Shimano MT-200


Build Quality










The Good

  • Excellent performance for the Money
  • Reliable in the Long Term
  • Easy to Install
  • Uses Common Brake Pad

The Bad

  • Kind of ugly

This is the second set of MT-200 brakes I have bought, and whether they are real Shimano or not is kinda up to question. However after 1 year of riding on them I can say that quality, longevity and performance has been good enough to highly recommend if you want to swap your bike over to disc brakes but don’t want to spend $100 – $300 doing it. These brakes perform well, are fairly sleek and easy to work on. It’s actually cheaper to replace the entire brake set than it is to get a bleed or cable extension done at a local shop! All that being said I’m very happy with this purchase and even over a year later I continue to use these brakes without issue.

Keep in mind that as these are cheap brakes, they are unboxed for shipping and only sent in a simple bubble mailer, so be sure to fully inspect the item for any flaws before installation and keep inspecting the brakes each ride to make sure they are still functional!
