Fantastic package, brilliant brakeset
I was skeptical as previously I have suffered with many issues with Shimano brakes. However in the weeks I have used these they have been mighty impressive. Set up out of the box was simple and the brakeset are beautifully made. Mantel service was again spot on

Another great shimano product.
Works really well, a big improvement on the standard 2pots, look nice too. Amazing service, delivery and price from Mantel too. Thanks Mantel.
Great value for money.
Replacement pads are expensive.
Coming from Formula R1's I wasn't sure how powerful these would feel however I was not disappointed, power is great and modulation is not an issue, bleeding was easy and the mineral oil is nice to work with. Adjustment is awesome and the extra contact point makes them feel solid under heavy braking. Only downside for me was getting my gear shifter and dropper post lever where I wanted them due to brake lever clamp and extra contact point but you soon adjust. (Top Tip: buy the right tools to cut the hose and insert barb it makes a big difference)
Lever postioning takes some work
