SHIMANO Deore XT disc brake 4-piston BL-M8100 + BR-M8120 | rear wheel
Probably the best and most versatile brake from Shimano is also becoming a pioneer in its class in the M8120 version. Due to the wide range of applications and the reliability, it is the first choice for many bikers.
Thanks to Servo Wave technology, the brake shines with quick response and a very easy to control pressure point. Bleeding is very easy using one-way bleeding, but is usually only necessary when shortening the brake line. The new arrangement of the clamp gives you some space on the handlebars, for example for remote levers. In addition, the rigidity could be significantly increased.
The ergonomically shaped levers are easy to operate with one or two fingers and can be adjusted within reach without tools. The Shimano shift levers with I-Spec EV mount can be attached to the brake levers to save the additional clamp for the levers.
The Deore XT caliper is the solution to all braking problems. The 4-piston version packs a punch, but can be dosed very precisely in combination with the BL-M8100 brake lever. The construction is designed for rapid heat dissipation. This can be further supported by using ICE-Tech brake pads with cooling fins. This means that longer descents in the high mountains are a safe bet.
The attachment is very easy thanks to the post mount and maintenance is not rocket science with the one-way bleeding system.
