New Bling.....formula Ro Brakes

Postby dirtydawg on Mon 25/Feb/13 2:34pm

Got some new Formula RO brakes today.....and boy am I excited! A supposed 18% more powerful than my The Ones and only a tad heavier.

With a new oval piston they are meant to perform with the same ferocity as 4 piston brakes with superior modulation.

I'll be using these on my lapierre froggy on trails around riverhead, Rotorua and wood hill. I am 95kg....so really appreciate the extra braking power in some conditions.

Just thought I'd share.....

Would be super keen if these ran on mineral oil and not DOT fluid...

I found mine had about the same power as my SLX, so took them off the Remedy and went back to the Shimano. Have since had them bled (even though they were brand new) and serviced by Jono @ Wideopen, so will fit them again and see how they go. Also had the levers tweaked, as I don't like how far the reach is on them from factory. Big ups for the backup service from Jono.
