    New question here. Formula RX or THE ONE MY10 ?

    Iím trying to understand the deference between the Formula RX and THE ONE MY10 in terms of usability.

    I see the system weight deference between the two but nothing moreÖ

    What is making the system less suitable for DH or better for EN usage or better for FR and lees for DH?

    the one has more braking power thanks to larger pistons.

    Would it be a mistake to use THE ONE for AM?

    "The One MY10" would work great on an AM rig.

    The Ones MY10 have far more power than the K24s they replaced on my Ibis. I now use my brakes very differently in that with the MY10s I now either squeeze the lever or not, rather than dragging the brakes, which I did with the K24s. If I did that with the MY10s I would stop! Also hairing into corners and then a one finger squeeze rather than grabbing loads of brake to slow down is great fun and far more controlled )

    So...how do they ride?

    What did you have on there before?

    What are the differences?

    I'm looking at going from Juicy 7's (they're getting a bit vintage) to some Formulas.

    Thanks!

    I am very pleased with my RX's. I would compare the lever feel to shimano's, but without the fade of mineral oil. Very good modulation, and the shape of the levers allow easy 1 finger feathering on tricky descents. Stopping power is pretty amazing- especially with a 180 rotor up front. Great brakes!

    The ones are amazing, they have a very large hydraulic ratio, so you have to be a bit more precise when setting them up, but when you do SO MUCH POWER. Controllable power with good lever feedback.
    Why would I care about 150g of bike weight, I just ate 400g of cookies while reading this?

    Well....

    They are much stronger then my good old Maguras (BAT2008).
    The Modulation cannot be controlled yet, an upgrade kit should be avail soon as far as I know.
    One thing I did not like about them is the pads that came with set, they are loud...!
    Maybe the semi metalic or the organic will be better.


    Bottom line, they are very strong and accurate but I would like to have a controll of the modulation.
    I will update as soon as I get the upgrade kit.


    Good trails.
