Mountain bikers are constantly faced with the weight vs. durability question. Shimano's had enough. The new XTR disc brakes shave precious grams off your trail rig, while offering 25% more stopping power than the old XTR brakes, which, in Shimano's words, gives you "better grip on the bar for charging through the gnar." These Shimano brakes also give you additional adjustability, Ice-Tech pads and a 14mm-wide lever blade -- better feel for your fingers, less weight.
The short-stroke SERVO-WAVE design gives you quicker engagement for a truly 1-finger braking experience
