These brakes perform extremely well. They were simple to install. And since Shimano uses mineral oil any need to bleed these brakes will be less of a headache than brakes I've had in the past. The XTs also have great modulation so I can apply as little or as much of the brakes as I want.

My first disc brakes were Shimano. They always worked. I "upgraded" to SRAM and was constantly frustrated. So now I have gone back to Shimano. The XT levers required zero setup. I shortened the lines to better fit my frame. This process was incredibly simple AND I did not have to bleed the system after shorteneing! The rotors are silent. My SRAM rotors constantly squealed. After a very brief burn in period these XT brakes are flawless. One finger modulation. Two finger full power stopping. Wet: they work. Dry: they work. Dirty: they work.

I've installed and bled 3 sets of these brakes and I'd say they are the best currently out there. Great stopping power, modulation, adjustability and killer looks.

Wow, Price Point finally has product reviews!!! Yeah, the brakes rock. Love me some Shimano. They are very precise and there isn't much modulation, with is fine with me. The XTR's seem to modulate a little more if you like that sort of thing. It's easy to slide the rear with XT, not as easy with XTR. Both are solid brakes thou. Another note: My LBS informed me that these brakes are NOT serviceable... I had to trash my old XT and get new ones when a part broke. But they lasted several years... very durable.

I've owned Avid Elixir CRs, Formula Oros, Hope Tech M4s and V2s, and the older M775 Shimanos. These are hands-down the best. Instant power and super strong. Almost too strong. If you want modulation, these probably aren't for you. If you want to know you're going to stop right away, get these. There's also almost no maintenance needed for Shimano brakes.
