Hayes CX-5 Disc Brake

Built with the rigors of cyclocross in mind, the Hayes CX-5 disc brake is made out of forged aluminum and polished to give it that eye-catching look. The CX-5 gives you the stopping power and modulation you can't achieve with traditional cantilever brakes. The CX-5 is available with a 160 mm or 140 mm rotor, included. Sold as a single brake caliper with rotor. Weighs 320 grams.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by easy fit, easy living with It has to be compared to the benchmark Avid BB7. I think the BB7 is slightly better in terms of performance, it is lighter and both pads can be adjusted. The CX-5 has only one adjustment mode for the inner pad and it is heavier. However, changing the pads on the BB7 is a right pain in the neck... spring, retaining clip... all those things require fiddling and sometimes the retaining clip does not want to go back in place. The CX-5 has magnets and swapping pads takes 2 minutes with no hassle. The original pads are OK, but a set of organic Swisstop (model D 19) would lift the caliper on pair with the best mechanical calipers out there. SO, BB7 for performance, CX 5 for maintenance and if you want to swap pads for different conditions 23 October 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by they're good! Thought I might not enjoy these as much as my long standing Avid BB7s (the standard for mechanical discs) but, I haver to say they are nice to have on my new cross bike...maybe slightly heavier than BB7s but very easy to adjust and the feedback/spring return is heavier than a BB7, which means when you get mud and other junk in your brakes they are less likely to grind or rub on the rotors as the pad return is not easily overcome. I am happy with them (until someone puts out a titanium mech disc:) 18 March 2013

Do these brakes work with older Shimano shifters; e.g. Ultegra SL 6600?

Answer: 
These Shimano groupset's are not intended for use with Disc Brakes as the cable pull ratio differs greatly; reducing modulation.
