So what are alternatives to the SRAM Red aero brakes, which would have similar aero properties and weigh 250g or less, and have to brake as good. Usability has to be good, meaning I am not going to put up with calipers that need adjustment every time I take a ride.

Any suggestions are welcome...

The Sram Red Aerolink brakes aren't any more aero than the next non-aero brakeset just because they threw the word 'aero' in there... Look at Magura RT8C, this is the version that mounts to mechanical levers. All other aero brakes are pretty much very far from comparable performance vice with ordinary Red brakes. You just can't have centerpull or a short non-protruding side mounted lever arm and get enough leverage for decent performance.

But the RT8 is probably more than 250g, and I doubt it is actually very aero, no matter what Magura claims.

Non-powerful true aero brakes, Simkins Egg, TriRig Omega...
