    Formula RX or Oro K24s

    I know the RX is the replacement for the Oro, any opinions one way or the other for either brakes?

    All things being equal I'd go with the newer (RX).
    I love the RX's I put on my bike recently, they are great brakes.
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.

    I have some Oro K24s.....I have yet to be impressed with them. My old Hayes 9s were much better.

    Never used k24's but i just recently put a set of RX's on my Nomad and have been very impressed (especially only having 7" f / 6"r rotors) Seem to have great modulation.

    I've had my K24's for about a year and half. Love them! Work great with the Ashima AR-08 rotors.

    One is good!

    I should add add a follow-up post that after a good bleed and new pads in the back.....my K24s are working the best they have since I got them a year ago......that is, front and back at the same time. My only issue now is a squealing rear brake when I initially feather it, the second feather is quite. I'm going to post about this......hopefully someone has a solution.

    I have both types of brakes, and am super impressed with my RX's. Still love the K24's though, but the RX's are a bit better...
