Brake Levers - Mountain - (long or short pull) - Shimano Deore XT, pair

Sold Out

Product Details


Shimano doesn't make very many rim brake levers anymore.  And while these may not look very exciting, they feel great and work even better.  Get 'em while you can before Shimano discontinues them and see for yourself.  They're an amazing value for a Deore XT level product.

For use with long pull, linear/V OR short pull cantilever / "road" caliper sidepull brakes; yay!  Just need to switch where the cable head sits inside the lever.

Cables and housing NOT included.

Clamp diameter is 22.2mm like all other Mt. bike type brake levers. Will Not work on Albastache bars or Drop type bars since those have a 23.8mm brake clamp diameter. This is not to be confused with stem clamp diameter which is a totally different thing.

Sold per pair.
