Downhill mountain bikes undergo some of the harshest treatment a pedal bike can be asked to endure. Shimano develop components made specifically for these taxing conditions, under the Saint name.
The Saint brakes are held in very high regard by riders everywhere. With reliable and controllable stopping power, and excellent resistance to fading, they're a favourite with DH racers.
A full range of drivetrain components, as well as the excellent Saint SPD pedals are also available.
