>we can say that it is more akin to the likes of a Click Up or Smart than it is a GRIGRI or Matik. That is to say, there are no moving parts..

Just for the record, the Click Up and Alpine Up have a moving part.

Some of us are of the opinion that while the Pilot has no moving parts it doesn´ t have any function until the user adds one
In reply to rgold:

You are quite right, and I think it’s that very moving part (albeit a very subtle one) that is the key to the Click Up’s success and usability. None of the other devices in the same category have - at least in my eyes - the same sort of handling as the Click Up as a result.

Be interesting to see how the ATC Pilot does in the more thorough review.

Feel free to send it for real testing, like actually measuring what it does. It´ s prior reputaton for slipping doesn´ t bode well for actual braking performance but who knows?
