General information about our shipping
This was an upgrade from the Tiagra brakes that my new Cannondale came with. Good improvement, with better modulation and braking ready for the winter. Merlin service and price as good as always.
I have been slowly upgrading my road bike with higher quality components. These brake calipers were a fantastic price and look great on the bike. The quality is fantastic and I have so much confidence in the stopping power they offer. Quality service, products and service from Merlin
Excellent brake callipers, they look the dogs rocks and they perform as well as they look. Increased my confidence on fast, technical descents and when cornering, as I know I have good stopping power if I need to quickly scrub speed off before turning in. Excellent product.
Purchased to upgrade original kit and have hugely improved braking performance. Typical high Shimano quality at a super Merlin price.
I bought these to replace a pair of 6600 Ultegra calipers. These are even sharper and were a doddle to fit. I don't see any reason to spend more. And as usual Merlin Cycles provided 5 star service.
Good quality item as you would expect from Shimano. Easy to fit with choice of different length nuts and adjustable toe shoes. recommended item.
A major improvement from my tiagra set I had. Stopping power has increased with better feel and adds confidents on the downhill sections.
Great price and great product. Upgraded from the brakes that came on the bike. Better stopping power in the wet than my old did in the dry! Can't fault them.
Bought these as an upgrade and am very happy with the stopping power of this brake set. Excellent fit and function, gives more confidence on my rides
Worthy upgrade from my brakes on allez elite. Smoother positive braking. Build quality much better. Was concerned about compatibility with tiagra levers but seem to work fine. Excellent value for money
Replaced BR R560 with these. Price was too good not to give it a go. I had never been happy with the Alex rim and R560 combination, not nearly powerful enough imo. The 105 5700 from Merlin were easy to fit even for me and are much better with new RS80 rims. Great sevice from Merlin as always.
I got these to replace my BR-R560 brakes which came standard on my Avanti Giro. Shimano compatibility charts don't recommend R560's with 105 Calipers. These 105 calipers use the same pads but they feel and perform better. Also compatible with 6700 and 9700 shifters.
Got these to go with new shifters 105 (5700) following the failure of my old 5600 shifters, not disappointed with the stopping performance or finish.
These are great brakes, very easy to fit and set up [ full instructions are easy to download from shimano ]. These must be the cheapest REAL road brakes you can buy, highly recommended.
looking for a bullet proof pair of brakes to upgrade a complete groupset on my bike and these were the perfect addittion. The brakes are very light but have excellent stopping power 10/10
I am new to this whole road bike thing and more at home racing BMX. But I decided to buy a road bike recently to improve my fitness and loose weight. It came partly equipped with Shimano 105 but I wasn't overly happy with the stopping power or look of the stock Tektro brakes. If found everything about the 105 drivetrain to be awesome, light and smoothly shifting so decided to upgrade my brakes to match. I found them very easy to fit and setup. They are super responsive, smooth and feel strong when stopping quickly is required. I am really happy with my purchase and would recommend them if you are looking for a good quality brake for a good price.
im pleased I took this direction as the new brakes are much sharper. The arm where the cable outer terminates is quite a bit longer than my originals. This delivers better mechanical advantage at the cost of increased travel in the brake lever.
Perfect, as advertised. No problems
