Shimano’s Ultegra BR-R8000 Brake Calipers are light yet rigid dual-pivot caliper brakes designed to enhance braking power. The brake arch structure is optimized for dialed control and the ergonomic positioning of the outer cable stop position alleviates friction in the cable routing. The brake shoes can be toed-in to custom specifications and the spring tension is adjustable as well, ensuring each rider’s individual needs are met. Equipped with wider clearance, these brake calipers can accommodate the ever expanding population of cyclists sporting wider rims and larger tires.

Great upgrade

Bought these as an upgrade that replaced the older version of my previous Ultegra brakes. Overall seem much better improvement and better stopping power than the older version. Also look better and almost looks the same as the dura ace but at a better price.

Effective upgrade from stock specialized (axis) brakes.

I purchased a used 2016 Roubaix that came with stock (Axis?) brakes and 105 components. Axis brakes worked except they kept reminding me about WWII and required super grip for steep drops. Since all my riding is either uphill or down (Big Island of Hawaii), I upgraded for that secure feeling that comes with Ultegra and a bargain price from BTD. They arrived on time, look great, and make going downhill almost a pleasure. They're not quite as nice as the disc brakes on my Sequoia, but they stop me when needed and look classy. From an old guy (69) trying to keep his heart beating on a budget. Enjoy

Compatibility Issues

Might have compatibly issues with Fork Wheels. The metal support arch was rubbing on my front tire. Very short height on the inside arch.

Better Brakes than stock

Replaced OEM Tekro calipers and much prefer the braking action, feel and looks. Install was straightforward, they do fit Conti GP 4 Season 28's. take your time adjusting them, and you will be rewarded with a firm, responsive feel and great stopping power.

The Ultegra is the 105 caliper with a stiffening frame added, not sure there's much difference, but given the minor costweight delta, the Ultegra seems worth it. And they look good.

Fantastic!

A big upgrade from the old 6800 brakes. It is the first time I can remember a noticeable upgrade in components!
