Looks like a new thing for 2021 and these guys are the first to have it?

Seems sensible since so many people prefer the HC1 lever.

Could be the thing for 2021 - anyway these days if you want them its more a question of availability, so you just get it wherever you can and buy additional HC levers.

You could try the new Deore levers, I believe they don't have servo-wave. Probably the most cost-effective option.

Is Servo wave the cause for wandering bite point on steep descents?

I think it so and maybe levers that weren't bled with the lever adjusted all the way out.

Well I ended up with MT Trail Sports, figure I could stand to skid less on trails lol. Probably going to swap metallic pads in for a bit more performance out of them.
