Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper
Want some Dura-Ace brake action without a Dura-Ace price? Using Dura-Ace's pro-level technology with a very slight weight sacrifice, Shimano's Ultegra BR-6800 brakes use a symmetrical dual pivot design so that each arm travels the same amount when the lever is squeezed. Couple the resulting efficiency and superior modulation with Shimano's exclusive new pad compound, and the result is a powerful brake that won't grab, won't overslow at critical race moments, and will stop when you say stop.
  • BR-6800 has 10% more power in the caliper than their 6700 counterparts
  • equal tension to both arms equals predictable, smooth modulation
  • aesthetic makeover makes Ultegra look Dura-ace good

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

    Honestly, I can not tell any difference in the braking power of these versus the Axis 2.0 brakes that came standard with my Tarmac. I changed only because I wanted to have a full Ultegra component set on my bike. Four star rating because Shimano did not include installation instructions.

        Have these brakes on my Emonda ALR 6 they are very good... Good enough to replace the no name brakes on my Trek 1.5 that do not stop the bike... They work as well on my 1.5 little pressure and a good feel for the stop.

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

          I upgraded my front brake on my Scott 2014 Shimano old style 105. I did notice a difference in less force to stop and modulate brakes. I like the fact that the brake pads can be replaced without having to adjust the positioning of the whole brake pad. The rear brake could not be upgraded with the direct mount Shimano Ultegra due to the fact that the brake cable is mounted on the wrong side of the crank.

            I was torn between the Ultegra's or Dura Ace. I chose these and I'm glad I did. These install in a snap and are easy to adjust. I highly recommend the Ultegra cables and housing. On the road these brakes have great rim feel are smooth and extremely powerful. I have them on my Wabi fixie and these brakes will stop you on a dime. I'm in the market for a new geared bike and will most likely buy another set for that bike. Excellent brakes all the way around.

              I bought these to complete my piecemeal groupset upgrade from 2007 10 speed 105 shifters with Ultegra derailleurs. And other than the skewers, there is not much left that I have not upgraded on this '07 Raleigh Cadent Carbon frame. In the past, I had the stock generic road brakes that came on the bike The original brake calipers were okay in that I could stop, but compared to the new BR-6800 Ultegra brakes there is no comparison. Now I have to be careful when braking to stop that I don't get the back wheel in the air right at the end of the stop.

                Ultegra always works great for me. With about 50,000 miles over 11 years on 3 versions of Ultegra (6650, 6700 CD, and 6800 11sp CD). Never an issue on reliability, capability, or functioning. 1 brifter did act up once but the bike shop covered under warranty.

                If the price is right, these are a great upgrade to the cheaper stock brakes on most bikes. They offer a very solid feel and there is never a doubt about who is in control. I would recommend them to anyone.

                    Bought these to replace the off brand brakes that had come on my otherwise-all-Ultegra bike. Astonished at what a difference they make. 1. Much easier to apply braking pressure. 2. Smoother braking. 3. Easier to modulate how much pressure you need. Night and day difference vs. what I had on the bike before.

                    I purchased these after being concerned with the stopping power of the stock brakes on a used road bike. They were fading on stops and required a lot of pressure. The Shimano's were easy to install. I'm not a speed demon, but move along going down hill. These brakes are exceptional. I have complete confidence in stopping under all circumstances now. I would eventually like to replace all my components with Ultegra. These are great, and I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone.
