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:

    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.

      Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

      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.

            Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

            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.

            Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

            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.

                  most confident calipers i have ever owned, mech disc and canti included. smoked the finish off my H-plus son rims like 100 grit sand paper but no dishing. Considering swapping because of weight, and as a lighter rider i can, but solely for that reason. Highly recommend for anyone heavier, or wants a value performance brake caliper.

                      Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

                      I recently replaced the stock brakes on my 2005 Trek 1500. The new ultegra's are clearly stronger and more efficient. I can readily feel the braking improvement, these are stiffer and stop very confidently. I did not replace my levers in this case and can only wonder if there is any greater improvement if I used the Ultegra levers (versus original 105 levers on the bike now).
