Shimano Deore XT BR-M785 Disc Brakes
Lighter, more powerful, and more compact than ever - the Shimano XT BR-M785 Disc Brakes is sporting some serious upgrades from its 2012 overhaul. The short stroke Servo-Wave mechanism delivers quick pad engagement and plenty of power that's easily controlled with a single finger. While the amount of stopping power is remarkable, there's no need to fret about the heat generated as you scrub scrub all that speed due to the oversized ceramic pistons providing heat insulation for the brake fluid plus caliper fins further dissipating heat. Combine with an appropriately sized Ice-Tech rotor for optimum braking performance to match your riding style. So whether you're racing singletrack or shredding more aggressive trails, this brake is designed to meet the demands of your riding style.
Note that i-Spec-B brake levers do not integrate with shifters that have the original i-Spec. They can be used separately, with separate clamps, but they do not integrate.
  • Short stroke Servo-Wave mechanism provides quicker pad engagement and more braking power
  • Forged caliper and alloy brake lever blend strength and weight savings
  • Two oversized 22mm ceramic pistons provide heat insulation for your brake fluid, reducing the need for regular maintenance
  • Ice-Tech alloy caliper fins dissipate heat further, which is great for aggressive descents
  • Adjustable reach and free stroke let you customize the feel of the levers
  • I-spec B-compatible lever mounting option lets you save weight and clean up your handlebar area
  • Shimless mounting makes for quick and easy installation
  • Uses non-corrosive mineral oil
  • Includes brake caliper, hose and lever
  • Specify Front or Rear brake

            Comments about Shimano Deore XT BR-M785 Disc Brakes:

            I was cautious about spending this much on a set of brakes. Now that i know how awesome they are i would do it again in a heartbeat. Great stopping power and great modulation. This is the first true one finger brake i've ever used, even though others claimed to be one finger.

            Comments about Shimano Deore XT BR-M785 Disc Brakes:

            Bought these for my Specialized Epic Comp 29er to replace the Magura MTS setup. BIG difference, the XT's have tremendous stopping power with only one finger!!! The Magura's (rear) took two fingers and were too spongy for my style of riding. Also,I was able to use my Storm SL rotors with no problems. If you're looking for great brakes at a great price look no further!

            This is good stuff, Shimano make Quality.
            PS. The SLX is just as good, only missing a un-needed adjustment and uses the standard pin for the disc pads and return spring

                    As with any other Shimano component, the quality is there. Modulation is key with XT brakes. Whether you're barely moving or going fast the modulation is the same and these don't lock up or get spongy on fast downhill runs. SLX brakes would've been just fine since they are basically the same technology just a tad heavier and a satin finish. Weight wasn't really an issue for me however the price made my decision to pick these up. Plus who doesn't dig chrome?! I've been very happy spending the money to get the better brake system. Not only do they look good but offer awesome performance.
