and these brakes are satisfactory for my spare/bad-weather training bike.

            Breaking feels somewhat different comparing to the Ultegra brakes of my main bike. SRAM seems to be engaging earlier when squeezing the levers while the brake pads seem to be producing less friction. I am considering reclacing the pads (will test the brakes with Shimano pads I already own first to see if that makes any real difference).
            Now, these are certainly highly subjective observations and by no means I am suggesting that these brakes are unusable or don't work for what they were designed for.

              I use these brakes on my road bike, and they have been great for all the rides I've done. They stop quickly, and have a nice feel to them. The only drawback would probably be weight, but for the price I can't complain about that.

              Comments about SRAM Apex Road Brakes:

              Like everything else in the Apex group, they have great functionality for the price. The biggest draw back is the weight but other than that they are great. These weigh 308g a pair vs. the Force groups 280g a pair. This really isn't that much making them a great value!

              Comments about SRAM Apex Road Brakes:

              Got these for a rebuild of an older bike, using them with Shimano 105 5700 shifters.

              Installation was easy; pad adjustment was great (no squeaking even the first time out), look sharp.

              These are great replacements for the decade-old house brand brakes I used to have. Not flexy at all. The first time I used them, I almost locked up the tires - there's next to no flex after they contact the tire.

              Works well with pulling wheels on and off - flip the release lever and it opens WAAY up.

              Overall these brakes have been a fantastic experience, saved my keester more than once. Good construction, well designed, easy installation, quick release for tire changes. If your looking for something that will never need to be upgraded unless you switch to STI shifters you've found your mate.
