Shimano’s new XT brake isn’t light and the bite point adjustment is limited but it offers innovative mountain-proof power and outstanding single-finger control.
The double barreled master cylinder design looks weird, but the short, deeply crooked grip lever is ergonomically superb and reach adjustment is easy via the tool-free knob too. The ‘Servo Wave’ cam action means plenty of free running pad clearance but serious power and fantastic feedback on contact.
The M785 trail brake comes with finned heat reducing Ice Technologies pads as standard which gives it excellent heat tolerance.
