What can I say... these are top spec brakes at a top spec price. I had to swap the hoses (being from a right hand front, left hand rear country!) but all the parts there included and it was as easy as can be! Couldn't be happier.
Great brakes, solid feel very powerful and great modulation. Only thing to note is that these came as left hand front and right hand rear (I was doing internal cabling anyway so it wasn`t a big deal to swap them over). Very fast delivery, less than a week to Australia
Fantastic brakes, work so well, amazing upgrade!
Was looking for an upgrade to my stock wheels. These look and feel so much smoother and although they have not been on my bike long they still look to run straight which could not be said about the wheels that came on my canondale after a few weeks.
Best bang for buck brakes. These are my 2nd xt brakes and they were perfect. Great modulation and stopping power.
Good set of brakes for the cost (sub 150 due to Merlin discounts) They don't have the same level of feeling as the Hope M4's they replaced as in the braking is a more binary affair on/off. Easy install and very swift setup. Cables were a bit long for my bike but I've left them as I don't want the faff of trimming them and going through bleeding them again. These brakes are not as good as the Hopes but they are considerably cheaper so better pound to performance rating. I haven't taken them on any trails yet but am hoping they will do very well.
Fantastic stopping power with one finger braking and great adjustability. Well worth the upgrade.
Changed over to these from previous model m785 and so far very impressed. A lot more lever feel and very much the same power without the on/off switch feel the older ones were known for. Can't beat it for all mountain/enduro riding at this price point
Great price for XT brakeset. Upgrade from Elixir 3 brakes. Quite easy to setup although had to get the setup instructions online.
Amazed by how powerful these are even with short short levers, and much cleaner looking than my old (very old) XT brakes.
Awesome brakes superb stopping power even for a big lad like me. Easy to fit but you may need to cut the hose down a little. Fantastic service from Merlin
Very good product for a very good price. Typical Shimano. Brakes are light and reactive. Switched to these from Guides because the Guides failed. Good modulation but not as good as Guides. Better lever feel. Needed reliability and nothing beats Shimano. Brakes to save my life not end it. Very good stopping power and predictable
Awesome do it all brakes, perfect for xc, trail and most enduro riding. Highly recommend
Excellent brakes. Easy to fit, short bedding period, and very powerful
Very nice. Plenty of length on the brake lines. Most people will need to trim them. I would recommend picking up a Shimano bleed kit if you don't have one already.
These are great new brakes. Nice modulation and good slim clamp on the bars. Best price online. Fast shipping for quality new Shimano gear. Thanks.
Incredible stopping performance! Highly recommend it. It needed to be bled and trimmed.
It was like this: I've been riding XTR brakes for years. Bought a new bike where the frame was top but the components were somewhere below SLX. Found those lacking to say the least so I switched to SLX in short order. Nice brakes SLX's but a bit of a lag and the power was not what I was used too. Decided to upgrade to the XT's out of a whim and switched the SLX to an old bike. Went out riding for the first time yesterday....wow, what a difference! the lack of power is NOT an issue, I can modulate with ease and they're quiet (to be fair that's a metallic vs resin issue). Where I was really happy with the XTR's, happy with the SLX, I'm back to really happy with these XT's, it's like coming home!
