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 BR-M785B Disc Brake:

      A well built braking system that is easy to bleed. Set-up is simple as the brake come pre-bled. NOTE: the lines can be shortened WITHOUT doing another bleed. I find that the lever is a bit short and that the modulation could be better. The stopping power is very strong.

                Comments about Shimano XT BR-M785B Disc Brake:

                I replaced my 2010 Saints with these XT's as i like a very compact single finger lever. I am very impressed with the feel and performance of the XT's.I ride a Knolly Delirium with a heavy build and the XT's have more than enouph braking power.Ive found all the brakes ive tryed to have too much free stroke for me, so i modify the shimano bleed spacers ( thinner ) to allow a slight overfill of the fluid which keeps my pads closer to the disks and reducing alot of unwanted free stroke. Once dailed in like this the XT's feel great and with Jensons price its a no brainer.

                  Great brakes! Very powerful and good modulation. Does not skid the tire out. it slows them down! Had avids before and braking power did not compare!

                    I upgraded to these from some Elixir 7s that were having issues with air bubbles and consistent feel from ride to ride. These are absolutely solid brakes and have performed great so far. I really like the lever feel for one finger braking and the consistent performance. Stopping power is great as well. Many people say that Shimanos feel a little to binary and don't modulate as well as other brakes but I haven't had any issues.

                          Excellent brakes for the price. Great stopping power and easy to feather. These brakes will last you for years. Just make sure you bleed them once or twice a year and replace the pads as needed. I would recommend any XT product. It's nice that the brakes come pre-bled, but most of the time you will need to trim the cable down anyway.
