Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
@PHeller: the cheaper models use metal and the more expensive ones; slx and above use a material similar to an elderly relatives finest tea set. Basically stare at it hard enough and will shatter into millions of pieces. As I said, it's an occurance which means I get a new set every 6 months W

Shimano Announces 4-Piston XT Brake Caliper
Zee is m640 and is a deore lever mated to a saint caliper and anodized a different colour without finned pads like saint. Zee and saint are both very good brakes but the saint will perform marginally better and due to the new lever design and gold detailing they look slightly more refined. For the record I personally love SHIMANO brakes but I've so far managed to break 3 sets of xt m8000's due to the silly phenolic pistons breaking into a million pieces. Nevertheless chain reaction have replaced them each time so I'll keep using them till i kill them and just replace them every year or so. Ps with the way the industry is going, there's no point spending vast amounts of time and effort on getting the best new part as they'll become obsolete in the next six months. Peace. W
