 use to have hayse disk brakes and they make noises all the time!! i cannot stand any noises while riding. These came on my new gt marathon carbon expert and have been quiet all the time. I cannot say enough about that. I have even taken my XC bike downhilling hardcore and they once again held up perfect (even though my hands hurt from braking so much). as for cons...I have none

 I had shitty Avid Juicy 3, which was very noisy and had no power at all. Then i bought SLX, and i love it. It's powerful, quiet (even when wet), looks awesome and has great modulation. Lever feels nice and tool free reach adjustment is awesome. Great price and quality. I can highly recommend it.

 In my opinion one of the best brakes on the market. Unlike the Hope brakes, the Shimano series have a strong and responsive feel. I dont like Hopes due to the fact of they lock out too quickly; not giving you that much feel to have control of the braking system. Other people think different about hopes but i will allways go with shimano. The SLX has a simple adjuster for the lever so the rider does not have to adapt to the brake. The brake adapts to them. Sleek and stealthy looking brake to give your bike a mean affect. Only having to bleed this brake once every year is very convinient, the price was convinient too! I only paid £100 for mine with a rotor so it wasnt too expensive.

 These are a truly astounding set of brakes for budget conscious rider based on there big bros in the xtr range there stopping power is excellent with very little fade the rotors leave a little to be desired but upgrade the to xt's and 203mm make them brilliant however the construction feels a little plastic and unrefined but this is the budget end all in all if you can live with this they are truly awesome

 I love mine. The adjustment is great and doesn't involve messing about with stupid allen keys. They look damn nice, come with plenty of cable for you dirt jumpers. I paid £65 which doesn't exactly brake the bank. My only complaint is the lever clamp design; I'm just lazy though and can't be bothered to take my grips on and off. In comparison to other good brakes like Magura louise and hopes they're not as powerful but still a great bargain tup

 Strong and reliable, although the reservoir body extends further than many other, i have crashed many times on it and it hasn't broken. I was impressed as i have cracked avid leavers previously and they stick out far less. Great adjustment too.

 No joke Saints for the lighter rider! Have them on my Intense DH bike don't forget £70 Cheaper than Sants. Great modualation and power! don't listen to the hype of Saints, good they may be but this is an excellent brake for people on a budget or don't need too much power! BUY THESE!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Really good modulation, enough braking power for anybody with even a 160mm rotor. It does make a howling noise when I apply hard braking pressure on the rear brake. This could probably be solved with a different rotor.

 Switched to these after using Avid juicys/Elixirs for a couple of years. Excellent braking power, easy to bleed/ set up, good pad life, faultless performance so far

 My m8 haz these and they r way better than my Avid Juicy 3
Brilliant modulation and masses of single finger stopping power, perfect for a first hydrolic, or for an expert

 Awesome brakes, pads wear out a little fast but these are fantastic. Chainreactioncycles.com has them in the $70.00 range, that's where I bought mine.

 Light, and powerful enough to stop a 200 pound dirt jumper! Looks good, and very affordable. Lever does seem to flex slightly sometimes.

 The best brakeset I've owned.

Awesome power and reliable. Wouldn't use for DH racing but anything else should be ok.
