Shimano eliminates redundancy with their Ultegra BR-R8010 Direct Mount Brake, streamlined to achieve a low profile look, reduced weight, and enhanced aerodynamics for better overall performance. The outer cable stop is re-positioned to alleviate cable routing friction and the brake arch proportions are optimized for increased responsiveness and power. The brake shoes are adjustable and easy to align, allowing for easy maintenance and customization. The BR-R8010 Direct Mount Brake can accommodate wider rims and larger tires, up to 28mm, thanks to increased clearance.
