Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Fitted as replacement for hayes 9 which I could not get spares for. The hope brakes fitted straight onto the mounts and were made in the UK

Excellent performance and so reliable.

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Looks great
I have a pair on my Orange 5 and bought these as replacements on my son's bike. They look good, they are reliable and they have a graduated feel under braking which I like. The pads are easily replaced on the trail.I bought them with Goodrich steel braiding which is great protection. The only problem is that shortening the pipes with this braiding is a bit tricky.

Idiot proof setup, good modulation, made in uk

PostedDecember 28, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Ordered a front and rear after debating against Avid 7, arrived in a simple box with just the leaver and caliper pre bleed, two screws, some nice Made in Britain stickers to stick to things, two mount screws (no mount), and a manual which was shorter than some Ive had just for a seatpost however i found out why. The setup out the box is idiot proof, all i had to do was remove pads to push piston back to fit over disk. fitted onto my shimano mounts no problem using my current disks. There is a bear handed hardcore man on a how to video of hope brake bleeding, but i have no reason to, works right out box even in this endless winter rain. Engagement adjustment doesn't allow for instant wheel lock with a tap of the finger but good modulation especially on xc rides. cables are long they just vary in length for rear and back. Aesthetics is marmite situation but i love them for there quality mechanical and prison feel.

Great brakes, easy to set up

PostedJune 18, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Simple to install and set up. Really surprised by how good the graduated feel is to just scrub a little speed rather than stop as you come up to a corner...other brakes I've used in the same price bracket aren't as subtle. Loads of easy adjustment on the levers to get set up perfectly. Ideal for trail and XC, but maybe a bit on the weak side for DH

Good product does what it says on the tin

PostedMay 9, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Been really happy with the brake, good value for money and made in England too. My only issue is that i like very little free play in my brakes and i thought that the bite adjustment would enble me to reduce this, it does to some extent but not totally to my liking
