The Good: I found these brakes bed in really fast and the power was there after a few runs and once the brakes are fully worn in the power is unbelievable! It definitely is a good thing that they are not this powerful straight off the bat because it allows the rider to get progressively used to such a strong brake.
The Bad: The only downfall I think is the lack of modulation especially on the front it seems. The range of the lever when pulled between off and on is quite small and it took some time to get used to not over braking or sliding.Overall Review: I have not had a chance to ride the brakes in the mud/rain but they work well in the dry and the pad longevity is really good. I have plenty of meat left on them after a lot of harsh riding. Im really impressed with these brakes and the modulation issue is just something which the rider learns to adapt to
