XTR Race
Underpowered brakes lead to defensive riding technique and, ultimately, to slower lap times. Enter the new XTR Race brake, which encourages racers to attack technical downhill sections with confidence, leaving the competition squealing and squawking in the dust.

How? First off, they produce 110% of the braking power of their predecessors, while shedding precious grams at the same time, so they’re as viable a race-bike pick as ever. Throw in ergonomically re-engineered lever pivots and XTR Race lays on that power with single-finger effort.

The key factor for racers is confidence—the confidence to win, and the confidence to lay off the brakes, knowing theyll be there when theyre needed, every time.

Levers:
With ten percent more power than the previous XTR brake, the sleek new XTR Race lever has been ergonomically redesigned for a versatile fit on the handlebars, superior feel at the fingertips and unsurpassed function on the race course.
* 110% power rating compared to BR-M970s
* Shorter, 13-millimeter brake lever with more efficient pivot location (1.5 finger)
* Integrated barrel reservoir design
* Hinge-clamp mounting bracket
* High-power hose for consistent performance
* Combine with I-Spec bracket to reduce handlebar clutter
* Resin pad compound with alloy backing plate (standard)

Calipers:
When coupled with the XTR Race lever the new forged one-piece M985 caliper delivers a balance of light weight and power that resists performance-sapping heat better than ever before thanks to an industry-first full-ceramic piston.
* One piece forged post-mount caliper
* Oversized ceramic piston (opposed 2-piston type)
* Aluminum banjo hose fitting

Approximately 220 grams for the rear (lever, caliper, and hose)
Uses Shimano Mineral Oil only

Includes lever, caliper and hose
Post mount calipers
Brakes comes pre-bled

    Comments about Shimano XTR M985 Disc Brake OE:

    I like the hinged design, easy to install. Light weight, great in modulation, yet powerful (not as powerful than formula, because of the smoothness in modulation.) Was on sale at Jenson so, i got the best of both worlds, quality and inexpensive when on sale :-)

      Comments about Shimano XTR M985 Disc Brake OE:

      Got these to replace XT trail brakes this year. These have a lot of bling factor to them being so shiny. They are lighter but do miss the lever adjustability on the XTs and the Ice Tech pads. I found these to be a bit over matched for a larger rider with a more aggressive style. I upgraded the pads and that seemed to help a bit.
