Took my new hyper brake board out for a spin to get a quick impression of the brakes.
First thoughts are that they are excellent. Fantastic stopping power on eights on tarmac and although much heavier than hydraulic pad set-ups they make up for it in knowing you will most definitely stop.
I wasn’t sure cable discs brakes were a good idea as they can be notoriously difficult to balance, but these were perfect, stopping in a straight line without any pull.
I don’t know if they’ll be as robust as hydraulic disc brakes and with six inch discs you wouldn’t want them on anything too rough, but they are definitely worth having.
