Mono6ti's VS. Gustavs
Got a big dilema....which brakes to get. Going to be used for very often DHing, racing, and freeriding. Its between these brakes.....and I can get the for around the same price...maybe the Hopes a bit cheaper. I have heard good and bad things about the Hopes, and have heard good things about the Gustavs. I love the way the Hopes look, but they use the DOT fluid as where the Gustavs use the mineral oil. Any ideas as to which one to pick...im stuck.
Can't comment on the Hope's...
... performance as I've never owned a set, but I certainly think they sure look nice.
I've been using Gustavs for my fifth season now, and have absolutely no reason to try anything different. They work: I never need to do anything to them and they stop - the way all brakes should: great modulation, fantastic power, and a control that you never need more than a single index finger to harness.
Add on the fantastic Magura Service, the 5 year leak proof warranty and the "mtbr Magura cult" and I think you can't go wrong.
