Rated 4 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Terrible. Good for urban use but not on the trails. As usual came factory bled,and as usual factory bleed was rubbish. Had to shorten rear hose and then bleed the rear 3 times to get it working correctly and also bleed the front. Do not use on the trails as they fade badly when they get hot so dont forget the anchor tied to some rope to stop you. As mentioned these are great for urban use and thats about it. Not a good trail brake,modulation is ok but fade off to quickly for my licking,couple of fast runs and they are gone,take plenty of water to keep em cool. 05 April 2014

Answer: 
'Direct' simply refers to the fact that the brakes are not supplied with any mount adaptors as standard, and are direct Post mount calipers.
To mount to an IS fork and frame for 180mm and 160mm, you can use the +20mm IS adaptors below (sku387168).

Answer: 
The front comes with 180mm post mount adapter so you will need an 180mm IS adapter for the front.
The rear has a 160mm direct mount adapter included which bolts directly to your frame so you will need an 160mm IS adapter for the rear.
The brakes do not come with rotors.
