Shimano XTR Race brake caliper BR-M9000 - optimised for racing use
The Shimano XTR Race BR-M9000 brake caliper was designed for Cross Country use, as it optimises the ratio between low weight and high performance. It is made of painted magnesium and comes with titanium bolts. Ice Technology ensures perfect heat control and a consistently high braking performance, which can also be modulated perfectly. Of course, this caliper also has the One Way Bleeding design, which simplifies bleeding. BR-M9000 has two ceramic pistons, a banjo line connection and is supplied with organic pads without cooling fins.

One-Way-Bleeding One-Way Bleeding is designed to quickly and easily prevent air from entering the hydraulic system. Shimano has optimised the brake fluid flow path throughout the system to prevent air bubbles from being trapped in the system. One way oil routing plus a funnel tool with mineral oil provides an easy and clean bleeding system.
Ice-Tech Fading of the brake during prolonged uninterrupted operation, e.g. downhill, impairs braking performance. Shimano has introduced brake rotors 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 encasing an aluminium core. It radiates heat better and reduces 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 lower weight. XTR, Saint-, XT, SLX and ZEE callipers are combined with oversized ceramic pistons to achieve light weight, high rigidity and optimised heat dissipation. Oversized pistons transfer the hydraulic power directly to the brake pad. A ceramic material is used to avoid heat transfer and ensure constant, safe braking performance. This provides efficient brake force transmission without losses.
