SHIMANO Deore XT Disc Brake 4-Piston BL-M8100 + BR-M8120 | set
Probably the best and most versatile brake from Shimano is also 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 fast response and a very good pressure point. The bleeding is very easy by means of one-way bleeding, but is usually only necessary when shortening the brake line. The new arrangement of the clamp on the handlebars some space, for example, for remote lever won. In addition, the rigidity could be increased significantly.
The ergonomically shaped levers can be optimally operated with one or two fingers and adjusted within reach without tools. On the brake levers Shimano shifter with I-Spec EV can mount be fixed in order to save the additional bracket for the lever.
The 4-piston Deore XT caliper is the solution to all brake problems. It packs brute, but can be dosed very accurately in combination with the BL-M8100 brake lever. The construction is designed for fast heat dissipation. This can be further supported by the use of ICE-Tech brake pads with cooling fins. Thus, longer runs in the high mountains are a sure thing.
Thanks to the Postmount mount cultivation is extremely easy and maintenance is not rocket science with the already mentioned one-way-bleeding system.
