Description

Description

These Shimano XT M8100 disc brakes are light, reliable, and give you excellent stopping power in all conditions. The brake pads are smaller compared to the XT M8000 brakes. This reduces the weight without reducing stopping power. These brakes are also equipped with Shimano's I-Spec EV mounting, with which the position of the brake lever and shifter can be adjusted as desired. On the brake handle you can personalise the distance between brake lever and handlebar. With these brakes you can blast through the forest in a position that is ideal for you!

Please note when purchasing this product: This product has been designed in accordance with Dutch standards. In the Netherlands it is customary to mount the front brake on the left and the rear brake on the right. This differs from the British standard, where the front brake is mounted on the right and the rear brake on the left.

Technology

Totally customisable fit thanks to I-Spec EV
These Shimano XT M8100 disc brakes can be set up exactly as you like. Shimano's I-Spec EV makes it possible to adjust the brake lever and shifter position. An additional advantage is that you need only one clamp to mount the shifters and brake levers. Distance between the lever and the bars can also be personalised.

Outstanding braking power and modulation thanks to the Servo-Wave Technology
These Shimano XT M8100 disc brakes have good braking power and modulation, which is achieved by Shimano's Servo Wave technology. How it works is that, in the beginning of the braking phase, the pistons move towards the disc more quickly than they do when the brake pads are closer to the disc. This results in better modulation and increased control.

Good heat dissipation thanks to Ice-Technology
Shimano's Ice-Technology achieves good heat dissipation so your brake pads overheat less quickly. For this reason the brake pads feature cooling fins.For optimum performance Shimano recommends using XTR, XT or SLX discs.

No air bubbles due to the one-way bleeding
Shimano XT M8100 brakes have optimized brake fluid flow thanks to one-way ventilation, which prevents air from getting trapped in the hydraulic system. This not only improves the braking power, but also makes clean, problem-free bleeding possible.

Compatibility

Brake caliper adapters
If you're changing from a different brand of brakes or want to mount a different size disc, you'll need an adapter between the frame and the caliper. You can find these adapters here.

Prima maar je moet wel erbij iets hebben

- Patrick 25 May 2021

Zonder handleiding moet ik even rondstruinen op het internet. De kabel is langer dus je hebt een speciale kabelkniptang nodig. En er moet nog remvloeistof in, bleeding set erbij bestellen. Als je compleet hebt gaat dat vrij gemakkelijk

Pros & Cons

Betere dan de voorganger M8000
Gemakkelijk te monteren
bleeding set zit niet inbegrepen
Mis de handleiding

Progressif et fiable

- MaxiMac 16 February 2021

Les freins XT M8100 sont des freins progressifs et facile à régler. J'espère que la fiabilité sera supérieur à mes anciens XT (après 2 ans perte de pression dans l'étrier arrière)
