    Andi bolted a pair of the Shimano SLX M7120 4 Pot brakes to a heavy eMTB and pointed it downhill to see if these mid-range stoppers are up to the job. …

    Good review – not sure when £154.99 became pennies – I must be getting old.

    Was thinking much the same go be honest, seems quite a lot for som mid-range stoppers.

    Realistically nobody is paying £154.99 each for these.

    You can have the full set for 170 Euro

    @honourablegeorge BARGAIN!!! But that’s only 1 x 4 pot calliper.

    @Andi – I’d settle for a 2 pot on the rear, I still am yet to be convinced I would need a 4 pot (or a disc larger than 180mm) on the rear.


    @honourablegeorge
    – that’s a much better price.

    Always been a Shimano man. None of this trendy SRAM nonsense. Got these 4-pot brakes on my Spectral, they are over-the-bars powerful, more reliable than a wood burning stove and they look sweet too. Never had an issue with the bite point either. Can’t get them to fade, even without the Ice-Tech pads and rotors.

    @Andi Sykes – Didn’t spot that – they have the full 4-pot set for a little more

    These came stock on my Ripmo AF SLX build.
    I was initially planning to replace them with a set of Saints from my other bike. I’m now a few hundred miles in and am sticking with the SLX – equally powerful as the Saints and absolutely no problem with bite point so far. The new lever design is sturdy – had a run-in with a tree lately and the lever took it without problems.
    The only thing that is annoying the hell out of me is the rattling noise coming from the new IceTech pads. The fins seem to be just a little bit longer and are rattling back and forth ever so slightly touching the caliper. I preyed open the spring which helped a bit, but you still hear them once the trail gets rough.

    Ronseal brakes, then! Can you run these with SRAM Centreline rotors?
