Shimano XTR M987 Disc Brake

Lightest ever Shimano hydraulic disc brake system. Shimano debuts its lightest hydraulic disc brake system ever to the XTR line. Race rated to match the power and control of the M985 Race brake while dropping weight by 40g per wheel, the M987 disc brake will surpass rider expectations for a lightweight brake. Shimano engineers incorporated the use of a magnesium caliper and master cylinder construction in the new XTR BR-M987 to drop weight while maintaining system stiffness and control by properly managing heat.

The new, lighter BL-M987 hydraulic disc brake lever lightens up thanks to carbon fiber lever blades and titanium fasteners. The BR-M987 caliper is compatible with ICE Technologies finned disc brake pads and the BL-M987 lever is I-spec compatible.

Features:

  • Fully bled Race brake that is light on weight and heavy on performance
  • Front fully bled lever and calliper comes without adapters or rotors giving you the freedom to customise and suit your bike
  • Recommended for use with Ice Tech FREEZA Centre-Lock rotors for optimum braking performance in a choice of 160, 180 and 203 mm
  • High power hose delivers power efficiently to the oversized 22mm ceramic pistons optimized for heat insulation, lightweight and stiffness
  • Opposed 2-piston design reduces pad wear increasing braking control
  • Super lightweight Magnesium mono body uses a forged one piece design that increases rigidity and reduces weight
  • Carbon 13 mm wide brake lever with textured finish for optimum strength, grip and lightweight
  • Titanium hardware for further weight saving
  • Ergonomic pivot position for efficient and powerful braking
  • Mineral oil brake fluid
  • Shim-less post style mounting system can be used with adapters
  • Hinged clamp and reach adjustment for quick installation and the perfect custom fit
  • 2nd generation I-spec-B-B compatible
  • Kit also contains sintered pads, plus spare olives and insert should you wish to adjust the length of the cuttable hoses
  • Hose length: 1000 mm

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by MOLTO LEGGERI MA PESSIMA FINITURA SUPERFICIALE sono moltoleggeri e potenti, ma già al secondo giorno di uso la vernice superficiale saltava in maniera impressionante!!! E in alcun punti la vernice mancava addirittura!!! Neanche freni molto più economici fanno la stessa cosa, su dei freni di tale livello e prezzo anche i particolari sono fondamentali 13 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by No question about it Absolutely outstanding performance. Lightweight and powerful while still having great control. Only thing is the stock bleed could be better. These are going on every bike I build in the future. 24 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bling stoppers I have a pair XTR brakes on one bike and XT on others. the XTs have just as good braking power but the XTR are lighter and clean up the cockpit. Braking feel is good for both with more bite that other brands. True one finger braking. XTR race does not have bite point adjustment found the XT and XTR trail brakes but I have not missed it. I fitted them myself, cutting and refitting the hose was easy and they did not need a bleed after. 30 May 2014

is this a single brake or a set

Hi, I need to get a complete set of brakes. Does this come as a front, or back set, or both? What do I need to order to get a complete set of levers, hoses and calipers/discs?

What size are the discs?

Thanks

Answer: 
These brakes (along with the majority of our brakes) are sold individually as lever, hose and caliper; pre-bled and ready to fit. Unless they are listed as a 'Pair' they are separate items for front and rear. Rotors and mount adaptors are not included as standard and so will need to be purchased separately according to your frame/ fork requirements.
If you need more help, you can drop us an email (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...) with the details of your bike frame, forks, hubs, riding style/ conditions and budget and we can walk you through some options.

Answer: 
They come with pads installed but not the finned pads that are in XT and XTR trail brakes. The finned pads do fit the XTR race brakes.
