Shimano Zee M640 Disc Brake

New Zee hydraulic disc brake systems are gravity rated with a Servo-Wave brake lever and new 4-piston ceramic disc brake caliper. System stiffness is tuned using Shimano’s high-power hose and shorter lever blade while ergonomics are perfected with a new pivot location and dimpled surface. ICE Tech brake pad and rotor options reduce heat in the system and maintain performance on the longest descents.

Shimano introduces Zee, a new line of gravity components that are an ideal starting point for aggressive riders and racers. Zee is the gateway gravity component line that allows riders to get on board with Shimano’s gravity program and experience premium new component technologies at a price they can afford.

PinkBike Shimano Zee Brakes Review:
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?

Features:

  • Dual diameter, four ceramic piston equipped caliper
  • Short, textured lever blades
  • Mineral oil
  • Weight: 306 grams (front brake, caliper and hose without mounting hardware).

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent brakes. performs well as expected upgraded to these from SLX m665 brakes and experienced braking power like never before(m665s are by no means weak). initially was worried about 4pot brakes being too on/off or aggressive and not being used to the new shimano shorter levers but it has been very intuitive on the first ride and modulation is great the enormous braking power is easier to control than i thought. 14 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Отличный продукт Пришли тормоза с левой ручкой на задний калипер и с правой ручкой на передний. Пришлось переставить ручки местами и заодно укоротить гидролинию. Перепрокачка и укорачивание прошли довольно легко. Стоят они у меня с ротором 203мм спереди и 160мм сзади (поверьте - 160 сзади более чем достаточно). Роторы взял Shimano SM-RT86. В такой комплектации работают просто прекрасно. Заблокировать колесо очень легко, достаточно легкого нажатия на ручку. Для максимально быстрого торможения без блокировки достаточно легонько нажать на ручку. Модуляция превосходная. Zee очень сильно отличаются от моих предыдущих механических тормозов Shimano и бюджетных гидравлических тормозов другой фирмы. Для обоих нужно было со всей силы нажимать на ручку для блокировки колеса. Однако нужно быть осторожным при пересадке со старых тормозов на Zee - с непривычки можно перелететь через руль. 28 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb product These things are pretty much perfect. I have no more to say without winging unnecessarily, but apparently my first sentence is too short for a review. 24 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very powerfull, Shame about the factory bleed The brakes themselves are extremely powerful and have excellent modulation but the factory bleed lets them down hugely, they were very spongy out of the box until I bled them. 03 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by amazing for the price these are amazing powerful brakes. would reccommend these brakes to anyone looking for a great set of brakes at a reasonable price 28 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Who needs Saint? Bought these brakes because saints are too expensive, and having now used these and saints i don't know why anyone would spend more on the saints??...to have tool free reach adjustment? You don't need it. The stopping power is equal to that of the saints and these have a lot more modulation. If you're a dh/freerider hook these up with some 203 rotors and you will NOT be disappointed. Hope this was helpful :) 10 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best I've ridden! These brakes are so smooth. The modulation is amazing. They are extremely powerful, while still allowing you to make the finest adjustment to braking force. Braking becomes very intuitive to the point that you never worry about locking up your wheel, unless you want to. For those who complain about excessive lever throw, the free lever throw is actually no more than any other brake. It's from the point at which the pads first contact, to the point that the wheel locks up, that there is excess lever throw. This is good, not bad! That's what gives them the intuitive feel and wide range of braking force. You can't choose more modulation without more lever movement, unless someone invents power assisted bicycle brakes. 07 December 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by good brake when it works had 2 of these now, both have had seal failures. until they give in they are superb, awesome stopping power with great feel. 25 November 2013

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.

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
