Shimano Deore BR-T610 series was one of the last V-brakes produced by Shimano. They are quite lightweight, firm and has replaceable cartridges.
Second hand or new old stock prices gone up, and they’re almost more expensive than brand new a decade ago. Approximately 175 grams a set, they are lighter than a medium grade hydraulic disc brakes when combined with relatively light brake levers.
I used them more than a year, and they perform stunningly well, especially compared to my current Deore hydraulic setup.
