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

This purchase was an upgrade from my stock Avid X0 Trail WC brakes. These brakes didn't work for me, maybe they are defected. My main issue is that the bike would vibrate and cause a lot of noise thus less braking power and less confidence in what I'm doing. I had a bike shop look at it and the only thing they could do to fix the issue is use resin pads. These come stock with metallic pads which work great on my front brake. These should work with the pads it comes with as many of my friends have, but they didn't for me. Hopefully my replacements will work and I can update this review. Thanks

        Comments about Shimano XT BR-M785B Disc Brake:

        I bought a 2014 Stumpjumper HT Comp few months ago. The original brakes that came with it were the Formula C1. Those brakes suck! When I used them, it creaks so loud my cycling pals got scarried. That´s the reason I decided to change them, installing the brand new Shimano XT 785 Ice Tech. The XT are so reliable and quiet that I feel more confident going down hills faster.

                  Awesome performance like always on the XTs. Don't think I could ever justify the XTRs for the performance of the XTs. For me the weight savings is not important to go to the XTRs.
