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 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

        I've used many different disc brakes, and these have been my favorite. Their stopping power is incredible. Extremely easy to service and can easily be adjusted to suit your liking. Buy them…especially at this price.

            Comments about Shimano XT BR-M785B Disc Brake:

            The best Trail-bike brake available, no question. Shimano brakes are quiet, almost maintenance-free, and so easy to bleed. The first upgrade or best option on any bike, they are nice in that you can cut down brake-lines and not have to bleed, and easy to adjust.

            I use these brakes on my Trail and AM/Enduro bikes currently, they have survived all day bike park sessions at Big Bear and Mammoth in California, and all-day shuttling sessions, and do not show one sign of fading or failing. My only negative is the price on pad replacements, they are pricey but they're worth it.

              Ice Tech pads are awesome. I thought the cooling fins were just marketing but I noticed a difference on long descents after having the normal pads. Upgraded from Avid Elixer Rs and I never knew brakes could run so quiet.

              These brakes beat those at higher price points. They feel solid with reliable braking. The replacement pads with the fins are pricey, but you can pickup aftermarket pads without the fins at a reasonable price.

              Hands down, Great Brakes!!

              Switched over to these from Formula RX because no longer could stand the horrible noises the Formulas made. What an amazing difference. Paired with the IceTec rotors I have absolutely no noise what-so-ever. Not a peep! And the stopping power is excellent. Love the adjustibility as well but they're really pretty much a set it & forget it product.
