HS33's are superb I changed my XTR V's for them and the increase in power and modulation is unbelivable!

http://www.magura.com/english/bremsen/firm_tech.htm :!:

magura rond fork including a hs 33 brake called "firm tech"
- absolutely great forks and even better brakes - and it's lighter !!!!!!!!!!!!

100% uncompromising function. The brake is directly mounted behind the lower legs featuring maximum
brake power because of self reinforcement effect during
rotation of the wheel.

Weight: 150 grams weight reduction compared to a standard HS 33 rim brake.

Unique design with unmatched function giving your bike a real cool and a "face" on the trails.

Equipment: FIRM-tech is only available as complete package, consisting of a preassembled HS 33 in silver on a Quake Air or 024U suspension fork.

Note: FIRM-tech can neither be retrofitted on standard MAGURA forks nor on forks of other manufacturers. It is also impossible to retrofit FIRM-tech on a bike frame.

Recommended use: Race, X-country

Weight maniacs warning!
With FIRM-tech there are no further excuses for a heavy front end! A HS 33 in its FIRM-tech version is an incredible 99 grams lighter than a XT V-brake. Together with a Quake Air you have a combination which will simply trash the competition both function and weight wise.

HS33 will be more powerful than a xtr , if you want to save weight and get more power and confort , go get a RBdesign lever. They weight 78g , have a longer lever. and are designed for 1 finger . Look really nice too...

Those levers will fit any kind of hydro V brakes. They also make a version for magura disc brakes. I have those levers on my KOXX XTP trial bike...
