    Promax Hydraulic Brakes

    I have had a GF Cobia with Promax brakes for about 2 years now and have not been having any problems. I was just wondering if other riders who have the same brakes are satisfied with them?

    Obviously I only ride my bike so I would not know if I am missing a really good brake like Avid or another manufacturer. The brakes do seem to work fine for my non aggressive type of riding.

    The brake forum would probably have more answers.

    I had a front Promax brake on a bike, it worked but I think there's better options out there. I switched to a Magura Julie for about the same price and it was better.

    Had them on my Cobia for about 2 months. After 5 trips to the LBS Trek warrantied them and gave me Juicy 1's. Much better/more reliable. Promax was the worst brake I have ever used.
