TRP HyRd vs SRAM Force Hydraulic Discs

I recently picked up a Trek Crockett with SRAM Force Hydraulic discs and was very curious to see how they work. My previous bike had the TRP HyRd "hybrid" brakes. I was expecting the SRAM brakes to have more power, however, I seem to have been proven wrong.

It seems to me that the TRPs are the better brakes out of the two.

Both bikes are running the same size rotors.

Lever feel is VERY similar between the two, but the TRPs seem to require less force and have equal amounts of modulation.

Thoughts? I was under the impression full hydraulics would be better.

p.s., both are garbage compared to my mountain bikes brakes.

The TRPs HyRd get great reviews. Carefull installation of compressionless brake cable housing provide a direct feel. I'm considering them for my budget-build gravel bike.

After getting the chance to compare them to the SRAM Force brakes I can't recommend them enough. I set mine up with Yokozuna Reaction Cables. They were probably one of the easiest to setup brakes I've used.
