- Suggest some new brakes to me
Bit pricey for sure but I feel that xtr are worth every penny – the levers are beautiful … Mine have been a fit and forget component. .. Even with my windcutter rotors the stopping power is firm and reliable and they modulate perfectly… With icetech rotors I bet they would be beasts…Posted 3 years agoMSPSubscriber
My requirements are, I am quite a big chap so something more powerfull, and I don’t really like much modulation I prefer a more binary feel.
Was looking at shimano xt, but they make a big deal about modulation so may not be for me. And quite like the look of formula T1, but recall problems when they first came out.
Any other suggestions?Posted 3 years agomintimperialSubscriber
The most recent Shimanos are quite binary, in my opinion – in a good way. I vastly prefer them to the Hopes and Formulas I’ve used, both of which had more “modulation” (or sponginess). The new XTs are brilliant, but the cheaper Deores are just as good in terms of feel, just a bit heavier and a bit simpler.
I’ve also used Avids, which felt pretty good at first, but after a couple of months stopped working, and then exploded in an enormous fireball, as is usual with Avids.Posted 3 years ago
