For the money it does NOT get any better than this. If you are looking for some cantis for your cross bike than pick these! I would suggest them even over the most expensive canti brakes. You cant beat the prie. You are getting top of the line quality, and durability.
The price was so good, and I was so happy with this product that I bought an extra one just to have!

So far these have been a marginal upgrade. The major benefit to this point is that they are less fiddly to set up than the Oryx brakes, more easily adjusted, and don't seem nearly as prone to chatter or squealing.
Given the way the brake arms are set up, I would have expected more power out of them, but they have no more braking power than the Oryx line. I'm keen to try these with kool stop salmon pads, as the stock pads, while okay I guess, are pretty weak in any kind of wet weather - they seem to be able to slow the bike alright, but bringing it to a complete halt is another matter, which is odd.
Still, for the price, not too shabby. If you're thinking of doing what other reviewers have done, and decide to pick up some kool stop salmon pads, be aware that that you'll need the kool stop pads with the narrower stem (the stem comes in two sizes as far as I understand it - the thicker stem will not pass through the hole on these brakes).
Installation was a breeze mostly, no troubles at all. The braking feel is much firmer, better feel. Unfortunately, the braking power seems to be not much improved vs. the 992A's. Perhaps my bike is too heavy, but I'm used to much better performance from my caliper brakes on my lighter road bikes, even in the wet. Will try better pads later, but quite satisfied with these brakes, especially for the price.
PROS: Easy To Install, Lightweight, Sturdy Design
