The new Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset has improved on an already stellar Ultegra line of components, and the BR-8010 direct mount front brake caliper is proof positive in Shimano's "trickle down" effect from their professional-level Dura-Ace components. By attaching the brake caliper directly to the fork, instead of the conventional bolt through the fork crown design that road bikes have utilized for ages, Shimano has reduced redundant parts and increased the brake's performance. Not only that, this direct mount caliper can handle wider, 28c tires with aplomb.
- Direct mount design reduces redundant parts and increases overall braking performance
