Shimano Brakes are some of the most consistent mountain bike brakes on the market. Possibly the most popular brakes you will find, these can be found on most stock bikes that you purchase at the bike shop. Shimano has 3 sets of brakes that are extremely durable, consistent and valued for the money. They are the SLX, XT and XTR brakes. The XTR brakes are the high end, race oriented set while the SLX are the budget friendly and nearly bomb proof version. You can find Shimano brakes at your local bike shop or on Amazon.com through the following link. http://amzn.to/15yiUkG Thank you to Chris from Cadence Cyclery in McKinney Texas for being our brake specialist and helping with this video.
