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 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).

            Great value when on Nashbar sale. Put these on a Ti singlespeed with Dura Ace track hubs. Great braking, good looking. Certainly not worth spending twice as much to shave 5 or 10 grams per caliper!

            Comments about Shimano Ultegra BR-6800 Brake Caliper:

            Part of an upgrade, was using 6700 Ultegra brakes and 6600 levers. Now using with 6700 Ultegra levers, feel very positive when stopping and no fading. I ride alot of mountains and these work great on the decents when needed.
