Radial master cylinder for more stopping power and improved control. Other features are the excellent brake-force modulation and an one-way-bleeding-system which allows easy service.
The opposed 2-piston design for high braking power with minimalistic, high rigidity construction. The brake can be used with G01S resin, G03S metal and F01A resin pads. Shimano recommends the use of SM-RT64 "Servo Wave" brake discs but the brake is also compatible with all other Shimano Centerlock brake discs like the SM-RT68.
The "Servo Wave" system helps to move the brake pads faster to the brake disc which results in faster brake engagement. Open clamp band with hinge construction for easy installation. The brake levers are I-spec certified, this allows mounting of I-spec shifting levers directly to the brake lever clip.
About Disc Brakes
Bicycle disc brakes consist of a metal disc attached to the wheel hub that rotates with the wheel. Brake calipers are attached to the frame or fork along with pads that squeeze together on the disc. The way it is attached to the bike will be either by IS (International Standard) which has two holes facing the disc or Post Mount, which has threads going into the fork. Disc brakes have been successfully used on motorbikes for decades, and are the principal choice there. The primary benefit of disc brakes is that they perform equally well in all conditions including water, mud and snow. This is due to their position closer to the hub and away from the ground and possible contaminants like water, which can coat and freeze on the rim in colder temperatures. The pads are usually made from metal sinters or an organic compound instead of rubber. Water acts as a lubricant to rubber but not metal, therefore disc brakes maintain their stopping power in wet conditions. They also avoid the problem that rim brakes have of wearing out the wheel rims, especially in muddy conditions, as well as the requirement that the rim be straight. Disc brakes offer improved modulation of braking power and generally require less finger effort to achieve the same braking power. The advantages of discs make them well-suited to steep, extended downhills through wet and muddy off-road terrain, common in freeride bicycle riding.

Magazine reviews for Shimano Deore M615 Disc Brake
Review from Bikeradar
Shimanoâ€™s latest Deore brake offers all the control and power you could need in a simple, ultra reliable, user friendly, ultra bargain package.
Whenever we asked for feedback on these brakes, the unanimous answer was that they were absolutely outstanding.
The calliper is a bit basic â€" with its fixed hose exit creating a big cable loop on some bikes â€" and itâ€™s not a light system either, but the stock organic pads last okay and sintered sets improve dirty weather durability extensively, as well as behaving better in hard and hot use situations.
The lever end is neatly workmanlike, with Shimanoâ€™s double-decker master cylinder and one-and-a-half-finger lever giving good feel. The hinged I-Spec mount means it syncs well with shifters/remotes. You can adjust the reach with an Allen key, and the funnel based bleed system is user friendly.
The cunning ServoWave cam moves the pads on to the rotor quickly and then increases power at the point of contact. The consistent modulation and control were praised by everyone whoâ€™s used the Deores. Rub-free calliper set-up is easy and reliability is fantastic.
The M615 is outstanding value, whether you only need the brake or the reasonably priced rotor and mount too. Check the numbers though â€" older Deore M575 brakes are wooden, glaze-prone and still lurking under some shop counters.
A big improvement on older Deore brakes
