Shimano Ultegra BR-R8000 Brake Calipers - Sold Separately - front or rear.

Shimano Ultegra R8000 brake calipers are an ideal balance between light weight and power - ideal for the enthusiast or competitive rider.

  • Clear contact feeling with balanced rigidity, weight and stopping power
  • Stabilizer between axles reduces deformation and improves braking efficiency
  • More predictable, linear braking curve
  • Sleek design
  • Narrower gap between arms
  • Wider clearance with larger tire sizes
  • Compatible with wider 28C tire size
Mr Ventura Better braking power than before. Love the clearance, I can easily fit a 28 tire.
Mr Palmer Bought these to replace the Axis ones that came on my Tarmac. Really it was mainly so it matches the rest of the groupset, but I was surprised how much difference they actually made to the braking performance. Very happy with them.
Rob Stone These stop so much better than my FSA Gossamer brakes did. Used them on my carbon rims with Swissstop pads also purchased from Merlin and they stop as well as my Aluminum clinchers which shows how good these are.
Amy I upgraded my brake calipers from Tektro Axis to Shimano Ultegra. The ultegra calipers are more responsive to braking on steep downhills, meaning I quickly come to a stop so I feel they create a much more safer riding experience.
Mr Jones Great design, slightly heavier than the previous 6800 callipers, hideaway quick release is a neat touch. Clearance for 28c, smoother dual pivot action over previous generation - a great upgrade - good modulation and power with R8000 shifters
Mr Dagondon It has a strong brake with a less grip on the brake lever.
Barry Beautifully made and with a smooth and strong performance. Easy to fit and look good on the bike. Slightly on the heavy side but I’d trade a few grams for performance and reliability any time!
Charles Look really smart and have great stopping power. Dead easy to install.
JFW Great upgrate to my new bike. Had the Ultegra 6800's on my old bike, these are ebven better.
Mr EKİCİ R8000 brakes are good than 6800 series. So rigid and powerful.
J... Best price online, quick and efficient service.
Miss Hill Can't believe how good these brake calipers are. Excellent stopping even on steep descents.
Mr Cooksey Received this product in a timely manner. Fantastic product that met all expectations. Replaced my old 105 brakes with these and a noticeable difference for sure. A definite upgrade worth while.
David Fearn Fantastic brakes at a great price. They feel really solid and have improved the braking performance on my bike. They replaced the TRP brakes my bike came with. The Ultegra brakes are probably cheaper than the TRP brakes but the modern technology makes these feel like the more expensive of the two. Would definitely buy again.
Felt Great brakes. Much more better braking than Ultegra 6800. Looks good.
Mr McGee Purchased the Ultegra R8000 brakes as an upgrade for my new bike. They are fantastic quality and really easy to fit and adjust. Very good value and the service from Merlin Cycles was excellent.
Mr Moran Great brakes best value for money in shimano range.
Tim Great looking and superior braking to the previous shimanos I was using
Mr Ström Very nice pair of calipers. Look amazing, good quality, very price worthy and was easy to install. I will order parts from Merlin cycles again!
jason Easy to set up and great stoppers.
Mr Ortiz First of all Merlin Cycles is my first go to for bikes parts. The prices are incredible. This is a must-have pair of calipers if you don't have the budget for the super high end. I saw really no difference.
Colin Leslie Thomas Excellent power and modulation.
Duane Comins The increased stiffness and stopping power of the R8000 are amazing when compared to my previous 5700 105 brakeset. Worth the upgrade.
Shawn Fantastic brakes. Strong and have a great feel on steep descents. Love the R8000 style.
Joshua Exceptional finish, improved braking power, so easy to install
Mr Concepcion Big improvement over previous model. Smoother with more braking power with good modulation.
