Rated 5 out of 5 by great product braking performance was improved! very responsive when paired with speed dial levers and jagwire cables 16 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Slick product Just bought this front set to compliment the rears I have had for a while and they are amazing. I run shimano ceramic pads on these and I don't get the annoying howl I used to get with the xt's. they have great stopping power. 24 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by best v brake you can get without paying silly money easy to adjust for a v brake stopping power is excellent I have them set up with avid single digit 7 leavers easy to get off compared to a full length rubber cable cover 17 September 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличные тормоза Отличные недорогие тормоза. Хорошая жесткость, хорошие колодки. Прошли много гонок и зимних поездок. На голову лучше своего младшего собрата SD5 16 September 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Bought this item last winter, tested it this summer. It's awful my friends. All my life ridden road bikes, and consequently road brakes make me cry now when I'm trying to set this brake up to function well. Alright, what is the problem? There are two major once. First of all, the equilibration of the pressure of the cantilevers is mind blowing, especially if you are changing wheels from time to time. The second thing is that these braking pads are designed maybe for a 500km, maybe little more. Onestly, dissapointed with cantilever brakes. Cheers. 06 September 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great brakes For third world conditions (no spares available for discs) I prefer 'V' brakes/ rim brakes (which are actually giant disc brakes). These stop better than the plain Shimano, Shimano XT and Tektro brakes. The cross section/ shape of the brake arm migh have something to do with this. The return springs are beefy and work well. A neat feature is that there is no need to 'undo' the rubber boot from the noodle when unhooking the brake. This is particularly useful when removing the wheel to deal with a flat in muddy conditions. I like the way the inner cable attaches to the brake. Doesn't pinch like the usual (too) small washer and bolt set up. 27 June 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great V-Brakes Great Performance Got these V-brakes on my old Lavadome with Avid levers. First run was during the Euro Single Speed Championships in France and I was amazed by this brake combination. Perfect smooth yet powerful braking. Very impressed! 03 May 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by These brakes are incredibly good and are the next best thing to hydrolic disc systems. I would always choose V-brakes over mechanical disc simply because they are so much easier to adjust, barely require any maintenance, and cheaper. The digit 7s in particular are very quick and easy to adjust for any buckle or out-of-line wheel placement. I use my digit 7s with Avid AD3 levers and they work very nicely together. They are very responsive and allow for easy one finger breaking. Although they are described as 'graphite' in colour, it is more like a metallic black with silver sediment. They come with avid logo noodles and with the blocks already attached so those who are not competent in bike mechanics need not to worry. All you require is brake cables and housing. A final good thing about these brakes is the positioning of the pinch bolt to clamp the wire in place. It is at an angle which allows easy access for amending the tensions of the cable if required. All in all an excellent set of brakes and would always choose these over any mechanical disc setup. 25 February 2012

The Digit 7's are approx 30grams lighter and have a lower profile; performance however is very similar.
