    Hayes Prime?

    What's the word? Anyone seen them, or have anytime on them? I know they have officially yet to be released, just curious if anyone has any info.

    I know they are claimed to have a 20% power increase over the Aces...I would be curious to see if this is true.

    Please keep us posted. Looking for something to replace my Hope M4s which I love, but can't stand the noise.

    Per my inside out Hayes, the Primes are on the way to dealers, and I will have mine just after Interbike.

    Are the Primes ever going to be released? I'm in the process of building up a Banshee Rune and am in need of a new brake set. I have been looking at the Ace but would really like to try the prime out. I know as soon as I order the Ace the Prime will come out. Any word on the release date?

    The downside of these forums getting INFO out to the world so quickly is that it always seems like you wait forever for new products to become avalible

    Any word on these brakes yet? Are they supposed to be better than the four pot Aces, or are they going to be a step below them? I'm dying to replace my Avids.

    Release date shows 12-30-10 now. It's really up in the air when they will be out. For me they will be an All Mtn brake replacing my current Stroker Trail's. This will be the last Hayes brakes I buy if the stopping power is not considerably better then the Trails. Really hoping for a major improvement.
