SHIMANO XT questions

Hi everyone,

I am new to the world of mountain biking brakes and am considering some 2014 Shimano XTs. When I look in the websites, I find there are BR-M785, BL-M785... I am confused. Can someone please explain the difference? Also, I'd like to know what rotors should I use for my single suspension Trek 29er on which I plan to install the brakes.
Best and THANKYOU!

JMR

Welcome to BF! It’d probably be more productive for you to ask your questions in the Bicycle Mechanics forum. You’ll reach a bigger audience in that area. Good luck with it.
