Brakes are a key component when it comes to stopping. Without the ability to stop, it'll be hard to go fast anywhere. Hydraulic disc brakes provide a new level of stopping power over mechanical disc brakes. They require little to no adjustments and provide excellent braking power. The TRP Hylex RS Disc Brakes have ergonomic brake levers and perfectly sizes hoods that create a natural feel and extension. They use mineral oil and have semi-metallic pads. If you're looking for excellent disc brakes for your single speed, then you'll want some TRP Hylex RS Disc Brakes.
Ergonomic levers provide a natural feel and extension
Decent build quality, looks great, but has one major flaw.
The brakes look great, quality materials were used and stylistically it is very modern looking. Pretty much exactly what I hoped for.
The build quality is overall quite good, but out of the box one brake was missing the clip on the pad retainer bolt. And while bleeding I noticed that both o-rings (on the 2 brakes I bought) on the bleeding port were pinched by the bleed screw during their initial assembly creating a less than ideal seal.
The biggest issue and their major flaw is that there is not enough piston movement from the brakes to allow you to center the calipers on your rotor without any form of rubbing. I'm normally okay with minor rubbing as it's mostly just noise, but this is sufficient rubbing to slow the wheel down noticeably.
I've dealt with hydraulic brakes from several manufacturers and have never had this amount of rubbing on both brakes. I can't use my bike with these brakes, but there are no real alternatives (hydraulic road brakes without shifter levels).
