Shimano's Ultegra BR-R8010 Direct Mount Brake features stealthy styling and aluminum construction for durability and lightness. The direct mount design eliminates unnecessary parts, reduces weight, and enhances overall ergonomics. The improved outer cable stop position helps minimize cable routing friction while the optimized brake arch proportions facilitate responsiveness and power. For easy customization, the cartridge brake shoes are angle-adjustable and their cartridge design makes for simple pad replacement. Thanks to wider clearance, the BR-R8010 Direct Mount Brake can accommodate wider rims and larger tires, up to 28mm.

Solid Option with comparable pull to dura-ace

Ultegra direct mount (chain stay) brakes aren't all that amazing as far as performance goes but that is more down to the placement on the bike than the brake unit itself. It's as good as dura-ace in response and power but at half the price (or less) and only a minimal weight penalty it's a true value for money option.

Dramatic improvement over the stock brakes on my Domane.

Power and feel are much improved over the house brand brakes on my Trek Domane.

Good upgrade

I like the precise nature of the rigid fixation to the fork. This alleviates the occasional deviations seen with the single pivot point of its predecessor. Unfortunately, it is still winter in Massachusetts and I havent ridden with them yet.
