What’s good? Th­ese are the first short levers I have used and I was pleas­antly sur­prised with them. To be­gin with I was ques­tion­ing their ben­e­fit, but they saw me through my daily com­mute up and down the A1 with no prob­lems at all. I was also very im­pressed with their fin­ish and how they com­pli­mented the look of the bike. They have a very high qual­ity feel to them and the anti-slip in­serts re­ally do help with clutch con­trol at low speeds. I also found their smaller size quite con­fi­dence in­spir­ing when us­ing the brakes, of­fer­ing a good level of feed­back and a nat­u­ral po­si­tion for my hands. There is plenty of ad­just­ment too, mak­ing them suit­able for even the long­est of fin­gers.

What’s not? Their smaller size did some­times be­come a bit of a pain in slow mov­ing traf­fic. Con­stantly en­gag­ing and dis­en­gag­ing the clutch with only two or three fin­gers on the lever would of­ten cause my hand to hurt. This made the ride un­com­fort­able un­til I was out of the jam, and even then it took a few miles to shake the ache.
