Shimano 105 – BR-5800 front brake callipers, 49mm drop, silver. Featuring an updated design of the symmetrical dual pivot calliper, with a higher arch allowing clearance for up to 28 mm tyre type.
The Shimano 5800 has gone 11 Speed for the latest incarnation of the 105. The 5800 has been inspired by the innovations of the more upper end Shimano Ultegra and Dura Ace; you can see the technological influences across the design of the 5800 components. More advanced and lighter than its predecessors and with a more eye catching design, the 5800 promises high performance and is one of the latest cycling must haves.

A good improvement from the last 105 model (BR-5700), more sturdy and easier to adjust with the small allen key, and it needs less power from the brake lever, definitely a very good choice for the price.
Brilliant brakes! Went on quickly, adjusted the centring with the new (?) centring screw and away I rode. Really, really good braking from these coupled up with Campagnolo Record Carbon levers providing one finger braking for most usage. Usual fast service from Merlin
As always, excellent service from Merlin. Love these brakes, got them fitted in minutes, apart from a little extra weight can see very little difference between these and the Ultegra 6800 brakes. Using with 5700 shifters without any issues
