Strengths:    Powerful

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
I bought these for a project bike to save money. I was attracted to the Swissstop pads used at the Apex level. I was originally thinking of going with Rival or Force but if you consider the design is nearly identical; then there is no reason to go with those. The only difference I could see was about 30 grams of weight, and when it comes to brakes there is not much in the way of technology. If you are one of those people that gives a crap about keeping up with what the person next to you is using-they are not for you. In short, they are brakes. They work well for the price and I am happy. Well worth the money and really all that matters with a brake system is mostly in the design and having good pads. These have both.
