Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake

Shimano M640 Zee Hydraulic Disc Brake

Shimano Zee in a new line of gravity components that comes at a friendlier price point than the Shimano Saint big brother. The new Zee hydraulic disc brakes feature a powerful four piston caliper and shorty style brake levers. The brakes come with Ice Technology brake pads that will help keep your brakes running cool even when the downhill course gets gnarly. Zee brakes have One-Way bleeding, for fast and easy maintenance.

  • I-spec B
  • I-spec "B" type is the newer version, for the older I-spec "A" type
  • SERVO WAVE lever pivot
  • Shorty Levers
  • High rigidity ceramic pistons for heat insulation
  • Anti-slip dimpled lever blade
  • Super stiff high power 3-layer brake hose for a more consistent lever feel
  • One-Way bleed for easy and clean servicing
  • 4 piston caliper
  • Note: Rotor is not included

I bought a set of these brakes to replace a set of Hayes Stroker Trails. WOW, they are awesome! Installation was easy. When bleeding the brakes, you don't have to worry about the oil eating the paint if you spill a drop. When you pair the brakes with the Ice Tech rotors, they are almost impossible to overheat. The only gripe I have is that replacement pads are expensive. Especially the ones with the heat fin.

The brakes are great but if you take a spill the levers snap off like twigs. The levers get thin at the bend and that is where it snaps. I order 2 more lever assemblies but they are all on back order so I am assuming this is common issue. I would recommend XT brake levers and Zee quad piston unit

Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

My Rocky Mountain Altitude came with very basic Shimano Deore brakes, and because I'm a bigger dude, I was maxxing them out all the time.

The ZEE brakes have phenomenal stopping power, I can do more with one finger than I could with 2 on the original brakes. I find that I can allow myself to carry more speed and brake much later as well.

Fantastic brakes that I put on my son's DH bike. Only wish they had the lever adjusters so you didn't have to use an Allen key.

Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

I recently purchased these to upgrade from a set of Avid Elixir R's. These are move powerful, have better modulation, and don't suffer from brake fade at bike parts. I have been very satisfied with my purchase.

Solid stoppers

By Jon

Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

Stops as advertised. You will want to get used to them before hitting the trail. But for a bigger rider in need of reliable stopping power these are spot on. If you are worried about weight look elsewhere

Zee brakes

By Jstew

from Golden CO.

Verified Buyer

Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

The Shimano Zee brake set doe not have the activation pressure/ click into place feeling that I get from other Shimano brakes which I like a lot. These brakes also provide room for modulation while being able to lock them up when necessary. Much more powerful than my Guide R's in DH settings.
