What Brakes?

edited December 2009 in MTB buying advice
I've got a bit of free money floating around and have decided to upgrade the brakes on my Nicolai Helius. I currently run Hayes Stroker Rydes with 180mm up front and 160mm out back.

I find them a bit on or off to be honest and they're lookign a little on the tatty side too.
I've got a budget of around £175 and would like to stick with the same sized rotors.

Any ideas & experiences :?:

    I'd suggest having a look at Formula brakes. I have the R1's (lightweight XC brake) and a set of older K24's and both are excellent.

    these are a bit over budget, but looks like a good deal

    had the older ones, worked well, reliable.

    would also look at the formula brakes aswell
