BR-M975 Disc Brake:
Shimano’s new disc brake calipers retain Shimano’s signature control through superior modulation. The BR-M975 retains an opposed two-piston design while reducing weight:
• Single forged Mono-body construction:
The one-piece design is more compact and very stiff which results in a precise and efficient disc brake design.
• Titanium back plate:
The titanium back plate on the new XTR brake pads are 12 grams lighter than current steel pads. Durability in the pad is also improved by 50%.
• Caliper options:
Post mount calipers (BR-M975-P) can be adapted to any rotor size with the use of post mount adapters.
Use international standard calipers for the ultimate in weight savings to achieve the following rotor choices: 160mm/180mm for the front or 160mm/140mm for the rear.
BL-M975: Hydraulic Disc Brake Lever
As Shimano’s first XTR branded disc brake lever, the new BL-M975 is Shimano’s lightest disc brake lever set at 194grams.
With its compact design, you are free to choose from the wide variety of handlebars on the market. Whether you are using riser bars or narrow flat bars, handlebar interference with the brake hose is not an issue.
• New design:
The master cylinder is perpendicular to the handlebar which allows the hose to exit at an inward angle for zero interference regardless of handlebar type. Improved cylinder mechanism contributes in smoother modulation.
• Upgraded Pivot:
An enlarged pivot using higher grade materials helps create a smooth and consistent lever feel.
• Textured Brake Lever:
The brake lever is sand blasted then anodized to create the subtle texture which increases grip.
• Aluminum master cylinder cover plate:
Features the signature “X” design and double anodized XTR logo.
