Equipment > Components > Brakes > Brakes - Rim


Rim braking is most effective with the best, most proven caliper brake designs ever made- and for our money, the list starts and ends with Shimano's recent SLR-EV caliper system. The distinctive contact point is matched only by the feel, control, and power of Shimano's design. For the money, Ultegra is impossible to beat, with a massive savings from Dura-Ace, a modest weight gain, and what feels to most sensitive cyclists like the same performance. With the Ultegra BR-R8100-series brakes, Shimano carries over the proven R8000 design, with a new finish.

SLR-EV is an update to the road SLR technology featuring a dual symmetric pivot brake caliper. The short-arm brake design employs two bearings and a roller to realize greater efficiency in the pivot area and deliver superior modulation and power for braking. This listing is for purchasing the calipers as a set, front and rear.
