Mr Charron I replaced my umarked sidepulls (likely Shimano as the brake levers and shifters are Shimano 105) that came on my 2007 Giant TCR2. The bolts and quick release chrome had flaked and the metal was corroding. They were still functional and performed well with the Duraace pads. However, I noticed a difference immediately with the dual pivot brake design. They brake much more evenly: they don't pull the wheel to the side. It was a worthwhile upgrade.
Paul Main difference is these open wider than my old 6800 brakes, easier to slide a 28mm tire in and out.
Oliver Fantastic brakes. Braking feels smooth and responsive. And the complete the 105 groupset and give a nice look on the bike.
Mr Salih Good price, feel very sturdy.
Mr Deerfield Going from a cheaper brake to these removed any of my concerns when laying into these. None of that spongy soft feeling and super responsive when you need it most.
darren Good upgrade from tiagra 4700 which felt very wooden. The brakes have good feel and better performance and a great price
Martin H Good product (of course), well priced and promptly despatched. Handy to be able to buy two fronts, one reversed for a nut-fit rear brake bridge.
nige I have Ultegra on another bike; in terms of performance I personally can’t feel any difference. If you just want performance and quality, buy these.
Nick I bought a Specialized Allez with the intention of buying a cheaper bike initially that I could upgrade as time went by. I'd read that an upgrade on the brake calipers was good starting point so after about 6 months on the supplied calipers, I upgraded to 105s. The improvement is amazing and well worth doing. These 105s feel like a much better built product and are way more responsive than my old ones. Just what I needed. Delivery was great from Merlin too and arrived in a couple of days.
Mr Gramonte Im using Shimano BR-R561 caliper before. With the new R7000 caliper braking improved and looks good also.
Mr Evans Great value from Merlin, and perfectly good set of brakes well below ultegra price band
Charlie G Bought these as an upgrade to the brake calipers fitted to my Specialized Allez Elite, they are well priced upgrade that work very well and look great!
Mr Wood These brakes are superb. First time out I nearly locked the wheels. In the dry, almost as good as discs. Good price and super fast service too.
Mr Barroso High quality and very effective brakes.
Mr Parker Great Calipers, fitted and bedded in, can already feel the difference from the stock ones they replaced.
Peter Solid braking performance and easily comparable to Ultegra and Duraace brake technology.
Mr EKİCİ Like a Ultegra. Powerful brake, not any problem.
Mr ROHLING Excelente. SHimano 105 R700 é o melhor custo-beneficio! Melhorou muito a frenagem em comparação com os que eu tinha antes
Mr Ridley good compound, may upgrade to ashima pads on the front as I am 250 pounds
F Chr. Those are amazing, I bought a Specialized Tarmac SL4 equipped with Tiagra brake caliper. It felt like it was dangerous when riding at high speed. I bought those and now I can say my brakes are responsive and way more efficient.
Mr Trombetta I love using Merlin Cycles for bike parts, I am always happy with their prices and the service they provide. Oh and the Shimano 105 calipers are superb too, they have a really good feel and are extremely effective. Thanks Merlin.
