#!markdown Great question Rob. The short answer is yes. Pad retraction is such that rotor contact/noise is not an issue with the system working perfectly. Both Jeff and I had experienced the problem with past units. The longer answer is - like Magura - the pads sit quite close to the rotor (compared to SRAM or Shimano). It makes the brakes a bit trickier to set up drag free and more sensitive to tweaked rotors. I get a slight rub (noise) leaning my bike into steep left hand uphill turns that I attribute to a rotor I tweaked in a crash. The other improvement over past Formula brakes is definitely the way that power is controlled with a more refined feel at the lever.
