Shimano ST-RS685 Hydraulic Disc 11-Speed Shift/Brake Levers and Calipers
If you're going to make the jump to disc brakes for your road or cyclocross bike, why not upgrade to a true revolution in braking performance with the Shimano ST-RS685 Hydraulic Disc 11-Speed Shift/Brake Levers and Calipers. These 11-speed shift/brake levers are Ultegra-level in construction plus are compatible with all of Shimano's mechanical 11-speed road groups (Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and 105) so you can keep your derailleurs and only upgrade the shifters. The RS685 levers use an opposed 2-piston design and one way internal fluid circuit that improves performance, braking control, modulation, and make bleeding easy. The ergonomics are similar to Shimano's other current levers, with only a slightly enlarged bump to house the cylinder.

The RS785 hydraulic disc brake calipers are specifically designed for use with road brake levers, with a tailored piston stroke and modulation. They can be used with either IS or post mounts (with adapters, not included) and feature oversized 22mm ceramic pistons that help manage the higher heat generated by the faster speeds achieved on the road. The pads are self-centering, and the caliper has been designed to improve clearance with the rotor, decreasing the chances of rubbing.
  • Hydraulic disc brakes deliver smooth, powerful, easily modulated stopping power
  • 2x11-speed mechanical shifting is compatible with Shimano 11-speed Dura-Ace/Ultegra/105 drivetrains
  • Includes pair of Shimano R785 hydraulic road disc brake calipers
  • R785 brakes feature ICE technology pads to dissipate heat and maintain braking performance
  • 22mm ceramic pistons for superior heat insulation
  • Forged alloy calipers are lightweight and strong
  • 2-piston design reduces leading effect and improves braking control
  • Includes hydraulic hoses
  • Note: Disc brake rotors not included

Cons

  • Hoods A Little Loose

Best Uses

Comments about Shimano ST-RS685 Hydraulic Disc 11-Speed Shift/Brake Levers and Calipers:

The set has all components needed to install but will require a bleed cup. Overall quality set. The hoods are a little too loose and that is the only flaw.

    Comments about Shimano ST-RS685 Hydraulic Disc 11-Speed Shift/Brake Levers and Calipers:

    Everything you need is in the box. Just pick up a blead cup and some new bar tape and you're ready to go. Hoods are a bit bigger, which I actually like. Breaking has better modulation than the TRP Hy/Rd I took off. Also seems to be less front rotor rubbing when climbing out of the saddle. Gained over 100g swapping out the stock 6800 levers and TRP breaks. A great deal at the sale price.
