Rated 2 out of 5 by CheeBurger pretty decent brakes, until you try shimano brakes
these came on my zesty as well. i thought they had power, modulation and looked great too. until i tried a bike with shimano deore brakes and realised how little power these brakes have. they also cost so much more than slx or xt brakes, it's a bit ridiculous. before upgrading to shimano brakes, i replaced the 185mm rotor with a 203mm hoping to get more power. it didn't really help, i still had to pull quite hard on the levers to get any sort of power.
upgraded to shimano slx and the difference is day and night. my advice is to go with shimano brakes for a lower cost and much much higher performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mastiffmat Hugely powerful with lots of feel
I have these fitted as standard on my Zesty and love them. Single fingered braking with lots of feel (not just on/off) and hug power. They look very bling (mine are yellow instead of the red shown here) and have lasted well despite abuse and lack of cleaning. The discs that came with them have corroded badly though.
