    Deal on Shimano Zee Disc Brakes: $129/side @ BlueSkycycling

    Title says it all. Great deal on these. They are OEM so be sure to check your hose length needs before ordering.

    Can someone educate me on the differences between the Zee and the XT/SLX brakes that everyone are buying. Is there a clear winner? Why?

    The Zees are 4-piston compared to the XTR/XT/SLX/Deore models which are 2-piston. They're used more often in DH builds.

    Does 4-piston come with a penalty in feel/modulation or weight?

    ZEE are their lower end version of Saint, SLX are the lower end version of XT.

    If the Zee are comparable in braking power to the Saints, you'll only pay a weight penalty.

    I haven't installed mine yet so can't really comment on braking performance but the reviews are good. As far as weight...
