    Do most high level enduro racers use 4-pot brakes?

    Do most high level (pro/elite) enduro racers run 4-pot brakes front/rear or maybe 4-pot front/2-pot rear? What’s the most common setup?

    Pretty sure most of the top guys are running 4 piston brakes with 200mm rotors.

    Sam HillCode calipers, 200mm rotors, Martin MaesXTR, Richie Rude Saints, Wyn Masters, Saints. Maxime Chapuis, Magura MT7s, Dan Wolfe, Codes. Isabeau Courdurier, Codes. All of the bikes I saw were 4x4 200 or 203 front and rear.

    what was said already, with some very rare exceptions for 180mm rotors only, I remember reading a bike check comparison between Richie and Cody Yeti a couple of years ago where Cody said he preferred 180 vs 200 because he was light and using 200mm rotors kept he feeling he would go over the bars... but 4 pot calipers if kinda of the standard.
