    HS 33 HS11 differences?

    What are the differences between HS11's and HS33's? Which would be better for general XC riding? I have an option to use either.

    HS11 is Magura's budget rim brake with composite lever body. The HS33 is the top of the line with TPA (Turbo Pad Adjusters) for on-the-fly pad adjustment. Both systems use the same slave cylinders; it's just the lever assemblies that are much different.

    Magura rim brakes have been re-worked for 2005 with a new Evolution Adaptor (slave mounting braket) system and booster assembly. They're almost plug & play now from the fiddly setup of pre-2005 systems.

    If you can afford it, go with the 2005 HS33s. They will be great brakes.
