These brakes are much smoother, more modulated, and more powerful than sram brakes. When I say these brakes are powerful I mean that the sheer power of these brakes parted the Red Sea, not Moses. I found that these brakes have greater horizontal clearance than my previous sram rival 22 brakes (I have Hed Belgium plus rims). They come equipped with some great break pads and look fantastic. I have been racing on these for a bit now and they are non-finicky and lack any faults. The aesthetics beauty of these brakes far exceeds Michelangelo's David and the build quality is only dreamt of by German engineers.
These are the best brakes I have ever used. I had a set of CNC brakes that were pretty good but these just work. I hope to do an entire custom build on a carbon frame and these are on the build sheet. I did use different brake pads but the same pads I have used for the past few years so it really boils down to the caliper itself.
