Formula Cura Brakes - Review
@Rubberelli: Why on earth would they work any differently? You tell me... You just keep saying that are demonstratively untrue. Using non Hope cheap rotors isn't the same as the difference between using Pirellis and budget tyres on any car. Being savvy about where you spend and where you save is at the heart of what i'm saying. If you're going to try and say clever things to make a point at least make them clever...

@m1dg3t: Guides were an example and you know it. I don't work for Hope and i suspect you know that too. Hopes were also an example, Saints are the same price, i know you just won't get it. "I don't do eBay" said no intelligent person ever. Feel free to continually make bad choices it makes no difference to me.

@m1dg3t: Now i'm even more confused??? Firstly everything under the link is either irrelevant or just incorrect, and the link itself takes you to page that simply proves what i just said??? There is so little relative price difference between very average brakes in the £100 - £120 bracket, and the very best at around £150 - £170. They even have a special offer on that page for a set of Hope V4's with a fancy Hope rotor for £200 which is only £25 more than buying a V4 and a cheap Shimano RT-75 as i suggested. If you are in the market for brakes, and you have £240 to spend on some Sram Guide RS brakes for example, why the fuck wouldn't you just wait another month and save up the extra £60 for the Hopes? You could even just use your current rotors. Ooh and here look i can post links too: https://winstanleysbikes.co.uk/hope-tech-3-v4-front-disc-brake-with-braided-hose?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1onVz8fu2gIV7bXtCh0smACHEAQYByABEgIFlvD_BwE#black-left-hand A Hope V4 for £152, just £30 more than a bullshit Guide RS from your link. That's $529 CAD for a set of Hope V4's vs $418 for the Guides, where'd you get $700 from? And I never mentioned credit, I said save up. Do you get my point yet? If you already have some money saved up or available to buy some brakes, only impatience is standing between the Guides and the $110 extra you'd need for the Hopes, not to mention the fact that reliability, longevity and serviceability is paramount to us poor people. And then there's eBay. Ffs.

@Rubberelli: Wildly incorrect post. Hope Tech 3 V4 = £150 Shimano Saint M820 = £150 Magura MT8 = £170 Formula RO = £1,000,000 Sram Code RSC = £175 etc etc etc And why on earth do you seem to think you have to use Hope rotors with Hope brakes? I use V4's with Shimano RT-76 rotors, and guess what, they work fine because they're just round steel things, and they cost around £25 each. Did you and everyone that propped you just not realize any of this? Or do you have a problem with Hope in general or something? Do you just not know the real price of things so just make numbers up? Did you have nothing else to say? What is it? I'm just trying to figure it out... Yes the Cura is more budget friendly at around £100. But here's my problem. I'd hazard a guess that you, like 99% of all PB users are a keen mountain biker, but are you riding around on a 1995 GT Zaskar with V-Brakes because you still can't afford to upgrade? I'll go out on a limb here and say no, no you're not. Mostly everyone here has a very nice bike, as well as an expensive helmet, all the gear, a Camelback etc... The list goes on... And i simply cannot accept that anyone agreeing with your comment really couldn't save up £100 more to have the best brakes out there, or any of the ones in the list above over the Cura. Maybe i'm naive and there are thousands of Pinkbike users kids all around the world going hungry everyday because daddy needs new brake pads this month so he can't afford to buy any gruel. Or, maybe the Cura really is hands down better than all those mentioned so it's simply not worth spending the extra, but i very much doubt it. I understand brakes like this for OEM use, but why anyone would buy them aftermarket is a bit of a mystery. I'm very far from being rich, i have only one bike, but why when even just putting rubber on your wheels costs £100, would you scrimp out on the only thing more important to your safety than a helmet?

Worth saying, V4's are still the best in my opinion. If other companies can't even match them i wonder why they bother.
