It's hard to overlook the simplicity and mechanical advantage of V-brakes. And if anybody knows this, it's definitely Shimano. That's why they've taken their Deore XT V-brakes and improved their looks, shaved off some weight and incorporated the proven performance of the Linear Response System. Does reliable braking get any easier than this? Nope.
Super-lightweight aluminum design maximizes strength, stiffness and offers you a weight savings of 152g over the previous XT model!
Linear Response System reduces braking friction and delivers responsive and controlled stopping power
