I’m confident that the Shimano calipers would have been adequate. However, we are a llarger team (around 340 pounds) will add some weight in luggage occasionally, and have some 20% descents.

So for less than $100 and maybe 50 grams, thought the Hopes would be worth a try.

Also, the red anodized calipers work with our color scheme!
