Shimano Zee M640 Disc Brake

The new Zee hydraulic disc brake system includes shorty style levers and a powerfull 4-piston brake caliper just like its big brother "Saint".

Features:

  • Servo Wave lever pivot
  • Shorty Levers
  • High rigidity ceramic pistons for heat insulation
  • Anti-slip dimpled lever blade
  • Resin Pads
  • Super stiff high-power 3-layer brake hose for a more consistent lever feel
  • One-Way Bleed for easy and clean servicing
  • 4 Piston caliper
  • Resin Brake Pads
  • Brake lever is I-Spec Compatible (SM-SL64..)
  • Brake hose part# SM-BH90-SLB

"With their consistent feel and trouble-free performance, Shimano's brakes have proven themselves time and time again. It's their Zee stoppers that really stand out in our minds, though, with them using the same four piston caliper and internals as the more expensive Saint setup, but forgoing both the tool free lever reach dial and the stroke adjust screw that doesn't seem to affect anything anyways. That means that they feel as if they could be used to slow down a runaway train if required to do so, and that they also sport the same great ergonomics that we've come to love from Shimano's brakes. Many of today's components feel as if they require near constant tinkering to keep working to their full potential, something that makes us really appreciate the trustworthy performance of the Zees. Isn't that how brakes should be?" - PinkBike Review

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Great brakes, misleading product description provided by CRC The brakes are great and like everyone says that have good power and good modulation. However, CRC's production description for this item is misleading, which says that the brakes come with both radiation pads and resin pads. As per the product description at the time of writing the review... - "Radiation fin pad with new metallic compound to improve control and consistency" - "Resin Brake Pads" The brakes DO NOT come with radiation fin metallic pads. These have to be ordered in addition http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/en/shimano-saint-m820-disc-brake-pads/rp-prod124951 11 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличные тормоза Заказал передний тормоз взамен гидравлики Doere, который вообще не тормозил. После старого тормоза стоп-кран ещё тот, но с очень хорошей модуляцией. По-началу надо привыкать к торможению. Также в комплекте пришли какие-то пластмаски на фото ниже, которым я не нашёл применение. 02 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievble stopping power for the price I have wanted to upgrade to a 4 pot caliper for a while now, what a purchase. It has taken a couple of rides to bed in and the factory bleed isn't great but once these slight issues are sorted, it's great. Takes some time adjusting from two pot stoppage but you won't look back once you've made the switch. I only bought a front as the rear won't make a whole lot of difference with slowing you down. But that's just my preference. 01 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Zee отличная альтернатива ! Поставил в замен Кодов , не пожалел. Легче, ручки удобнее. Тормозят как вкопанные ! 30 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super brakes Super brakes, I haven't found anything to complain about with these. They really are as good as the reviews say. 20 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by GREAT PRICE - SUPERB BRAKING POWER GOOD PRICE, REALLY GOOD BRAKES, STOPPING POWER FANTASTIC 15 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good braking power, but lever blade breaks of easily I used to use Magura Luis and Juicy 5. As far as braking power and modulation is concerned, ZEE are much better. But non of previous brakes ever broke. I do ride more technical trails when you often fall with low speed. It was dissapointing to walk down the hill with broken lever blade. 29 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product would recommend to anyone! I upgraded from avid code 5's and the improvement was massive. They have loads of power and in my opinion the same amount as saints. Perfect brakes for a downhiller with a budget! 24 July 2014

Речь о позиции "Rear - Left Hand Lever - 1700mm Hose - I-Spec B"
Возможно ли установить задний клипер в комплекте с левой ручкой на вилку(т.е. как Front) путём укорачивания гидролинии(Horse) или есть конструктивные особенности?
Если возможно, то выполняете ли вы работы по укорачиванию гидролинии?

Answer: 
Калиперы: что передний, что задний у Zee одинаковы. Укорачивать гидролинию очень легко, я это делал для обоих тормозов Zee. Разумеется перед этим требуется полный слив масла из тормоза; в комплекте должны идти оливка и штуцер для укорачивания. Почитайте в интернете инструкцию по прокачке и укорачиванию гидролинии и сможете легко это сделать сами.

Answer: 
I have tried using the finned brake pads from my XT M785 brakes on my new Zee brakes and I can confirm that they do not fit and are not compatible, as the shape is slightly different and the fixing bolt/pin hole does not line up with the hole on the caliper. The finned pads that are compatible with the Zee brakes are the Saint M820 finned pads http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ca/en/shimano-saint-m820-disc-brake-pads/rp-prod124951

Btw,as a side note: the pad fixing bolts from my XT M785 brakes do fit in the Zee brakes and so I have replaced the pin on both front and back Zee brakes. The fixing bolts work much better than the pin.

Can I switch hoses?

Hello there,

I am wondering if I can switch the hoses so the left lever for rear break and the right lever for front brake??
From what I saw on youtube shortening the hoses is very easy and wondering if I can also put it back on the other lever..

Regards,
Glafcos.

Answer: 
The Zee brakes will run up to a 203mm rotor size, as long as the appropriate mount adaptors are used. You can often mix and match mount adaptors from different brands, but for the quickest/ easiest fitting try to use same-brand adaptors

Hi guys, I'm confused, there are 4 options on the product page but not sure what the difference is between the 2 front and the 2 rear options, except one being more expensive than the other... the descriptions are exactly the same:

Rear - Left Hand Lever - 1700mm Hose - I-Spec B
Rear - Left Hand Lever - 1700mm Hose - I-Spec B

Front - Right Hand Lever - 1000mm Hose - I-Spec B
Front - Right Hand Lever - 1000mm Hose - I-Spec B
