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

Good not great

Replaced Elixer 5 and is better plus easier to use but does not have braking strength that I have read on other reviews for rear brake even after installing 180mm rotor. Love the levers...Read complete review

            Awesome performance like always on the XTs. Don't think I could ever justify the XTRs for the performance of the XTs. For me the weight savings is not important to go to the XTRs.

              Went right on with no problems. Since they come pre-bled, I didn't need to worry about mess or hassle. I adjusted the lever feel for my own preferences and I was done. They work so much better and quieter than the Formula brake set-up they replaced.

                    I can't say a bad thing about these brakes. When you look at their performance, longevity, ease of use & maintenance, and affordability you won't find a better brakeset. I've always loved the ergonomics of Shimano brake levers and the one finger design is comfortable and all you need for great stopping power.

                    Installed on 29er FS enduro bike with 180 mm rotors.
