Shimano 105 BR-5800 Caliper Brake Set
When Shimano upgrades a group no stone is left unturned as evident in the new Shimano 105 ST-5800 Caliper Brake Set. While the big story with the new Shimano 105 5800 componentry is the jump to 11-speed for the drivetrain, the brakes have definitely made noteworthy strides as well. First and foremost is the increase in stopping power -- 10% more than previous 105 brakes -- thanks to an updated dual-pivot design. They're flat out crisper and smoother than ever before. And for those who prefer road tires on the fatter end of the spectrum, running 700x28 bad boys is not a problem at all.
  • Re-vamped dual-pivot design increases stopping power
  • Twin bearings make for super smooth brake modulation
  • Clearance for 28mm tires
  • Includes front and rear brakes
  • Color: Black

      Comments about Shimano 105 BR-5800 Caliper Brake Set:

      I purchased these brakes to replace the Tektro R325 brakes on my Nashbar 105 road bike. The 105 brakes are much smoother and stop the bike better. I also like that you can center the brakes using an allen wrench instead of a screwdriver. They are a very affordable upgrade.

              Comments about Shimano 105 BR-5800 Caliper Brake Set:

              I got these to complete my 105 5800 build. Before these, I had the OEM brakes. I was hoping to get some significantly better performance. However, the braking performance hasn't increased by that much. This could be because I am still dialing in the tuning. However, there is an improvement.

              Overall, for the money (at time of purchase I could get a set of brakes for the price of 1 of the Ultegra brakes,) these are a pretty good deal. They're quality. They'll stop your bike. They'll match your build for an affordable price. Just what a brake should do.

              One thing to note is that they do come with brake pads installed on them good for aluminum braking surfaces.

                I have Ultegra 6800 brakes on all of my other road bikes, and the stopping power on the 6800 is like no other rim brake... markedly better. When I recently decided to rebuild an old school 1986 Schwinn Prelude, it definitely needed better brakes, especially when I am used to the stopping power of the 6800s. When I read that the new 105-5800 brakes use the same design as the 6800s, I decided to save a few bucks and give them a try. I am so glad that I did... they are excellent. Great stopping power, very quick to grab without having to apply too much force to the levers, and worth every penny. If you want to save a few bucks, go for the 5800s.

                a must-have for the new 5800 brake lever

                    Comments about Shimano 105 BR-5800 Caliper Brake Set:

                    This is a review of Shimano 5800 brake calipers mated to Shimano 5800 shifters, only.

                    Recently, I bought the new Nashbar carbon 105 bike which came from Taiwan equipped with new-style 5800 shifters (yay!) but old-style brake calipers (boo).

                    I bought these new-style 5800 calipers from Nashbar; to match the new-style 5800 levers.

                    I did not take any scientific measurements; but I can say that the 5800-5800 match-up feels "better" than the 5800 shifter to old-style caliper mismatch; stops seem shorter, the 5800-5800 match-up give me more feedback, more control; and more confidence.

                    the 5800-5800 match-up also feels "better" than any combination of old-style shifters/brakes I have ever used... including some which were much more expensive!

                    Note that the 5800 uses hand-me-down technology from the newest Ultegra. On some sites, the prices are so close I might say skip 105, buy the Ultegra; but Nashbar has the 5800's way cheaper.

                    Of course, you will have different wheels, different hand strength, etc. Your experience may vary.

                    Note: 5800 calipers NOT tested w/ old-style shifters.

                    My new bike came with FSA Gossamer brakes the rest of the components are the new 105 11 speed group components, which I feel work very well. So I figured I would match the brakes. The brakes are the new dual pivot design which is claimed increases brake power. I mounted the 105 brakes, the dual pivots seems to have some play fore and aft. The play was surprising to me but maybe that is because of the dual pivot. As far as performance they do seem to have slightly more positive feel and a little more power stopping than the stock FSA Calipers although there is a slight weight penalty again because of the dual pivot. I guess in reality I should have gotten Ultegra Brakes and upgraded the rest of the group to Ultegra in time but I think the new 105 stuff is actually pretty decent.
