The candidates for my second racing bike at moment are:

FSA SL-K
TRP Euro-X
Avid Shorty Ultimate

As we know almost everything on the TRP and Avid ones, I'm looking for feedbacks on the FSA SL-K in a real world scenario
They seem to have a good value for money and the claimed weight is not bad (not sure if it's real)

I'm willing to consider other options
Any suggestions ?

Thx

The FSA's are easy to adjust the pad height and angle just like the Avids. Making your life easier if you plan on running more then one wheelset.

Came in here to post this. Seriously they're pretty incredible, and made in my hometown of Chico, CA!

Avids are a great brake at a very competitive price. A big plus is being able to set them up wide or skinny depending on the conditions and it is a very easy change to make. Braking power is very good and modulation is great.
