    Any impressions of the 05 Formula Oro?

    It's supposed to be a complete redesign. Any word on weights, design, performance?

    well I have a pair here, and what i can say they are pretty awesome.

    Greg Minaar on his Honda DH Team thinks the same way as he is using them too.
    German MTB Magazin has tested a whole bunch of brakes and the ORO were overall winners.

    weight is 380 isch depending on rotor size.... its a open system with closed pressure diaphram similar to Hayes . It has a piston travel adjust to move the pressure point back and forth. Formula calls it Feeling control

    Price should be up there with the top other brakes from Hayes, Avid, Shimano, etc
