It’s still a ServoWave brake so I’d be pleasantly surprised if it didn’t act like a ServoWave brake. That said, I doubt it re. a review but I’ve had much better experiences with Shimano 4-piston brakes (Saint / Zee) than 2-piston models and the price is right so I’d give them a go if the opportunity came up. The brake I’d REALLY like to try from Shimano is their XT Trekking lever (non-ServoWave) mated to a Saint or Zee calliper. In the summer mind you. Once you go with carbon/resin brake levers in the winter it’d be hard to give a fair test to brakes with aluminum levers comparatively (at least with my hands). Best overall value brakes I’ve ridden (aluminum levers) are the Formula Cura 2 (loads of power) and the MT Trail Sport. That performance vs. price vs. maintenance.
