sram red aero link weigh 251 gr w/ pads, so 230 gr w/out pads.
compared to those, weigth saving of ee-brakes shrinks to 56 gr.

not just the weight, they are much better brakes than the sram.

and this ^^^

in march i switched from the same sram red brakes (used all weathers since 2010, still in great condition), they weren't bad, but the ee brake's modulation and power are much better

I have SRAM Force brakes which I believe are mechanically identical to RED and they are more than adequate, I can lift or lock the rear any time on dry asphalt - don't know why I would need better brakes than that.

I needed lighter ones on one bike though, so I'm on Ciamillos which still stop me fine - 168g with pads :D

I have Sram Red on three bikes and agree with the above, but it comes down to needing much more effort on the brake lever to achieve the same stopping distance, and when you squeeze hard you lose modulation control. If you are sub 75 kg or don't ride steep descents, than you may not know the terror wishing you had better brakes.

EE is one of those rare beasts that is both lighter and better.

Agree, for the money, the ee brakes needs to be light (it does saves quite a bit of weight!) and powerful enough too, and they really are.

77kg and ride in the Austrian Alps :)

But maybe I'm just used to riding long descents.

But you are in Vienna.:P I bet if you lived in Innsbruck you might feel differently. :P :P Nothing wrong with Sram brakes, my point is ultimately that while very good, they are not the best.

the SRAM brakes work well but are a pain in the ass to live with.. like zero Gs they go out of alignment at the drop of a hat..
personally i'm EE brakes all the way
