    It may be an oem configuration.
    Email the seller and ask if the brakeset includes resin or Ice Tech pads and Ice Tech rotors.

    I suspect it's a mis-print or a regional variant. It should perform the same as the standard M785. Why not go try one out and see if you like it?
    Don't you hate it when a sentence doesn't end the way you think it octopus?

    The bike you link is solid. XT brakes are a solid system. Nice bike. Have fun.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    yeah i'm thinking that its just a different international model code, thats why i was asking if you were greek, because the bike seemed to be a euro brand, and i saw a lot of links to it being sold but they were all in greek. looks like a really nice bike though.

    I think those are the brakes i was talking about, but still not 100% sure. The name of the brakes i found on the internet (in lot of sites greek and foreign) are M7851.
