They're trusted, durable, powerful, and reliable--pretty much the holy grail of what is perhaps the most important component on your bike.

These are the best brakes I have ever felt. I highly recommend them. I switched from avid elixer 1 after the rear seized for no reason one day. The responsiveness of these brakes are unreal. Be careful getting use to them however. You might double eject over the handlebars. Amazing! I will only use these from now on.

These are some great breaks for the price. I switched to these from avid breaks because their bleed process is a joke. Honestly I went through two of their bleed kits and got leaks everywhere while trying to bleed. Installation was a breeze and match these with their ice tech rotors and it's game on. love the break lever length too.

The only reason that I gave this product 4 stars is due to value; I have noticed little to no difference in the performance of these brakes vs. the SLX line. So if you are not worried about a couple grams of weight and having a cotter pin instead of a screw for the brake pad retaining pin I would just go with those. That being said the brakes work very well. You can adjust the levers for position and also for free stroke. Also I have seen other reviews talking about having to take off handlebar grips to mount the levers, this is NOT necessary with these (release to open clamp for bars is a small recessed button that can be pushed with a large paper clip or other similar sized piece of metal). I HIGHLY recommend Shimano brakes over other brands due to the ease of bleeding them and replacing pads, everything is well-made and easy, just make sure that whenever you do anything with the brake fluid you remove the pads b/c just a little oil on them can ruin them. Upgrade your brakes today and save the squirrels!

I'm using this with an avid rotor until the ice tech one arrives, but it's already much more powerful than the juicy 3s I was using. The lever length is great, the brakes come on strong, but after a while on the trail you get used to it and can easily control your speed to varying degrees.

Considering the price, these are excellent! They are 10 classes over the Elixir 5 that came with my bike. I changed the rotors with IceTech from Shimano also and there was no more squealing, and no more vibrations. I find it easy to control the levers with only one finger. The modulation and power of these brakes gives me a lot more courage than before ..., maybe a little too much!

I bought a santa cruz blur xc bike a couple years ago. it came with avid elixir 5 brakes. they were absolutely horrible - squealing like an old train, and had to replace pads about 3 times in a year. after two seasons, I got enough, bought the shimano deore xt brakes, and threw out the avids in garbage. I could not be any happier with the shimanos.

Awesome brakes for the money. These brakes having amazing stopping power and are silent. I know every time that I hit the brakes these stop right away. I have used these in wet and dry environments. They were also super easy to install. Lines came pre-bled and the correct length. I was able to install these in about 10 minutes. I was amazed at the stopping power of these. I previously had the Avid Elixir 3 brakes, and these are much better and MUCH quieter. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I recently got sick of my old Magura Marta brakes that were constantly loosing pressure and were a pain to bleed.. So I decided to change them and went for the XT Shimano. I didn't want to go XTR as the price jump is impressive and I'm not sure the gain is that much.

I received both and put them on very quickly. There is basically nothing to do just hook them on, they are pre-bled.

Three things to be careful about:
1 - You have to remove your Grip in order to put them on, so if your grip cannot be removed easily, plan on changing them at the same time.
2 - You need to make sure you have the right sizing block on the frame. Depending on your disc size you may need an adapter. My rear magura was fixed on the frame by the side, the XT are from the top so I had to buy an adapter
3 - The lever is short which means you should place them between the grip and the shifter to have easy access to it. I did the reverse and my thumb keep hitting the switcher.

Once the brakes were one, the disc didn't touch the pad anymore, they break really well and I love them..
Really a good buy for the money.
