    Magura Louise or Elixir R?

    So I currently have Elixir R's on my trailbike. They are good. Good modulation and power. Silent except when wet. My only complaint is that I had to replace lever internals twice.

    I just bought some Magura Louise (non BAT) off Chainlove for $75 each for my single speed, but Im toying with the idea of putting the maguras on my LTc and moving the Elixers to the SS.

    The question is which brake would be better on my AM/trail bike?

    I had the Louises BAT on my bike, changed them to Elixir Rs, and probably going to put the Louises back on.

    Powerwise, both are similar. Modulation? I prefer Louises. Bleeding, I have no idea, I'm not a mech . Noise? Louises are silent, and smooooth.

    Louise all the way. I have two sets now...one went strong for 4 years, only needing a bleed after 2.
