Xt's weren't up to stopping my 120 kegs but I ride steep stuff fairly quickly.

Zee's and the biggest surprise for power and modulation is those X0 trails. Don't like the carbon levers but.

Had X0 trails. Awesome at first, but went super noisy and wouldn't shut up even with new pads, bleeds etc etc etc

Replaced with M820 Saints - would never go back.
