I had Saints and recently got the new XT 4 pistons. Why do they feel like less power than the Saints? Anyone else feel a difference? I assumed they would be the same. I don’t want to have to buy some Saint brakes again, but I will!

magura has the most power, I know it wasn't one of your 2 listed, but I would link into it.. they look freaking gorgeous, and are not that bad of a price. Some go up very high though, so just watch what you are looking at, but they have 2, and 4 por brakes, I've heard the 4 pots are insanely strong.

Have you tried changing the pads on your new XT's? I believe the new XT's ship with resin pads. Changing to the sintered/semi-metallic pads will give you more power. Saints ship with the sintered pads...
