SHIMANO Deore XT disc brake 4-piston BL-M8100 + BR-M8120 | set

The best and most versatile brake from Shimano is also a pioneer in its class in the M8120 version. Thanks to its wide range of uses and reliability, it is the first choice for many bikers.


Thanks to Servo Wave technology, the brakes shine with their quick response and a very easy to dose pressure point. Bleeding is child's play with one-way bleeding, but is usually only necessary when the brake line is shortened. The new arrangement of the clamp provides some space on the handlebar, for example for remote levers. In addition, the rigidity could be increased significantly.
The ergonomically shaped levers can be easily operated with one or two fingers and the reach can be adjusted without tools. The Shimano shift levers with I-Spec EV mount attached to the brake levers to save the additional clamp for the levers.


The 4-piston Deore XT brake caliper is the solution to all braking problems. It grabs brutally, 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 makes longer descents in the high mountains a safe bet.
The installation is very easy thanks to the Postmount mount and the maintenance is not rocket science with the already mentioned one-way bleeding system.
