The XT brake lever BL-M8000 by Shimano gives you clear feedback
The Shimano XT brake lever BL-M8000 contributes a lot to the powerful and even performance of your XT brake.
Thanks to revised Servo Wave technology, the lever travel is optimally converted into braking performance, whereby you as the rider receive clear feedback. With its slim design, the BL-M8000 takes up very little space - an effect that can be further enhanced by the integrative mounting of a compatible I-Spec II shifter. The reach can be adjusted without tools and the contact point can also be adjusted.

The Servo Wave brake lever takes up a lot of braking distance at the beginning of its movement so that the pads can be guided to the brake rotor with short lever travel. After the brake pads has been applied, the power transmission factor increases rapidly. The greater part of the lever travel is thus still available to increase the braking force and to modulated it more precisely.
The XT M8000 levers are compatible with the I-Spec II system, which allows the shift and brake levers to be mounted on the handlebars with just one clamp, giving more freedom in cockpit design, saving weight and improving ergonomics through a wide range of adjustment options. Simple assembly with narrow brake lever clamp. More space on the handlebars and a tidy look. Maximum vertical adjustment range: 15°, maximum horizontal adjustment range: 12 mm. I-Spec II brakes are not compatible with I-Spec EV, I-Spec and I-Spec B shifters (and vice versa).
