No I haven't tried them

but i have read this article article

[quote]Lo stesso discorso vale per le leve dei freni, sicuramente molto aerodinamiche e tecnicamente innovative, ma [b]certamente poco efficaci per una guida mista e un po' nervosa.
Per ottenere spazi di arresto adeguati la forza da esercitare sui pomelli a punta è significativa, senza contare che la modulabilità richiede una certa perizia acquisibile solo dopo un certo numero di chilometri. Del resto non è possibile pensare di avere l'optimum in ogni situazione, e questa bicicletta è stata concepita espressamente per un tipo di percorso piatto, veloce e sostanzialmente privo di curve. La S-works, infatti, tende a saltellare e, come un vero puledro di razza sembra ribellarsi a ogni minimo errore che pregiudichi il suo bagaglio di energia.[/[/b]quote]

Someone (Cadence90) Can help me to translate this article?
Thank you!! :)

...same thing about brake levers, which are very aerodynamic and innovative, but they aren't certainly ment for riding on "twisty and aggressive" roads.
If you want to achieve acceptable braking distances you have to apply significant power on "brake handles", which implies that you'll have to train (for)a lot (of km) in order to become skilled enough to use them.
Obviously it's impossible to get the best in every situation, and this bike is made only for a flat, fast, and straight race...

Bye, Benz.
