Our review

Not light, but decent power and feel with great features at a good price

It looks and feels a bit basic, but the updated Sting Pro ticks all the boxes at a really reasonable price.

The lever uses a contemporary L-shaped flip-flop layout with an inset gold anodised reach adjust roller, and a rotary bite point adjuster similar to that found on the old Formula Oro.

There’s a bit of blade rattle, but the two-piece clamp makes it particularly easy to fit and we found that the wavy rotor shoved any unwanted rubbish out of the way effectively.

Braking power is slap bang in the middle of the pack in both wet and dry, with reasonable modulation as you pull harder.

Bleeding is simple, with either a screw-in syringe kit or a conventional bleed valve on the calliper, and it takes Hope brake pads so finding spares is really easy.
