Fits Shimano R8000 Ultegra

I've been cycling since the 80s so it was a novelty to find that I could just replace brake friction surfaces on my Litespeed. Everything used to be vulcanized together. In any case Shimano hasn't changed the shape of the pads in a while so they should fit your application too.

Worked well, wore out quick

While these lasted they were great, but they wore out quick. I was using them on aluminum rims with a ceramic coating - these typically wear out pads quickly. It only took a couple weeks for these to be unusable though.

nice controlled stops and don't melt in wet weather

These shoes came standard with the newest 9000 DuraAce brake calipers. Between the 9000 levers, calipers and pads, the braking is amazing, both in terms of modulation, stopping power and leverageforce needed to stop quickly. These pads are backwards compatible with many Shimano brakes (including my older 7700 DuraAce calipers) so I installed them on a different bike that has all 7700 components. The stopping grip is improved but still not nearly as good overall as with the DA 9000 leverscalipersshoes. Also, the previous DuraAce pads seemed to melt in wet weather and leave a black residue all over everything, these BR-9000 pads do not, and they seem much more wear resistant and durable as well.

I can stop again!

Just spent a few minutes replacing both front and rear pads, after 8000 and 4000 miles respectively. I had started noticing that my stopping was weak and would fade - not good. These pads are great. Inexpensive, easy to install, and long wearing as they replaced the prior iteration of the same pads (although i probably should have changed them some miles back)

Huge improvement over previous D-A pads

These new D-A pads do not melt when wet and do not become impregnated with tiny pieces of metal from the rim or debris from the road, unlike the previous version of D-A brake pads. I was always picking out stuff with an awl before and using fine grit sandpaper to finish the pad surface - no more. The new pads, coupled with the DA 9000 brake mechanisms result in much better stopping power whether wet or dry. I ordered and extra set to retrofit a different bike with older D-A mechanisms.

Excellent pads

I am entirely happy with Shimano's brake pads, and have replaced like for like several times on my bikes. These guys last 3000-4000 miles, are 100% reliable and predictable, work pretty well in the rain, and don't squeak. There is a little break in period, perhaps 50-100 miles when they seem less grippy than what they replaced, but then pretty quickly wear in.

Super easy to change out.

Very Effective

I use these with 105 brakes and they work beautifully, I have no trouble stopping even when going 35 mph or faster downhill. I usually only ride in dry conditions so I can't comment on their performance in the rain.
