Best XC disc brakes ever - Apr 02, 2014

These are by far the best brakes I've ever owned. Pretty to look at, simple, light and powerful. adjustable reach is nice. My feeling is that these are a bit less grabby than the XT brakes, which are also excellent. In other words, they modulate well despite having plenty of power. Best of all no squealing or noise.

Paired these XTR M985's with RT-86 rotors and couldn't be happier with the result. Fantastic braking feel that doesn't grab nor threaten to throw over bars like some of the other high-power brakes. Never heard them make a noise, just what I was looking for. These do have a lever position adjustment screw which requires an allen wrench to adjust. They don't have servo-wave (with it's own adjustment screw on the Trail version) which is why I bought them... I prefer the more linear modulation these vs. the Trail which is designed to become more powerful as the lever is pulled farther.
