Brand Shimano
Type of brakeRimbrake


The Shimano Ultegra R8000 brakes have been given more tyre clearance so they can take tyres up to 30 mm wide! This also improves brake leverage, offering increased brake performance even on wheels with wider rims. Furthermore, for the Ultegra R8000 brakes the Shimano engineers have tried to improve the aerodynamics of the brakes. They succeeded by turning the lever used to adjust cable tension inward by one quarter.

Even more powerful, with drawbacks.

Had to upgrade from R700 long reach calipers, due to a frame change. The 8000s are a significant step up in power and modulation. I'm less impressed by the quick release, which does not open the caliper up enough to clear my 25mm Pro4s. That forces a twiddle of the cable adjuster to clear the tyre. This works ok, but frankly feels low rent, with a coarse and clunky feel. Also, there is still no protective buffer to prevent frame damage when the front wheel swings round. Not a lot to ask.


  • Attractive
  • Powerful
  • Well modulating


  • Poor quick release clearance
  • No protection against frame damage

Top Aanbieding

Was op zoek naar nieuwe stelschroeven voor mijn Ultegra 6700 remhoeven, tijdens mijn zoektocht stuitte ik op de Flash aanbieding van de R 8000. Top product voor een top prijs, kan niet wachten tot een volgende Flash aanbieding in de R 8000 serie. Zo wordt je fiets upgraden nog leuker.

Nice looking brakes with good performance

I was changing from old Ultegra 6700 to Ultegra 8000 on my training bike and it was only the brake Calipers to change also to get complete set with 8000 Those are braking better, note that I use the carbon rim so I moved over the exsiting prake pads so this was the same, and the brake capacaty is better with this new Ultegra 8000 They look also great :)

quel progres !!!!!!

remplace avantageusement mes anciens étriers de frein, j'ai retrouver du mordant au freinage et je suis bien plus serein dans les descentes de ma région de montagne.
