Product Details

Riding comfortably at white-knuckle speeds requires an unconscious, intuitive confidence in your machine. It requires knowing that whatever conditions you come across, your brakes will be ready and able to deliver reliable control in any situation. Say hello to the XT M8000 Brakes, and say goodbye to compromise. The integration of Servo-Wave brake-boosting technology into XT brakes delivers gobs of lightweight stopping power.

Where the M8000 steps up from the already industry-standard BR-M785B is through its upgraded, integrated master cylinder which sports a sleeker look, saves weight and frees up valuable handlebar real estate. It also gains a beautiful black finish that will upgrade the look of any bike.
With ceramic pistons to increase power, reduce vibrations and shed performance-sapping heat, when coupled with innovative IceTech aluminum-core rotors (sold separately) to even further keep heat buildup at bay, the XT BR-M8000 brakes maintain cool, quiet performance under fire.

Features:
  • Power level is specifically tuned for trail riding
  • Servo Wave modulated levers offer high power and short stroke by varying pad speed throughout the lever stroke
  • Integrated master cylinder is lighter, cleaner and more durable
  • Refined Servo Wave for improved feel and feedback, improved adjustability
  • Narrow clamp band offers increased positional adjustment
  • Free stroke and tool-free reach adjust
  • Ceramic pistons for maximum heat insulation
Specifications:
  • Model Number: BR-M8000

  • Pair of brakes pre bled and ready to go
    I don't really know what you can say.

    They come ready to setup on your bike. The tube lengths are plenty long enough for most bikes.
    They work.
    They have tooless adjustment for reach.

    They look cool.

    They make your bike stop.

  • Shimano Reliability
    I needed brakes for some custom builds. The XT M8000 are as close to plug & play as you can get.

    Both lines required trimming to suit. Spare olives and barbs are included with each kit.

    Currently running XT M8000 on four bikes without any hassles.

    Great brakes at a great price.

    Super service from Torpedo7 made the purchase a pleasure!

  • Awesome power, adjustment and feel
    Great upgrade for your Bike, I looked at Shimano STX, XT, Dee and Saint to replace my Hayes 9, all the reviews pointed to XT. There was some confusion on what free stroke does but again the internet had a good explanation. I am running a 203mm rotor on the front and 180mm rear rotor on an All Mountain bike and have tons of power, good modulation and excellent adjustment for my hand position. Easy to install so I Highly recommend.....

  • Transformed my bike
    Love this brake upgrade from a wired disc brake. Light weight with smooth solid braking. This has transformed the feel of my bike.

  • Well priced .
    Good stopping power and robust construction. Poor manual.

  • Great stopping power
    Fitted these to my Canondale Fatty, mated with the 160 and 180mm ICE rotors - I'm not a little bloke, but these have great stopping power and only needing two fingers a big bonus for control.

  • Great product,Awesome value
    As always another great deal from Torpedo 7.
    I brought a new bike recently but they only had Deore 180f/160r and used them on first ride on bike.They handled as expected.
    Replaced these brakes for XT M8000 180f/180r with icetech rotors and used for next ride.
    After a quick bedding in, these brakes are the shizz!!!!
    Easy to install. Highly recommended.
    Well worth spending an extra $400 for new brakes and rotors to get a top quality brake.

  • Great stoppers
    Replaced a different brand of brakes after a stack, these are much better. Great lever, great stopping power and super easy for a bush mechanic to bleed. No dramas with nasty car brake fluid either!

  • Seriously Good Upgrade
    Upgraded the Deore brakes on a Specialized Stumpy, surprised at the improvement in power & feel in such a compact package. Great brakes at an unbeatable price, especially with the Ice tech pads. Be prepared to shorten the hoses, the rear was WAY too long at 1700mm even on a large frame dually, but no dramas with spare parts in the box. Only the front brake came with the yellow bleed block.

  • XT M8000 Brakes upgrade on my 29er
    Upgraded my basic front & rear M395 brakes. Went for XT as they cost about the same as the new SLX without finned pads & ~$15 more than the old SLX.
    Pros: Easy installation, bleed with Shimano kit. Improvement in braking power on my old disks; Needed double finger before. Greater clearance means no rubbing noise when disk / pads are wet. Looks great.
    Cons: None so far.
    Be careful where u buy them from. Unlike T7, some folks are selling the M8000 with the G02A resin pads; i.e without fins.

  • Great Brakes
    Smooth action, easy to install (I had to swap left and right levers to suit my Euro/Canadian riding style) this was done in 5 mins without the need for a brake bleed. Only had them for a fortnight, but braking down steep rock and loose trail was really strong and controllable. much better than my previous avid (i have had a few - really wanted Avids to be good including set up, simple brake pad exchange, limited need for bleeding etc...)

  • Great Feel!
    Just upgraded from M785 which I've been using over the past few years, these have a much better feel through the lever, braking confidence has never been better!!
