Hayes Mag Hydro Disc 6 Brake System

DESCRIPTION

The Hayes hydraulic disc brake utilizes a patented open hydraulic system unlike most other disc brakes that use a closed system. The open system allows the expanding brake fluid to go into a reservoir to eliminate "free running drag".

Strength:

Powerful
smooth
reliable

Weakness:

Some "zing-zing" which I can hardly eliminate, maybe have to burn in the system a little bit more

Maybe too early to evaluate properly, but this morning under a heavy, heavy rain and down a steep descent I really enjoyed the reliability and power.

Strength:

Beautiful feel. Its like having the brakes plugged into your brain. Just need to think about stopping and the bike begins to slow. Over the bars stopping when you clamp down, great release, and drag free running.

Weakness:

None yet - aparently howl when wet, but I havent seen that.

Feel, feel, feel.
Thats what I love about 'em. Groovy in the gravel and sweet on the single trail.
Super easy fitting, and did I mention feel?
Wicked.

I can see why the downhillers love them.

(PS - awesome site. A bible when it comes to checking out MTB gear)
