Very good overall

4.5 stars out of 5

I've had this for a while now and my opinion of it is very good. It had good bite and good modulation of the power. Very easy to adjust the bite point. Hasn't leaked on me at all. Just lately though I've noticed a bit of a drop off in bite. It's still powerful but definitely not what it was. Don't think it's from contamination. Would recommend it anyway as a cheaper alternative to the hope. If I had a rear disk I would get another of these.

Hi Thomas - I'm glad the brake is working well for you. To try and 'revive' it a little, it may be worth possibly pouring a little water over the pads/rotor, then riding around pulsing the brake on and off (don't do this down a big hill or anywhere likely to get the brake too hot as that can lead to the pads glazing). If you repeat this process a few times you should find your bite and hold improves. Thanks for the review!

Not as expected

Having previously used £25 mechanical disc brakes on my mountain bikes I was expecting something big from these brakes at £100 a shot. Upon arrival, the pads were stuck too close together to get the rotor between them. Anyway, this was soon fixed by the LBS who serviced and set up the brakes etc. Sad to say this as I am usually a fan of echo products, but the bite and performance has never been that great. I keep on having to adjust the bite every 40/50mins; possibly down to a leak. There is just enough power to brake with 1 finger but really have to squeeze a lot. Persevered over the summer to let them bed in but still not outstanding. Also tried using disc brake cleaner to get rid of any oil/fluid etc. on the pads/rotors but not much difference if any. Switched over to Avid Elixir 1's today, less than half the price at £39.99 and they do the job much better. Fitted instantly with no issues and easily enough power for 1 finger braking.

Hi Gavin - Sorry to hear you weren't happy with your Echo brakes. They do tend to take longer to bed in than most other brakes as their rotors are made from a harder material which may explain why they didn't perform at their best. Normal riding seems to not really bed them in particularly well, so we usually recommend pouring a little water over the pads/rotor and pulsing the brake on/off repeatedly. If you repeat this process you'll feel the brake's bite improving, and with it the hold. In our experience, we've also found that disc brake cleaners tend to do more harm than good for a brake's performance as almost all types of cleaner seem to leave behind a residue. Again though, I'm sorry to hear you weren't satisfied with your brake.
