Give Your Rim Brakes The Upgrade They Deserve

When your rim brake pads have gathered enough metal scraps or are worn down altogether, Shimano's Dura-Ace BR-R55C4 Brake Pads are a solid upgrade to get you back on the road.

Available in the alloy rim-specific compound, each package comes with a pair of pads to outfit one caliper and will fit Shimano calipers with a slide-in pad holder w/ fixing screw.

Features:

  • Rim brake pads for machined aluminum braking surfaces
  • For use with cantilever, direct-mount, or dual-pivot calipers
  • Compatible with Dura-Ace, Ultegra, and 105-series rim brakes
  • Predictable stopping power in wet and dry conditions
  • Each package contains a pair of pads for one caliper

Taking a file to old pads to remove the glaze helps but new Shimano pads perform better and likely reduce rim ware

Taking a file to old pads improves braking but new Shimano pads are better and also reduce damage to rims.

Excellent Brake Pads
rating
by Gary

These pads work very well in wet and dry conditions. Solid stopping power, and excellent modulation. They work better than Kool Stops and every bit as well as Swiss Stops. They seem to wear a bit quicker than some brands in wet weather, but they have great grab and feel. I'm sticking with these Dura Ace pads.

I'm really happy with the new compound featured in these pads. The old Shimano pads would pick up grit on wet rides and then literally grind the rims until the braking surfaces looked like old LP records. These new pads have almost entirely eliminated that problem. To me, it seems that these pads are also more grippy than the old versions, and I find my stopping distances are decreased. Modulation is very good as well. The only complaint, and not one I am willing to deduct a star for, is that they seem to wear out much faster than the old compound.

Excellent pads, I've only used them in dry conditions. They have excellent stopping power. The durability of these pads is also excellent. This my 2nd set.

I switched back to my alloy rimcarbon fairing wheel set for the Mtn. Momma century. Lots of climbs - I counted 9 with epic, switchback descents. Not once did I feel out of control braking as the Shimano pads instilled confidence in the turns.

These replaced the stock pads that came on my Specialized Allez. They fit perfectly into the stock shoe housings, but the new pads were noticeably better in both wet and dry. These were a good investment!

I've been cycling since the 80s so it was a novelty to find that I could just replace brake friction surfaces on my Litespeed. Everything used to be vulcanized together. In any case Shimano hasn't changed the shape of the pads in a while so they should fit your application too.

While these lasted they were great, but they wore out quick. I was using them on aluminum rims with a ceramic coating - these typically wear out pads quickly. It only took a couple weeks for these to be unusable though.
