Shimano 105 Brakes 5700

Enhanced brake arch pivot location for quick linear response. Better stopping power even in wet conditions. Super SLR Design relocates the brake lever pivot for better mechanical advantage. Synchronized with the new brake arch pivot a greater level of modulation and power are available from the tops of the brake hoods, where most people ride a majority of the time. Adjustable toe-in on the brake shoes allows for fine tuning braking performance while pad compounds nearly double wet weather braking performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good quality brake upgrage I bought the 105 brakes to upgrage my unbranded brakes on my trek road bike, what a difference i now have much more confidence going downhill fast with these brakes on my bike. If you want good stoppers that aren1t too heavy on the wallet look no further. 17 March 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by High quality brakes with great stopping power. An absolutely fantastic set of breaks from Shimano. They are durable, highly responsive, provide great stopping power, and will give you a feeling of confidence and safety when you cycle in any conditions. The brake pads are very durable and easily replaced. As with all Shimano brakes they are highly adjustable. Don't hesitate to purchase these brakes for they will not disappoint. Highly recommended. 29 January 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Надежные тормоза На моем самом первом шосейнике стояли тормоза Tiagra, и я был счастлив, поменяв их на какие-то дорогие Мавики (уж снятые с производства). После Тиагры было ощущение, что перешел чуть ли не на дисковые. Естественно, на новый шоссейник я планировал переставить эти так полюбившися мне тормоза, но там уже стояли 105 BR 5700, и я чисто для пробы решил прокатиться с ними. Каково же было мое удивление, когда в 2 раза более дешевые Шимы оказались ничуть не хуже дорогих Мавиков. Так я эти шимы на шоссере и оставил. Прекрасно тормозят по сухой погоде, хорошо - в дождь. Легкие, продуманная конструкция. Надежные. В комплекте весьма качественные колодки. Рычажок сбоку с фиксированными положениями не только помогает при замене камеры, но и позволяет прямо на ходу легко отрегулировать ход ручки.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Not Sora or Tiagra, don't compromise, just go for 105 My son also had a Giant Defy 3 with Tectro brakes just like the gentle man below, with Shimano Sora 9s Sti levers, and I have changed the brakes to these BR-5700s. I knew about the difference of pull ratio of these that Shimano says only BR-5600s would fit the Sora 9s levers. I also knew that the braking power would be too strong because of the shorter stroke, I just didn’t think it would be a trouble, as I thought I could manage it by the adjustment of cable tension, or even with the own control of the braking levers. He’s only ridden it for a few hundreds of miles yet, but so far, no problems at all. Here is the massage from him. (I only ride MTBs) You could NEVER be confident enough to go down hill with Tectros, but these 5700s do their job just superbly. They feel so solid as if they were just lumps of aluminum when Tectros feel something like makeshifts shabbily assembled. The braking of 5700s is not only powerful but also very controllable. You could be fully confident even when you’re doing 60km/h on down hill and slow down to 30km/h in 10m with hard braking, which is also helpful when you only want to modulate the speed a bit on the flat road by soft braking. Very hard or feathery soft, they work just as much as you pull the levers. Tectros wouldn’t work enough with your hands on the brackets, but 5700s just do fine with the smoother feeling of the cables… I, his mechanic, used to take trouble to adjust the Tectros as they seem to be the single-pivot calipers(?), but with these 105s, there’s hardly anything to do except for the routine visual checking. Once mounted (so easily), they stay as they always are, work just fine as usual, even with wheels put out and on. They come with the ordinary flat washers to be mounted on the frame or fork with the fixing bolts, but you may as well change them to some notched ones so that they will be fixed firmly. I’d also suggest you change the adjusting screws (Phillips) for gaps of pads to some hex ones, but you may not even touch them once the calipers are fixed firmly with the above notched washers. Probably only when you change the wheels or so. If you are thinking of upgrading the brakes, I do recommend 105s rather than Tiagras, which seem to be just “Sora with better cosmetic finish” as far as I’ve heard. You’ll surely find the dramatic difference from those like Tectros, with a little more of expense. They’ll make you ride safer, faster, and feel lots happier. NOTICE: Although they seem to work alright, that doesn’t mean I recommend these 5700s with Sora 9s levers. Please do it with your own responsibility when you try, as either Shimano or CRC won’t recommend it. 28 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Shimano Product Strong Breaking I am a mountain biker. But I decided to build a nice road bike for fitness and commuting. I decided to go 105 as it seemed to be a good contrast between quality and price. After building my bike with 105 all over its been superb. I have since had the chance to ride Ultegra and I did not see any huge difference. Strong, light, looks good. Ticks all the boxes. Building my road bike with CRC was a great success. I got an amazing deal and built my bike for around £1200. To buy a bike with my specs from a cycle shop you would be looked at £2500+. Very Happy 27 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Upgrade Added as a replacement for Tektra brakes fitted as original equipment on my Giant Defy 3 after they corroded. Even when the Tektras worked correctly they didn't instill confidence in an emergency. I changed the rears first and gained extra braking ang a more sensitive response. changing the fronts transformed the bike and gave it the brakes it always needed. Highly recomended, it seems you get what you pay for in the braking department. 08 August 2013

Answer: 
These calipers are only compatible with the 5700, 6700 and 7900 brake levers. This is due to them having a slightly different pull ratio.

Answer: 
Please ignore the below if you've done something with it already.

I, well, my son actually, also had 9s Sora Sti levers and Tectro brakes, and I
changed the brakes to 5700, although I knew only 5600 would fit 9s Sora and
5700 woudn't. I knew about the pull racio and had heard that the braking power
wuold be too strong. I tought it would be just fine if it got stronger.

Just as I thought, there hasn't been any problem so far. 5700s are just fantastic.
He just couldn't go dowm hill as fast as he wanted because of the poor reliability
of Tectro, which does not work at all, as you do understand, but now, he's doing
at something like 70km/h with lots of confidence.

If they work too much, I think you can arrange it with the wire tension.
But either way, always on your own responsibility.

Pleased if the above would help even a abit.

Good luck.

Answer: 
Please forget about the below if you've done something with it already.

These are recessed-fit as CRC says.

I've also got a 80's steel road bike with non-recessed fit, and been thinking
of converting the brakes. There's always some trouble of old brake pads to
replace.And the classic brakes look nice, but they just don't work !

Although I don't mean to recommend it, but all you have to do is drill the outside
hole (=nut side hole) to make it larger, to fit the recessed nut. 5700s should come
with several nuts included in different sizes so that one of them shall fit any of the
frames or the forks. I imagine your bike is also made of steel, not aluminum or
carbon, it should endure a little modification. I think you might as well check the
width of the fork or the rear mount on your frame, as well as the length of the pivot
bolts of these 5700s before you try. Ask CRC.

Anyway, on your own resposibility.

Good luck.

Compatibility

Got SRAM Rival shifters and Tektro brakes. Looking to replace the Tektros. Also got 25mm tyres and mudguards. Will the 105s handle the tyres / mudguards and be compatible with the Rival shifters?

Answer: 
The 105s are compatible with the Rival shifters. I have Rival on the CX bicycle and 105s on the road bicycle. The cable travel on the CX bicycle is 8-9 mm and 9-10 mm on the road bicycle. Just almost the same.
It's impossible to say whether your tyres+mudguards compatible with 105s or not because you didn't specify the type of mudguards. I can only note Tektros have a little more space for mudguards than 105s.

Answer: 
There is no reason that the 105 brakes shouldn't work with 2300 STI levers that I can see. I'm using Sora levers that came with my bike which were operating Tektro brakes, seeing as it's a matter of a cable pulling the brake lever I can't see a problem. Great improvement though!
