Dura-Ace stopping power at an Ultegra price.

11 speeds aren't the only innovation in Shimano's new Ultegra group, the BR-6800 Brakes borrow heavily from the top tier Dura-Ace model, featuring a totally reworked pivot system, along with a stylish new look.

This increase in efficiency is managed without any weight sacrifice over last year's model thanks to a symmetrical dual pivot design. This feature allows each arm to travel the same distance when the lever is squeezed. Combine this efficient design with Shimano's exclusive new pad compound, and the result is an incredibly powerful brake with outstanding modulation and confidence-inspiring control.

The BR-6800 Caliper Brake Set includes one front and one rear brake. For best braking performance, Shimano recommends pairing these brakes with the ST-6800 STI levers. Claimed weight for the set is 335g.

Quality, precise, light, durable, these words describe the unrivaled performance of these brakes.

These brakes are much smoother, more modulated, and more powerful than sram brakes. When I say these brakes are powerful I mean that the sheer power of these brakes parted the Red Sea, not Moses. I found that these brakes have greater horizontal clearance than my previous sram rival 22 brakes (I have Hed Belgium plus rims). They come equipped with some great break pads and look fantastic. I have been racing on these for a bit now and they are non-finicky and lack any faults. The aesthetics beauty of these brakes far exceeds Michelangelo's David and the build quality is only dreamt of by German engineers.

I bought these to upgrade my bike from 10 year old Ultegra brakes. Modulation and stopping power have been improved.

These replaced Tiagra brakes, which rusted and came apart. I'm hoping these will be better

These are the best brakes I have ever used. I had a set of CNC brakes that were pretty good but these just work. I hope to do an entire custom build on a carbon frame and these are on the build sheet. I did use different brake pads but the same pads I have used for the past few years so it really boils down to the caliper itself.

Got these to replace the stock brakes on my Cervelo so they would match the brake levers. These are great. Solid feel and easy to install. Shipping was super fast too!
