These articles showed a clear editorial stance, gave thoughtful opinions, and took maximum advantage of the product-testing powers available to each publication. They even highlighted downsides of certain products. I respectfully part ways with Levy on the topic of brake power vs. modulation, but that might have something to do with the extra 40 pounds I have on him and the fact that my home trails are better.

This is exactly the sort of tech writing we want in the MTB world. They might be shoot-outs, but they’re a long way from MBA.

  1. TRP – tested by Mike Levy
    Trickstuff – tested by Paul Aston
    Magura – tested by Richard Cunningham
    Code – tested by Mike Kazimer
    Saint – tested by Mike Levy

    In what way makes this the tests comparable? 4 guys spread all over the world test 5 brakes and then try to rate and compare them against each other?
