strong dh brakes

By ripper

from Rocky Mountain House, AB

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Powerful

Cons

  • Adjustability

Best Uses

  • DH

Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

I out these on my V-10 and use solely for the purpose of DH riding. These brakes are super strong and reliable. You get what you pay for. If you want more adjustabililty, buy the Saints. If you're not too concerned about weight and you're fine with using an allen key for adjustments and want to play less, these are perfect.

                      I like the ZEE brake. good price from jenson. I am using for dh . The cable was a bit long for my bike. I have a medium. The factory bleed was a bit mushy. With a better bleed these hook up and stop you.

                      Pros

                      • Basically Cheaper Saints
                      • Excellent Feel
                      • Excellent stopping power
                      • Excellent Threshold Feel
                      • Relatively inexpensive

                      Cons

                      • Need Tools To Adjust Reac
                      • No Saint Tool-less Reach

                      Best Uses

                      • All Mountainenduro
                      • Downhill

                      Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

                      After installing Saints on my first two Enduro bikes, and on my current DH bike, I decided to save some money and buy the Zees for my current All Mountain/Enduro bike.
                      They're basically Saints, but without the tool-free reach adjust, and contact adjustment that doesn't exist on the Saints either, despite there being a adjustment screw(with loc-tite on it..go figure).
                      I paid $600 for the Saints with rotors, and paid a little less than $400 for the Zee's with the same rotors(Ice Tech). It's a fricken no-brainer, and I wish I would've bought Zee's instead of my other Saints.

                      Comments about Shimano Zee BR-M640 Disc Brake:

                      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.

                      Great brake and a great price, pretty much as good as a saint. Out of the box bleed is pretty weak (my front was stronger than my back) but a proper bleed will fix that. Overall good brake

                      I bought these to replace Avid Code 5 brakes that came on my Kona Operator. These have a smoother lever pull and once broken in are very predictable and give me that added level of confidence. Unless you want to spend the extra to run Saint's, these are just as good IMO.
