So much better than any other brake calipers I've owned. Light and powerful and look great.
Really like the new pivot design of these brakes - now both pads contact at the same angle - surely resulting in more efficient braking.
And they look fantastic.
These brakes are immense.
A step up over the original Shimano calliper design.
The callipers are stiff low weight and mechanically sound.
Very easy to change pads too.
I recently upgraded my brakes to the Shimano 9000 brake calipers. I should have done it sooner as these are the best rim brakes I have used, fantastic stopping power.
In a word, sublime.
Massive stopping power with subtle nearly infinite modulation control, even on carbon rims (ENVE 3.4).
Worth every extra penny as far as I am concerned.
Life is short. Don't make it shorter with subpar brakes.
Great upgrade, very much needed on a carbon rim, I stop up as quick on carbon as I do on alloy rim. Top class engineering.
