Why We Like The Saint M820 Disc Brakes

The Saint M820 Disc Brakes may be the unsung heroes of Shimano's pro-proven DH groupset, having enjoyed success on the world stage with Gwin since the prototype stage. In fact, Shimano's initial unveiling of the group was delayed slightly so the Japanese company could continue refining it according to the feedback from elite racers like Gwin, and the result is a shorter Servo Wave arm that modulates better than its punchier predecessor, feeling more like XTR and allowing for more finesse while tempering speed to ensure you carry precisely as much momentum into techy corners and rock gardens as you want.

For some, the Saint brake's key difference with the less expensive Zee — tool-free lever adjustment — is an unnecessary luxury; however, for everyone from pros like Gwin to aggressive freeriders the world over, the ability to quickly dial stopping power is priceless. The brakes are finished with one-way bleeding for ease of servicing and ship with a reinforced brake hose that resists deforming to keep the brake feeling consistent throughout the run. The included brake levers are I-Spec B compatible.

  • Shimano’s most powerful disc brake for downhill, freeride, and enduro

  • Refined Servo Wave action for better modulation and control
  • Reshaped, textured lever for improved single-finger operation
  • 4-piston caliper for consistently powerful braking on long descents
  • Tool-free lever reach allows quick on-trail adjustments
  • One-way bleeding for ease of servicing and clean bleeds
  • Reinforced hose resists deforming for consistent feel throughout ride

Expensive But Worth It

I've used it several times

These have to be some of the most powerful brakes on the planet. Tons of power, and still have modulation. Use the metallic pads for all out power, put in some resin pads when you need a little more control.

Strong Stoppers

Not the best modulation, but its tough to beat the sheer power of Saint brakes. If you want to go fast, you've gotta have confidence that you can eventually slow down and these will give you exactly that. Easy to bleed, strong, and reliable performance makes these my recommendation for your DH bike.

Shimano Saint Brakes

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Recently upgraded from XT brakes to Saints on my Sworks Demo 8. My XT's were getting a little underpowered with what i'm doing so I felt like it was time for a change. There is a huge performance gain with these brakes! I don't get brake fade any more on the steep downhill sections, and I love the on/off feel that these saints have. They are a little on heavy side compared to the XT's but with the quad pistons, you'll stop a lot better. I will be look at getting another set for one of my other bikes that I have. Overall these brakes are awesome and would recommend them to any downhiller/freerider.
