I moved away from Shimano hoping SRAM had done homework right finally on their brakes. Guess not! its been 9 months since I had the Ultimates and although they feel powerful and have amazing modulation, I am noticing that the brake lavers are not returning to original position due to that loose power and zero modulation causing loss of braking control. This issue seemed a lot worst on hotter days. Today I found out there are many people out there with identical issues ( at jenson usa check reviews under Item #: BR197C00 ) .

Comfortable but worn out after 3 months
1 5

These knee pads are relatively comfortable to pedal in and they provide a fair amount of protection, however I like to rate products based on how good the company backs their product. I have had the these knee pads just about 3 months and probably wore them less than 5 times and already there is tear in the material (see pic below). G-form won't respond to email or phone calls. For my next pair which seems to be in a very near future I will be investing in either the 661 Recon Knee guards which are quiet a bit easier to pedal in since they have an opening behind the knee and they provide better knee protection or the leatt.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had the KS lev 30.9 with 125mm travel for just over one year now. Previously, I owned command post, Gravity dropper and rockshox reverb and kronolog. I will start by saying LEV does have a very smooth feel when it works and probably is the lightest of the hydrolic group. The remote lever was easy to set up and was easy to activate and rock solid. I did however end up sending the unit back to KS for warranty work after two months of use. Now, the post will raise when pulled on the seat. Another major issue is then seat clamp. The spherical bolts and nuts that hold the seat clamp will come loose even when torqued above specs resulting in lost bolts. They have no resolution on this and bolts are backordered with no eta. KS has horrible customer service. They have no representatives to even answer phones. Only voicemail and no one will respond. Parts are almost impossible to find and after calling two LBS I came to learn they are the hardest to deal with. I understand almost all droppers have some issue but best to Stick with a reputable company like rockshox or gravity dropper or Crank Brothers.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Had this dropper for just over 1 year. Strengths; Connection at the seat post is stationary, smooth and stealth lever only when operational. Weakness: Greatest weakness is the customer service of the KS. No one answers phone calls nor they care about customers. Seals have already failed twice in one year. Seat clamp squeaks and at one point unique spherical bolt and nut fell out while on a ride. After numerous attempts to contact KS, found out about this major seat clamp issue. Apparently KS is aware of the situation but has no solution. Simple bolts and nuts are backordered and they don't even know when it will become available. So, if you are willing to change your seals yourself or come up with your own DIY seat clamp assembly then go for KS.
