If you don't need more, then you don't need more. There are lots of folks in lots of places, including here, who get along fine with SRAM Guide brakes too. The E4 feels great at the lever and they look boss, but I gave them a very honest couple sets of pads before selling them on. The thing about a more powerful brake system is the power band tends to be more controllable (don't have to pull them as hard as you can all the time) which is really useful trying to control a bike down steep janky trails in limited traction situations. If you do decide you need/want more power/control then any of the brakes in my opening paragraph bring a lot more to bear than the E4. As I said, I would love to try the more powerful V4 system.
