Good quality brake lever recommendations.

Can you recommend good quality brake levers at a decent price? I have Pazzo ones on the Blade and find them excellent but was hoping to spend a bit less this time. Mixed results with Chinese brands in the past so probably won't go that route (unless they're particularly good rip-offs!)

TITAX or TITEX

Not going out to the shed to check the spelling but they are great quality.

Most likely lol. But at least a respected brand might have decent quality control.

I would have said the same until recently. I bought some seemingly we'll finished ones from the2wheels which had recieved good reviews The tang on the lever that presses the brake light switch is a gee-hair too short and won't quite meet the switch. Also adjustment isn't great with the furthest setting a little to close for me.

Agree. The pazzo ones on the blade and even returning to the stock ones on the Busa for the time being feels better. Pity the stockers are too long and too hideous looking.

Looking at them. 109 euro for a shorty brake lever is a bit steep but I think I'll just bite the bullet.
