Rated 4 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Spectacular performance n value Came stock on bike, was looking at a change initially. Went for a few ride noise lvl 7, Google n did a reset on the calipers within 5mins and everything gets better after every ride. Few rides of light trail average 20km and now the brakes stays on. Can't believe an entry lvl formula would b so gd! (Shimano brake user) . 18 April 2014
