2021 Trek Marlin 6 Brake upgrade

1986 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DachshundBiker
Hey, I am fairly new to mountain biking. Bought a Trek Marlin 6 about 3 months ago but find the rear brake lacking as I am a fairly large guy. I would like to upgrade the rear brakes but don't need to go crazy. Where can I find some options? Any suggestions?

Any Shimano 2 piston brakes like the BR-M6100 is going to be great. I would upgrade front and back because when braking hard you should used around 60% front brakes and 40% rear. If you are already using your front brakes properly and you find that your rear brake don't have any power it may be a sign of contamination.
