If you have PLOD (Plastic Levers of Death) found on many X-mart bikes, do yourself a favor and replace them with these ASAP!
It is a cheap, but very necessary upgrade to your bike if any part of your brake levers are made of plastic. The plastic levers will easily give out when put under pressure in emergency braking situations, especially if the main housing of your levers are plastic and you are using the tension adjuster on the brake lever to provide adequate braking power. The adjuster on cheap plastic levers are threaded into the weak plastic and will easily strip out when applying heavier braking force, which will mean loss of braking ability, possibly ending up in a crash. Luckily I found this out while not in an emergency braking situation, but in the process of testing the braking ability of some excellent new Kool Stop brake pads. BTW: If you still have your original manufacturer brake pads on, you should also replace those with the awesome Kool Stop ones,...
I couldn't be happier with these brake levers. Didn't cost much but has really stood up to my abuse. I ride a Raleigh Ram 2.0 full suspension MTB and I jump it more than anything. It's also been down some gnarly trails, and has taken some mean spills. On one crash, the lever bent (just a little), but on a similar crash before, it completely broke my old lever! (don't remember the brand off hand) They have 4 levels of adjustment and feel really solid. I recommend this lever!
Will only fit flat mtn bars, I have track bull horns and they would not go around the bend. The diameter of the opening was too small. Tried to pry them open enough and feared cracking the aluminum. Over all, build quality seemed good.
