Shimano Dura-Ace BR-7900 Brakes - Front or Rear
When it comes to braking performance, you'd be hard pressed to find a pair of brakes with better modulation and braking control than Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 brakes. In fact, they've become something of an industry standard, and all other brakes are compared against them. With an enhanced brake arch and spring tension adapter, they offer improved modulation and power, especially paired with long pull Super SLR levers. The stock brake pads provide double the braking power in wet conditions, and set the bar for excellence in dry conditions.
  • Enhanced brake arch proportion and spring tension adjuster and adjustable toe-in give you precise braking action
  • Stock brake pads provide double the braking power in wet conditions and greatly improves it in dry conditions
  • Cable stop is lowered reducing cable drag and improving how the cable is routed
  • The barrel adjuster is bigger than previous models making it easier for on-the-fly adjustment
  • Titanium screws reduce weight

    Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace BR-7900 Brakes - Front or Rear:

    I was surprised to find that these brakes actually made my bike faster. Hmmm. Upon further inspection, I found that I had mounted them backwards. I have a rudimentary knowledge of physics, but this error, somehow, transformed my bike into a sort of perpetual motion machine, which is cool, but now I can't stop.
    Once I got that figured out and re-installed correctly, the world was good again. Actually, nice brakes that replaced Ultegras that wore out. These look good and stop well at a good price.

      Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace BR-7900 Brakes - Front or Rear:

      I just installed new wider rims (26mm) and my old weightweenie KCNC brakes wouldn't open wide enough to fit the rim. So, I purchased these brakes and they fit wider rims with plenty to spare. I have to say that the gripping force is outstanding and work great with my new carbon rims. Oh and they are extremely smooth to operate.

        DuraAce is top-of-the-line and at Nashbar's Sunday Specials price I jumped at the opportunity. The brakes are lightweight and have titanium hardware which will not rust.

          I got these brakes when Nashbar had them on a Sunday 20% off special. Ultegras or 105s would have been fine for my Argon 18 build, but DuraAce at Nashbar's price was too tempting to pass up. They are light and the titanium will not rust.

            Purchased these to replace the original brakes that were bent. I didn't realise the difference between good brakes and cheap ones until now. Matched with 7900 levers these Dura Ace brakes not only slow you down and stop better but they feel really good doing it. They are definately worth every penny I spent for them!!!

              Comments about Shimano Dura-Ace BR-7900 Brakes - Front or Rear:

              What can I say. Shimano Dura-Ace 7900 calipers are simply one of if not the best performing brake sets one can buy, withstanding the new 9000 series. At Nashbar's pricing how can you not own a set of these??? How many tour victories and stages have been won with these exact brakes? Need I say more?
