Engineered specifically for XC racers, the Shimano XTR BR-M985 Race Hydraulic Disc Brake has 10% more braking power than the BR-M970, weighs 40g less than the BR-M985 Trail brake system and features a light and snappy lever return. Shorter, 13mm brake lever has a more efficient pivot location for a superior hand feel with smooth, yet powerful function. Integrated barrel reservoir design is compact and lightens the load even further while the high power hose delivers consistent performance. One-piece forged mount calipers with oversized ceramic pistons provide outstanding stopping force, stiffness, insulation and heat dissipation. One-way bleeding and improved oil routing is faster and cleaner than the competition. With one of the best power-to-weight ratios on the market, the Shimano XTR BR-985 Race Hydraulics Disc Brake is the choice of XC racers who demand low weight and unbeatable stopping action.
