Shimano's Ultegra BR-R8000 Brake Calipers are light yet rigid dual-pivot caliper brakes designed to enhance braking power. The brake arch structure is optimized for dialed control and the ergonomic positioning of the outer cable stop position alleviates friction in the cable routing. The brake shoes can be toed-in to custom specifications and the spring tension is adjustable as well, ensuring each rider's individual needs are met. Equipped with wider clearance, these brake calipers can accommodate the ever expanding population of cyclists sporting wider rims and larger tires.

Great upgrade

Bought these as an upgrade that replaced the older version of my previous Ultegra brakes. Overall seem much better improvement and better stopping power than the older version. Also look better and almost looks the same as the dura ace but at a better price.

The best stop for the buck
by Otoman

Peak rim brake. You can save a couple grams for a lot more money but stopping power is no different with Dura Ace. These brakes stop on a dime. Easy to setup. They stay adjusted how you put them. Excellent.

Better Brakes than stock

Replaced OEM Tekro calipers and much prefer the braking action, feel and looks. Install was straightforward, they do fit Conti GP 4 Season 28's. take your time adjusting them, and you will be rewarded with a firm, responsive feel and great stopping power.

The Ultegra is the 105 caliper with a stiffening frame added, not sure there's much difference, but given the minor costweight delta, the Ultegra seems worth it. And they look good.

I upgraded from 105 5800 brakes which were fine for me but these do seem to have more stopping power, I'm never worried about having enough time to stop even when flying down hills and braking as late as possible. I installed these myself and had generic replacement cable in the terrible Jagwire housing that came with the bike, after upgrading to the 8000 shifters and cables the brakes feel more powerful.

Outstanding performance

Bought these calipers to upgrade the factory calipers on my Kuota Kiral. .. Bottom line there is no way anyone can argue these calipers don't function as well as dura ace. ... yes dura ace is lighter, but the braking power is similar between the two... save yourself a couple hundred dollars... buy ultegra 8000 line and loose 5 pounds. ..

Compatibility Issues

Might have compatibly issues with Fork Wheels. The metal support arch was rubbing on my front tire. Very short height on the inside arch.

A big upgrade from the old 6800 brakes. It is the first time I can remember a noticeable upgrade in components!
