We did say you’d be seeing a lot of Shimano on this list! This BR-T4000 Mountain Bike V-Brake is the first rim brake we’ve featured. V-brakes (Shimano’s trademarked name for this type of brake) are an evolved style of traditional caliper brakes. The T4000 is an X-type V-brake with pads, and has a 107mm arch size and a 16mm fixing bolt length. It’s made from aluminum and finished in black.

This mountain bike brake is reasonably priced, and has good stopping power. Not only that, but it’s simple to install, even by self-confessed amateurs, and the brake shoes are easy to position and tighten – and they don’t squeal. One online user does mention that you need a hex nut to adjust the brake pads, which is not included. If it’s a quality V-brake you’re after though, you can’t go far wrong with this one.
