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

        Comments about Shimano XT M785B Hydraulic Disc Brake:

        The package is pre-bled. Most likely the brake lines may need to be cut to fit your bike. The package comes with a spare olive for cutting and resizing the hose to the proper length. No need to re-bled as most bike shop insisted that you do when installing new brakes.

        Comments about Shimano XT M785B Hydraulic Disc Brake:

        Last time I had hydraulics was on a 2005 Specialized Enduro, Avid 3's, and I hated them. After the second time going for a ride only to discover that the brakes were "frozen" or some other issue, I decided good old cables were the only way to go. Almost 10 years later, I decided to give another try, and I'm really glad I did. The Avid BB7 mechanicals I've been running are good, but the feel and stopping power of these is seriously insane. It takes so little force to slow or stop, and it's just a really solid, pleasant "feel." So long as they prove to be reliable, I imagine I will be very happy with these breaks. The look is cool, although I just bought a GT Anthem with stock Deore hydraulics, and I prefer the simple design and solid black of the Deore, but the XT has a noticeably upper level feel over the Deore. I also bought the ice tech 86 rotors, which feel very solid, and look really cool as well.

          Switched to these from having a pair of Hayes strokers and I couldn't be happier! Braking was a pain before and now it's just great. Xt's are super easy to bleed which was night and day compared to the troublesome task of bleeding strokers! Def worth the money

          Comments about Shimano XT M785B Hydraulic Disc Brake:

          This is the newer "B" model. Works with the newer I-spec "B" shifters which I also purchased. Great, easy to use interface to mount.

          Only disagreement is the rear line is 3" shorter than the brakes I removed. Would be nice if the rear was longer, need 1770, and the front is shorter, who needs 1000 mm?

          Compared to the Avids I removed, the Magura MT4's on my last bike, Magura Marta SL's, and Hayes (2004 vintage), these brakes are light years beyond those and at a price that is hard to beat. Love the shorty lever to boot, have always hated full size levers when only one finger is doing the braking.
