Shimano XT Disc Brake M785

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 dimpled 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.

Shimano XT Disc Brake M785 Features:

  • Servo wave disc brake system
  • 125% power rating
  • Over-sized 22mm Ceramic pistons
  • Ice-Tech brake pads
  • Easy-bleed System

Rated 5 out of 5 by Em resumo é um ótimo produto Em primeiro lugar parabéns para a CRC, serviço de primeira classe. E sobre os freios, é um belo freio, ótimo custo-benefício. Só perde mesmo para o xtr por causa da hierarquia shimano. Nota 10. 15 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Product Just bought a pair for my Glory, have ridden Saint and Zee brakes and the XT's perform better than Zee and as good as Saint with half the price. Highly Recommended!!!!! 10 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality, easy install, big stopping power Bought these to replace the Avids that came with my bike. Well made, easy to install and absolutely amazing stopping power. Going to buy a marching one for my rear now! 29 March 2014

Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent brakes There isn't much to say that hasn't already been said. I replaced my Avid Elixir's with these and they are superb. The modulation is perfect although out of the box the lever travel seems quite a lot, but once you've been out and had a few go's so to speak, you realise just how good they are. Only gripe is the setup... the Shimano way of just clamping down the pads to the discs then tighten the caliper didn't work for me. I found aligning caliper without pads followed by pads in and final tweak was far better. Hose shortening is also very easy... no bleed kit or special tools required 16 March 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent brakes Super reliable, super lever feel and modulation and super power. The only better brake on the market might be the XTR, but at quite a price premium over these. 06 March 2014

Answer: 
Thanks for the information. Now I know what's its called I'm able to do a little more digging. It's not really a bite point adjuster. It only varies the levers movement and does not allow direct adjustment of the position the brake pistons relative to the brake disk.

If you want a brake with an actual bite point adjustment then go for SRAM Avid. But make sure you check the spec. It's only available from CR,XX,X0

Answer: 
You will require the 1700mm option which you will then need to have trimmed to the required length.

All rear brakes are sold with a large length hose to accommodate for all frame sizes and frame types.

Answer: 
Yes you can but only if every component is mounted on the bar using the standard clamp. The thing to be beared in mind is that Shimano/Sram don't always mix without problems.

Answer: 
These brakes are supplied as lever, hose and caliper; pre-bled and ready to install. They are post-mount calipers, so would run a 160mm rotor if fitted directly to a post mount 6" fork. Rotors and any applicable mount adaptors will need to be purchased separately.

Answer: 
They are ready for the rotor size specific to your frame (140mm at least).

Depending on adaptors, not available in the set (but to be purchased separately), you can go 140, 160 (165), 180 (183) or 200 (203) mm.

What colour hose do these brakes come with?

The only option listed as having 'Black Hose' is the front brake with the left-hand lever. I am looking to buy a pair of these brakes in black and would prefer black hoses. By the lack of information in the description i am led to believe all other options come with white hoses. Thanks.

Answer: 
I-Spec is a Shimano system for mounting their I-Spec specific 2013 onwards shifters directly to the brake lever. This means you only have one clamp on your handlebar rather than two.

B spec levers are compatible with both A and B type shifters whereas A type levers are only compatible with A type shifters.

Post mount is the new standard fitments of brake calipers. Various adaptors are available in order to mount the caliper correctly to most forks and frames.

Answer: 
I must admit I never heard of IS A. However...

IS (International Standard) is a mount that has 2 unthreaded bolt mounts, 51mm apart- you need different adaptors for front and rear- getting unpopular these days- the advantage is that you cannot strip any threads so it is hard to destroy it

Post Mount is a mount that has 2 threaded bolt mounts, 74mm apart- you need exactly the same adaptors for both ends- to be found on majority of bicycles these days- as an addition the immediate advantage of it is that you don't need the adaptor for 160mm rotor

For a quick reference- see the picture.
