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 my OEM brakes which had a poor feel and always seemed to need to be bleed.
              I'm mechanically inclined although had never tackled this type of replacement. They easily swapped with my existing brakes, and the parts to shorten the hoses were all included. Most importantly, these brakes are pre bleed and worked great once installed.
              Easy to adjust reach and minimal break in needed. Wow! Very happy with the change.

                I replaced my Avid Elixir 5s with these brakes, and what a world of improvement. These brakes have excellent stopping power and are 100% consistent. The feel and modulation is exactly the same every time I use them. Great brakes.

                  I have these brakes on my 29" mountain bike. I don't mind having mix and match components, so for the sake of comparison I have the Shimano Zee on the front and these XT's on the rear. The Zee's were about $65 more and I honestly can say the XT''s might be just a little better. Super easy installation, tool free pull adjustment which is great in the fly. And let's not forget about the stopping power which is amazing. Best bang for your buck right here, if you need to upgrade brakes these are the ones.

                  Comments about Shimano XT BR-M785B Disc Brake:

                  These brakes replaced the Avid Elixir 5's that came with my bike. As someone who is newer to mountain biking, and a former motocrosser, I thought that hydraulic brakes on bicycles were not great and it was just something I'd have to get used to. I ended up having issues with both the front and rear Elixir 5, so I brought it to my LBS for work. For what it cost to repair the brakes, plus they each needed pads, I decided to upgrade. After asking around, the Shimano Deore XT is what was recommended. That's the point where my world was turned upside down...

                  I got the brakes and decided I was going to install them myself. It was so easy that I thought I did something wrong! After about 973 nose wheelies in the yard, I decided they were ready for the trail.

                  Once on the trail, the difference between the XT's and the Elixir 5's was stupid. It was like I didn't previously even have brakes! The feel was perfect, the stopping power was jaw dropping, the women wouldn't stop giving me their number. These brakes should be renamed "Shimano RoXTar".

                  After reading a few reviews here on Jenson, I was a bit worried about the levers. I read a few reviews about people not liking the shorter levers. I typically only use a max of two fingers on the brakes anyways, so I took the chance. I personally love the feel of the levers. If you used more than three fingers to pull in the lever, you'd probably go over the bars. That isn't a joke, but something I've actually said in seriousness to my buddies.

                  These brakes were the best upgrade I could've made to my bike. They feel more like the very powerful brakes on my motocross bike than I could've ever expected. I'm hoping I can buy another set to put on my other bike. I used to think the brakes on my other bike were good (Hayes something or other), but these XT's are better than those, too.

                        I've never worried about brake fade issues with these brakes. Never have brake drag issues that always is an issue with AVID. They are relatively lightweight and the pads last longer then any other setups I've used. For the adjustability and price I don't think you can get anything better.
