    Elixir's get very good reviews, and if you're worried about weight, spend a little more to get the carbon ones: http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Mode ... elID=29726

    I got the tech x2's, but if you are into DH you may need to go for the tech m4's, i find the x2's for my 10 stone weight plenty enough power and a great modulating brake, using a 180 rotor up front and a 160 at rear, i would have had 180 up rear but my 2001 cove hardtail will only accept a 160 max at rear.

    The bleeding process is much easier with hope as opposed to avid's, the hopes are bled in the same way as a cars brakes with no special bleed kit required, avid require a bleed kit.
