It's not a problem in the sense you describe it, and it's a very subtle feeling. The trade-off as I see it here is modulation vs. direct power transmission. What it translates to is a brake lever that continues to use more travel after the bite point, where certain other brakes will react more to pressure after this point. For reference, it's close to a SRAM Guide brake in terms of lever feel. It does not affect the amount of power that is available, just the feeling at the lever and the way the power is delivered. Note that the "give" I identified in the lever is obviously well controlled, it's just a tiny bit more noticeable than on most other brakes I've tried. That could also be down to the fact that the lever body is particularly long, and thus any flex will be more visible at the hose end (which is where I observed it).

As for a comparison test, it's on our radar. We'll make it happen at some point. (not sure we'll have access to a dyno, but we'll do our best to cook them anyway!)

Added a new video Grounds | Yannick Granieri Revives a Vineyard 5/23/2017 9:26 AM
C138x104

Yannick Granieri's parents own an old vineyard, which ended up converted to an agricultural operation recently. When Yannick saw the state of some of the old buildings, it gave him some ideas for an unusual edit. With a lot of hard work, and Yannick's incredible talent on a bike, those ideas have now come to life!

We never said he was, only that he was the "World Cup champion". As for not loading pads from the top...is this really a deal breaker for you? Just curious.
