Shimano XTR Enduro brake caliper BR-M9120 - with Ice-Tech for hard trail use
The XTR Enduro BR-M9120 brake caliper by Shimano has been specially developed for use in Trail and Enduro riding. In contrast to the BR-M9100, it has four ceramic pistons and the Ice-Tech design, which guarantees perfect heat management and stable braking performance even under extreme stress. BR-M9120 is 10% more powerful than its predecessor and 8% stiffer. The One Way Bleeding function allows a simple and safe bleeding process to be carried out. An organic pad with cooling fins and a pair of light titanium bolts are supplied.

One-Way-Bleeding was developed for quick and easy prevention of air in Shimano's hydraulic system. They have streamlined the oil route throughout the system to prevent air bubbles from being captured in the system.
One way oil routing plus a funnel tool with mineral oil provides an easy and clean bleeding system.
Brake fading during prolonged uninterrupted operation, e.g. downhill, impairs braking performance. Shimano has introduced brake discs and pads with Ice-Tech technology to create a cooling technology for consistently high braking performance. The brake rotor has a three-layer stainless steel sandwich structure on the outside around an aluminium core. It radiates heat better and reduces a surface temperature from 400° C to 300° C, for example. The brake pads also have optional cooling fins. The design of the rotor in combination with the cooling fins results in a longer service life of the pads, less braking noise, less fading and a lower weight.
XTR, Saint, Deore XT, SLX, Zee, Deore LX calipers are bundled with Ice Technology pistons in order to achieve optimized lightweight, high rigidity and heat dissipation. Oversized pistons transfer hydraulic power directly to the brake pad, and ceramic material is used to avoid heat transfer for constant stable braking, providing efficient stopping power transfer without loss.
