    So I have just won a set of V4’s in a raffle! Are the new Tech 4’s a lot nicer feel than the Tech 3’s?. Any longer term reviews?

    @RickDraper – Depends what you mean by feel.
    I’ve had a set of Tech 4 levers for a few months now, and still have tech 3’s on the trail bike. I don’t really notice the change in lever shape I just mounted them a fraction further in-board on the bar.
    To me they feel like they’ve traded a little modulation for a bit more bite early in the stroke. Whether that’s a good thing or not is subjective. Personally I like them a lot, but then I always liked the Tech 3’s too.

    When I mentioned feel I should have said I didn’t mean the feel on the finger of the lever, I meant the feel of the braking power. I always found the Tech 3’s (Only tried the E4’s) to feel a bit underpowered and I had to really pull on the lever to get the power I wanted.

    For reference I will either be moving some Trickstuff Maxima or some Direttissima to try the V4’s.

    That’s what they’ve meant to have “fixed” – haven’t fitted mine yet so can’t say. But I’d agree that the tech 3 v4, although they have bags of power, you have to give them a decently firm squeeze to access it. The tech 3 V4’s most definitely aren’t underpowered, but they hid it deep in the lever stroke.
