I have a relatively old hardtail MTB installed with Formula RX brake system and rotors SM-RT53 (160mm) / SM-RT53M (180mm). Now I have to replace the brake system and would like to have some advice.
To be honest I am overwhelmed by the huge amount of product selections. Could anyone give me some direction or specific recommendation?
It was OK with the Formula RX performance, and I would like to have something with similar price/performance classes.
However, robustness of brake system is more important for me than brake performance. I ride just tour on not really challenging trails, prefer ascending than downhill, and I may have trailers with a kid. And I would probably at first keep both SM-RT53(M) unchanged.
Are 4-pistons necessary? or if my rotors are suitable for those?
