These brackets convert the standard XT SL-M780 Rapidfire pods to the I-Spec mounting system enabling direct attachment to XT BL-M785 brake levers.
PLEASE NOTE: This is the old style ISMSL78P I-Spec bracket. These work with the original M785 XT brakes. If you have the newer M785-B brakes you have to use the newer I-spec bracket, Shimano part number: ISMSL78BP (notice the extra B in the part number). Price Point part number for ISMSL78BP "B version" is: 280 SHIIB4
Hello, I recently upgraded my 2012 Scott Scale 29er with a new Recon Fork, Easton Haven wheels and a full 2x10 XT setup with matching M785 brakes. I was on the fence about the I-spec brackets but bought them anyway to try them out. They really clean up handlebars and look awesome. I recommend them to anyone with a full xt groupset!
