Not sure if they're the coolest, but I really like my Altek Magura levers, nicely machined and solid feeling! The M900 and Tommaselli are pretty cool too!

I've got a set of the avid ultimates; how they shaved them to weight only 130g amazes me, as they feel so solid.

I think (I never got a weight photo) that my Kooka hydro levers were only around 140g too.

Big fan of the tech lites

These red ones are 2g lighter at 104g. Probably need calibrating!

I was a big fan too... then I tried to use them :lol:

Yours are the later ones with multiple pivot points, so that weight may well be accurate.

Yep. Sloppy fit and finish too. The later ones look like they may have been much better finished than mine. To be fair, they were paired with some very lightweight cantis too, which may also have been part of the problem.
