Tektro TRP ML950 brake levers £80

Full-carbon V-brake lever bling

BikeRadar score 3/5

Despite early reservations about how durable a full-carbon brake lever would be, after two years of use these have proved to be unfounded.

The pair weighs 128g and yet feels chunky. The hinged single-bolt bar clamp makes for easy removal, while the Teflon bushes and sprung lever ensure smooth, snappy action.

We’ve bashed ours a bit and, apart from a bit of cosmetic scuffing, they’re just fine, justifying the asking price. If you can't stretch to carbon, the alloy ML930 is £35.
