    Formula Oro k24 vs Code 5

    My title...

    Or am i comparing apples to oranges here? a DH brake vs an AM brake.....
    Weights not too much of a concern when it comes to brakes....but if its monumental ill consider rethinking.
    Lean back, Hit both brakes, And ask yourself, Do you feel lucky today?

    YOu kind of are not comparing the same type, but the Formulas should serve you nicely unless you are a clyde. I have k18 and they are great with 200/160 set up
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    yeah there is a huge difference there. the codes are for ultimate power and the K24 are more after modulation. i have both, the k24s are on my xc bike with 160mm rotors and the codes, not the 5 version, on my knolly DT ( its an all mountain that is quite fr friendly). honestly i'm really considering selling the codes for another set on k24's, the codes just overwhelm tires too easily. i had these brakes on my dh bike without this problem because i had heavy wheels and 2.5 full sticky tires.

    also btw i'm a clyde (260) and have very good brake control to be honest.
