 WOW! I sold my Avid BB7s for these, and let us say that I do not regret that in any way! These brakes are AMAZING! They are as light as they get and have incredible braking power. I was going down a hill at 60km/h, and these brakes stopped me amazingly fast (and I also weigh 200lbs.) For $700, I expect perfection, and these brakes do not disappoint. If you have the money buy these; however, if you have a limited budget, buy other upgrades for your bike as these brakes are really frivolous.

 I haven't found a con with this item yet. They came stock on my Specialized Stumpy and I am loving them thus far. Great stopping power, I like the feel of the stock levers and they look great.

 Great feel, just installed these on my enduro and they rock. It is a bit of an investment though with the cost being as high as it is. Got mine off of the buy/sell forum.

 These are the best Hydraulic disc brakes in the world. They are also good for dirt jumping because they come with long cables. (optional)

 I personally think these are the best brakes. They have a carbon fibre lever blade and they look good. 5 *****

Avid Juicy Ultimate (MSRP $365) — The Juicy Ultimate is the epitome of sleek, exotic and feather-light design. Its magnesium lever body and 6k thermoset carbon fiber lever blade reduce steering weight, and just simply feel fast. The Monoblok™ caliper makes the system stiff, responsive and clean. And because the Ultimate incorporates all of Avid’s proprietary technologies, like Power Reserve Geometry™ and Pad Contact-Point Adjustment, you can be sure that your brakes will never limit your performance. That’s why it’s a favorite of the cross country pros around the world ... a hands-down essential for the discriminating XC brake-o-philes.
