And the wet & mud disc are good. But in the dry they are ott. But then I'm not a head case down hill nutter. like many on this site that I've watched on meets. Next year the sales man will think of anther product you can't ride with out. Don't forget cycling fitness is more important that the bike. it all about the rider
The XTR V's on my retro bike are perfectly capable of throwing me over the bars / locking up the rear at any speed I wish in the dry, just like the Hope discs on my modern bike can do, but when it comes to things like feel and modulation the hydraulic disks are literally from a different century.
I don't buy any of the latest spiel such as tapered steerers, 35mm bar clamps and 27.5" wheels etc being noticeably better than what went before, but disc brakes have been a huge upgrade over rim brakes and probably the biggest improvement to MTB's of yore after suspension. If you don't believe me then maybe you should try them.
