    • Shimano XTR Race M985 Disc Brake

  • Shimano XTR Race Disc Brakes M985

    Underpowered brakes lead to defensive riding technique and, ultimately, to slower lap times. Enter the new XTR Race brake, which encourages racers to attack technical downhill sections with confidence, leaving the competition squealing and squawking in the dust.

    How? First off, they produce 110 percent of the power of their predecessors while shedding precious grams at the same time, so they’re as viable a race-bike pick as ever. Throw in ergonomically re-engineered lever pivots and XTR Race lays on that power with single-finger effort.

    But power is pointless if it can't be maintained. Heat build-up is the enemy of any brake system, stock aluminium-backed brake pads and the industry's first full ceramic caliper piston all help dump heat and maintain consistent power.

    The key factor for racers is confidence—the confidence to win, and the confidence to lay off the brakes, knowing they'll be there when they're needed, every time

    With ten percent more power than the previous XTR brake, the sleek new XTR Race lever has been ergonomically redesigned for a versatile fit on the handlebars, superior feel at the fingertips and unsurpassed function on the race course. When coupled with the XTR Race lever, the new forged one-piece M985 caliper delivers a balance of light weight and power that resists performance-sapping heat better than ever before thanks to an industry-first full-ceramic piston.
