Yes, but like I said: contact surface is much smaller. The 4 piston caliper has much bigger pads. And more power due to the 2 extra pistons.

Hydraulic V-Brakes would be awesome :D I think you flip every time you hit the front brake!
i can do that with those XLC pads on bulls :D i was doing stoppies with them

looks like i have to go for 4 pistons and bigger rotors. tho there is better brake pads for those brakes too, and they are not that expensive. those pads are made by Tektro and you can even use them with E-Bikes

Funny story. I did tons of those way back. Was fun.

Once I decided to do another one and due to whatever the fuck my fingers (2 of them always) slipped off the brake and guess what happened.
