What is a 4 pot brake caliper?

Are 4 pot brakes worth it?

The only time you just really don’t need 4 piston brakes is if you live in an area with mostly XC riding. 4 piston brakes will be slightly heavier than 2 piston brakes, so if you live in a flat area and mainly ride cross country and don’t need more stopping power, then a 2 piston brake is probably better for you.

Is 6 or 4 pot better?

In my opinion, when comparing 4pot to 6pot, the 6pots are more for bling factor than performance. They add a lot of extra weight and don’t really stop much harder. They will have slightly more heat resistance, but good fluid and pads on 4pots should do you fine.
