Shimano XT M785B Hydraulic Disc Brake

Riding comfortably at high speeds requires an unconscious, intuitive confidence in your machine. It requires knowing that whatever conditions you come across your brakes will be ready and able to deliver reliable control in any situation. Say hello to XT Brakes, and say goodbye to compromise. The integration of Servo-Wave brake-boosting technology into XT brakes delivers gobs of lightweight stopping power.

With 22mm ceramic pistons to increase power, reduce vibrations and shed performance-sapping heat, coupled with innovative IceTech aluminum-core rotors (sold separately) to even further keep heat buildup at bay, these all-new brakes maintain cool, quiet performance under fire

  • Servo wave levers with tool free stroke and position adjustment
  • All Shimano pre-bled brakes come with hose insert, and olive for cutting and resizing the hose to the proper length
  • I-spec shift lever compatible
  • 2-finger brake lever
  • One-way bleeding caliper and hinged lever clamp for easy installation and maintenance
  • Opposed ceramic 2-piston design helps absorb rotor heat and vibration
  • High rigidity caliper for strong braking with minimal weight
  • +25% power increase over BR-M975
  • Hub/Brake Compatibility: 6-Bolt Disc/Center-Lock Disc
  • Rotor and adaptor not included
  • Caliper Type: 74mm Post Mount
  • Hydraulic Hose Length: 1000mm (front), 1700mm (rear)
  • Metal ICE TECH pads with radiator fins
  • Minor change to mounting hole dimensions from previous version. By this change, caliper mount width become a little wider and might cause interference with frames designed for current dimensions. Please check it with BR-M820 or BR-M640 that have already designed with new caliper mount width
  • 2011-2013 model year I-spec shifters are not directly compatible with BL-M785-B levers and will require ISMSL78BP I-spec conversion kit

        Replaced the stock elixir 7 brakes on my bike because there was no modulation and they would heat up and become sticky/grabby. Installed the XT and brakes don't squel and modulation is the best I have felt so I'm much faster rider and tires are going to last longer from not locking up when I want brakes

          Comments about Shimano XT BR-M785B Disc Brake:

          These replaced a set of XTR M975 brakes when the XTR brake lever seals failed just out of warranty and weren't repairable. A lot more powerful than the XTR brakes, the metallic pads work better and are quieter than the resin XTR pads. The brakes bedded in very fast, 3-4 fast stops and they were 100% ready.

            Switch to XTs over Avid Trial 7 brakes. These are the best brakes I ever tried, as good as the XTRs, but a little more weight on them, not enough to pay double the price, stick to XTs, best power brakes ever. Search google for reviews, you'll find out way!

              These are sweet brakes! I love having the shifters set-up on the brakes all in a clean little package. I have these with the ICE rotors as well and they work as they should no issues. They have a great feel when coming into a corner hot and just needing to scrub some speed to rip through the corner.
              Big prop's to the people at Jenson for outstanding service, pricing and knowledge!
              Keep up the great work!

                A well built braking system that is easy to bleed. Set-up is simple as the brake come pre-bled. NOTE: the lines can be shortened WITHOUT doing another bleed. I find that the lever is a bit short and that the modulation could be better. The stopping power is very strong.

                        Excellent brakes, used along with a 160mm Shimano Saint RT99 Rotor. Easy adjustment, amazing modulation and power. Silent even in the rain, everyone should have a pair of these.
