    Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Disc Brake:

    I got these to replace my Avid Elixir 5 on my Downhill bike. They are certainly alot more precise. Alot of control on brake power.

    Factory bleed is kind of off.

    Great brakes. Look beautiful and are lightweight.

    I paired them with the Icetech rotors.

    Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Disc Brake:

    I bought these to replace some Avid Elixer9's..

    I am running extremely light rotors and these have more than enough braking power to stop me when I want but yet ton's of modulation for the ultimate control over the braking power..

    These have been total silent in use and have put on nearly 500miles in wet, dry and sandy conditions..

    Minimal brake fade when wet and once used dry quickly and right back to max braking power..

    I went for the max braking power over the XTR's and happy I did.. Not a single regret with this purchase..

    Gives the bike that serious riding look..

    Would buy them again in a second..

    I haven't had to bleed them or any kind of maintenance in 500miles of varied riding..

      Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Disc Brake:

      The Saint brakes are awesome! This purchase was my first pair for my Trek, and I just recently upgraded my Yeti SB66 Race with these. They have all the stopping power when you want it, but can be very smooth and gentle when you don't want to feel like you're going over the bars.

        Amazing brakes. Factory bleed, not even burned in, and already the strongest brake I've ever used... and they look tough. went from xt 2 piston to these and the 4 pistons look like weapons...

              Great product. Works like you would expect a high-end brake to work. Mine has been squeak and fade free. Only the weight of the cooling fins on the pads make them noisy. I stretched the spacer spring and that helped. One of the best upgrades I've made yet.

                Comments about Shimano M820 Saint Disc Brake:

                These are really powerful and have good modulation. I was kinda disappointed that the free stroke adjuster does absolutely nothing helpful. What is does is adjust how far out the lever blades sit, but the bite point stays the same, pretty pointless in my opinion. I would have appreciated some sort of pad adjustment for one of the best brakes on the market. Good brakes none the less, I don't have super long descents close to me but they do get pretty steep and I haven't noticed any fade.

                The brake has great stopping power but limited adjustability. It's also difficult to get a positive consistent bleed.
