How do the Paul Klampers Stack Up Against Modern MTB Brakes? The Paul Klamper MTB Review

Today we head to Hiline trail in Sedona, AZ to test the Paul Klampers in an MTB environment. A lot of people have been curious to know if they have what it takes to make it as a modern MTB brake. In this video we get brutally honest with the Paul Klampers and talk about the pros and cons of them. Learn more about these brakes here:

I know this video challenges many people’s assumptions about hydraulic and cable disc brakes. It’s natural to feel defensive and angry when your assumptions are challenged, but I encourage everyone to keep an open mind. I have absolutely nothing to gain by saying what I said. I’m not paid for this review, and I’m not in cahoots with Paul to promote these. These aren’t BB7s; these are hand-machined with top of the line alloys and hardened parts. Are they worth the price? That’s up to you. They’re not cheap at all, but I fully expect them to last from bike to bike to bike. I would be thrilled to have these on all of my bikes.
