They look awesome.

All those hollow bolt joints say "you can put your weed in here" to me.. For some reason

Very nice but from those images, it does not look like those brakes would play nice with Zipp Firecrests (303/404/808).

I have them on my ENVE 6.7 tight bite but i like my break grab short not deep. the barrel is in all the way and I can quickly adjust them for my bora ultra 88's and enve 1.25's

Spring is a bit soft for my taste, EE is my favorite as far as the feel for it. :beerchug:

The ee is a great brake, and for the price the best set under $1000. But the look just put me off.

I'm really keen on that THM brakes , in add the new ones have same 'dual pivot' (sorry for my english) ! between front and rear
I tested many brakes
COPERCOOK , do you ride with them ?
Can you tell us more about power , stiffness , is the spring stiff (I love powerfull return)...

I have them installed on my Crumpton and have about 125 miles with them. Installation was pretty easy just followed the instructions. Centering them was kinda easy. You use there tool set at center point then there centered. There is float both ways but if you center them properly they always go back to being centered. I would say the front brake is on par with the Dura-Ace 7900 I replaced it with on stopping power. The rear is not as strong but if you read there discription it does what they claim to prevent wheel lock up. Overall I'm very pleased. The return rate seems ok to me but others claim its to soft. Hope that helps.

I have about 250 miles on them now and switched to my other bike that is equiped with 7900's and I must say I prefer the THM's. The 7900 felt soft compared the Fibulias. I have had AX lightness, KCNC's, Record and 7900's I would say I liked these the best. I would agree that they arent the best looking brakes but not the worst either. Just my 2cents
