Best functionality ever...

Best functionality in a high end MTB brake that I have ever ridden, but with some reliability shortcomings.

I have ridden all kinds of Avid, Magura, Hope and Shimano brakes, and these are far and away the best Ive ridden. The lever size (small - 1 finger braking) is perfect and the modulation is top notch. Paired with the ice-tech rotors and I have done some serious descents with them (off the passes here in PC and Jackson) and not had any over heating, fading or squeeling. EAT THAT AVIDS.

One problem popped up however with the hose at the crimp for the banjo bolt into the caliper. On my first set, both the front and rears began to leak fluid, which in turn flowed down onto the pads. Riding the ribbon in Grand junction with no front brake was not awesome. Alas, they have a lifetime warranty and within a week, they fixed me up and i havent had issues since. It sounded like a common problem for the early releases that has now been addressed.
