XTR BL-M9120 Disc Brake by Shimano
If you follow mountain bike news, then you already know well about Shimano's leap into the future with its new 12-speed groupset, and with the beefier cassette and gear range, there's no doubt that you'll want a shiny new brakeset to go along with your setup. In years past we knew Shimano's XTR brakes by their "Trail" and "Race" designations which have been done away with this year, and to keep things simple, we'll say that the new XTR BL-M9120 follows the line of evolution from the 9020 Trail brake from before, but with some major improvements, like quicker brake engagement with shorter free stroke, and increased stiffness over the 9000 series, even under high temperatures. The XTR BL-M9120 is stocked with all of the bells and whistles we want for enduro riding and multi-day peak-to-peak epics, like Servo Wave for lever adjustability, an updated brake lever shape that's more comfortable for 2-finger braking.

It employs a mounting bolt that increases stiffness and power, to improve speed and reliability in your braking. They feature Ice Tech radiator pads and insulated pistons that continue Shimano's prowess in heat dissipation, aiming to all but eliminate heat as an issue on long, steep descents that require more braking than no...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
