    Real world difference? Magura MT6/Avid X0/Formula T1

    On a normal fun ride, not racing, what's the "feel/experience" difference between these different types of brakes?

    Fairly subjective Tyler but all work real well and stop the bike no doubt.

    From my experience with testing and riding others product, The Italian formulas are super strong with lots of power but less modulation or "feel" and the Avids although beautiful are similar in lacking some feel.
    The MT's however have loads of modulation and feel but lack a little of the outright power of the Formulas.
    Pros and cons really and other factors can weight the decision, price, warranty, customer service and support, durability etc.

    Thanks for the consideration.
