    Going to sell elixir to try something else, suggestions?

    I had formula rx on my last bike and really liked them, what else should I check out that would be similar to the rx in modulation/feel and power?
    Marta sl's? Nothing too expensive.
    Hardrock 29er, Niner EMD9, Cannondale F29, Camber Expert, 650b Nickel all gone.

    Hope Tech X2? Well worth it IMO. However, not sure what "not too expensive" means to you....

    Went from 2012 Elixir 5's to 2012 Shimano XT's and couldn't be happier.

    I'd second the XT but if you are coming from RX XT modulation would be a bit funkier and less linear. I like magura louise the new bleed port is just awesome.

    I think $150 a wheel is fair, I'd like to keep it under that for new stuff. My last set of RX's only cost me $165 for some new take-offs from a member no here.
    The XT stuff is looking nice, 2 guys I rode with recently liked them but nobody commented on the modulation.
    The Elixirs are all about power with little modulation, like an on/off switch, how are the XT's different from that and the RX's I had before? Does the brake power ramp up quick when they get heat in them?

    +1 for Magura, I bought a second pair when I saw a deal on them.
