I'm running R7020 levers and M8000 callipers but these are only 2 pot callipers. Not sure you'd get enough fluid movement for 4 pots. I'm running my combo cause my frame is post mount and the R7000 callipers are flat mount. I had to buy new BH90 hoses to suit the callipers but all went together fine and works very well. 

I came down off the Mendips using Broad Road/Westfield Lane and slowed easily from 40mph at times with two fingers.

One question, why 4 pot callipers? Surely that will be overkill for a road bike or are you rinning 203mm rotors too?
