Shimano BR-MT420 disc brake - with strong 4-piston caliper


The Shimano BR-MT420 disc brake gives you full braking power for Enduro use thanks to its 4-piston brake caliper. On the lever side, it is characterised by a 2-finger brake lever whose reach can be adjusted by a bolt. The brake lever is mounted to the handlebars with a split clamp, which also allows the combination with a matching I-Spec EV shifter. Funnel bleeding and One-Way Bleeding technology, which prevents air bubbles from remaining in the caliper, make maintenance easier. As a J-Kit, this brake is delivered in such a way that you can easily mount it, even if the brake hose is routed inside your bike.

Technology:

I-Spec EV
I-Spec EV describes a variant of the connection between brake lever and shift lever on Shimano MTB derailleurs. This type of mounting allows the shifter to be adjusted both horizontally and vertically in relation to the brake lever, and ensures a tidy cockpit by reducing the number of clamps required. Compared to I-Spec and I-Spec II, I-Spec EV offers a much wider adjustment range. 14 mm adjustment range the longitudinal direction and up to 60° rotation allow an optimal ergonomic adjustment to your riding style, your sitting position and your anatomy.

One-Way Bleeding
One Way Bleeding is a technique used on Shimano calipers that facilitates brake bleeding. The hose routing has been optimised so that no air bubbles remain in the brake calliper. In combination with the funnel, the brake can be bled cleanly and easily.

J-Kit
J-Kit is a simple line connection system for hydraulic brakes from Shimano, so that you can install your brakes quickly and easily. The brake hose does not come connected to the brake to facilitate routing of the hose in the frame. The brake hose is already filled with oil in the J-Kit and sealed with a thin membrane. There is a small pin in the J-Kit brake lever that pierces this diaphragm during assembly to allow oil to flow.
