- PSA: XT M785 Brakes
Unless im reading it wrong, these are set Euro way, ie other way round and cant be flipped? I guess you can swap the hoses over though? “Front wheel brake: left brake lever” “Rear wheel brake: Features as described under item no. 1769766-2, but right brake lever” very cheap if its just a hose swap requiredPosted 6 years agohughjayteensMember

The main Thing you will notice between shimamo and hope brakes is when you pull the brake on with shimamo your bike comes to a stop
PMSL. To be honest, I’ve been really impressed with the Hope brakes – not as much power as the Elixirs I had before but enough to stop whenever I need to and massively more modulation and ‘feel’. Mainly looking at these as a potential weight saving exercise and given the pricing and the demand for used Hope stuff, it’ll probably be a free swap.Posted 6 years ago
eh? Xt’s are 63 euros. Pref that.
The old XT brakes had a single piece caliper, which means that when you compress the brakes your weakest point is the pads against the rotor.
With the new two piece caliper, the weakest point is the screws that hold the caliper together.
Also, do we have a definete on which pads come with the brakes?Posted 6 years ago

I bought a pair of SLX from Germany a few weeks back and they are the best brakes I’ve owned and used (including hope mono minis, 1st gen saints, M775 XTs)
They are more powerful and feel nicer than my M775 XTs. If you don’t need the free stroke adjustment get SLX
For info –
The SLX and XT calipers are the same (both have ceramic pistons)
I cannot tell they are not ‘one-piece’ in use
Swapping levers was easy
The lever is a lot shorter (I now run these outside my shifters)
The complete brakes are lighter than my M775 XTs
