I bought one for my Giant Glory DH (gold)and one for my specialized p1 Dirt jumper(purple) . Out of the box they looked pretty amazing lovely deep anodizing. Ive run them for a few months now and they've been spot on , it was fit and forget for me with no problems, and bearings are readily available which is another plus!
There's no question these are excellent value for money. I bought a 4 pack for my XTs and Hope Mini Pros. However I was a little disappointed with the performance. They definately don't have the 'bite' that OE pads have. Would I buy more.....probably. The cost outweighs the poorer performance.
only used these for downhill, was using dmr's but thought id give these a try. im impressed. great price, big platform, great sit in feel rather than sat on. would probably go for mag lites for xc tho.
Perfect grips to those of which have spades instead of normal sized hands. Nice and chunky, really grippy in both the wet and dry, and a little longer than normal grips so perfect for big hands. I didnt have to move my brakes either so it was just a strait replacement. Highly recommended, will be ordering some soon for my DJ bike i'm building up
My review is for the Formula R1 / The One pads.
Not powerful at all when compared to my stock Formula R1 pads (organic), this is true for both dry and wet conditions. You really have to brake hard with 2 fingers to stop when going fast.
Plus they squeal like crazy when braking hard, something I never experienced with my organic pads. The only positive aspect is the very long life of the pad
