These came stock on my Cannondale Scalpel. They get the job done for sure. Had some initial bleed issues with the lever feel softening up a couple times in the first couple months of use. After 3rd bleeding it seems to be holding lever feel. Overall I like the consistent feel of the lever swing. I haven't had any brake squealing as some other folks claim is common with these brakes/rotors.

I recently upgraded from stock mechanical discs. The control and feel of the elixir 5 is amazing. I would recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade from mech. disc or rim brakes. You will be blown away.

I have been riding these things hard for a few months. They take a minute or so to break-in in the beginning of each ride, After that they are pretty reliable brakes if you keep them dry, they sound like a blow horn after any creek or river crossings . Also if your on any 15 or 20 minute downhills they start to fade near the bottom. They have good modulation but a little too much for me, I like something a little more touchy and sensative like the Shimano XT. These came on my bike so later i'll upgrade to shimanos
