M4's are awesome brakes. Stopped my 16+ stone no problem at all. You can throw as much heat into them as you can and they will keep on performing 100%.

I have tech x2's also ,running 185F/165R.Havent really had to slam them on the save me bacon but i feel the power is there if i do need it.
Still prefer C2's :D


Good choice with the m4's.Better to have too much power than too little

I run m4 my partner has x2 on hers, run i find the x2's are good but the m4 are just that bit better :wink: . If they have the tech levers though you're best off getting the matchmaker so you can bolt your shifters to them!

+1 for matchmakers and tbh i dont think you can easily use them without :? i had a job of a time reaching my shifters just on normal clamps till i got the matchmakers fitted 8) Problem is the tech lever is just so fat and chunky.

When buying matchmakers :wink: -put the spare clamps somewhere safe
