I'm trying to decide whether to use SRAM Red or DA components on my new frame. My main concern is the effective braking provided by Red calipers as compared to DuraAce which I have always used. From what I can tell from my internet searches, DA is the standard by which all other brakes are measured. For those that use SRAM and ride in the mountains, do the brakes work well? Do you feel they have enough stopping power? I'm in the mid 180s# FWIW. Have to used both DA and SRAM and can make the comparison?
My wife has Red on her bike though at her weight stopping power is less of an issue. They work fine for her.
