Top quality brakes. Would recommend for trail/xc duties not powerful enough for DH/AM/Enduro. M4's would be better suited for the faster/harder type of riding.
They stop you quickly! There is sometimes a little brake judder and they do occasionally squeal but this may be partly due to slight flex in my forks.
These brakes work very well and look good doing so. I really like the multiple adjustment options so that you can tweak the levers to exactly how you want them. One star taken off because the floating rotors do not fit some combinations of hub and fork. There is no mention of that on Hope's site or any of the seller's sites. I did find it on blogs after the fact, but it was already too late. The combination that I am using is a Fox Float 36 and Chris King front hub. This combination resulted in the inner spider rubbing on the fork post. I chose the option of machining off some of the fork post instead of buying a non-floating rotors.
Nice outlook, strong braking power, reasonable pricing!!!
My order arrived really quickly - much faster than expected, but no different to the service I received when buying some wheels from Merlin a year or so ago. Nice to know that this was not a one off! I will definitely be ordering from Merlin again.
As for the brakes, well I fitted them next day and after a couple of weekends riding I'm very happy with the purchase. The M4s are quite a step up from the Juicy 3s they replaced, but I have much more confidence on downhill sections as these are actually capable of stopping the bike with my hefty frame on top of it. Recommended!
Awesome quality brakes.
These were the M4 with braided hose. Love Hope brakes, always have done. Set up properly and bedded in, these are great brakes. The lever is smooth and comfortable and the control is second to none. The best thing is, Hope fully support their products with spares and advice. I've had Hope brakes over 12 years old and still working well when I've sold them on.
Bought these to replace my ageing but still functional mono minis. Power and feel is up as to be expected levers are far better and have a more solid feel to them than the old minis. The adjustment is also a nice feature. Merlin were super quick as usual and the price was the best I could find with the Christmas discounts..... What's not to like... 5 stars... cheers Merlin.
The best quality by hope and delivered promptly by yourselves, I would recommend merlin to all
