PROS: durability, Strong Braking Power
BEST USES: Race, Road
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.
PROS: Looks sharp, Shiny, Great grabbing power
CONS: Almost too grabby
BEST USES: Crits, Road bike
PROS: feel, Power
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.
