Hello! I have a new road bike coming with the new Shimano ST-R785 hydraulic disc brakes. It hunk the caliper is a re-branded XT. Does anyone know if I can use a XTR caliper with the the road brake levers?

Thanks

Yes, it is. Sven Nys used it in the winter.
Can't see much point in doing so, except if you're after 40-50 grams...
