Rated 5 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by great looks.. nice stopping power Good upgrade from the default brake caliper that came together with my first bike. Quality construction and performance. 17 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Upgrade These were part of my ongoing upgrade on my Trek Madone. The brakes were an un-named brand which worked reasonably well. These are a different standard altogether, the quality and finish is A1 as well as giving an improved braking, even with the Tiagra levers. 19 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Those calipers are better than the one i had on my road bike. They brake very well and easy to use. Well constructed. Love them. 18 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great brakes inspire confidence... look great too!!! Well worth the money as a birthday upgrade for my road bike. Easily fitted and no effort to adjust, work great with 105 5700 levers. 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great stopping power I'm really happy with these BR-6700 Shimano brake calipers. I felt I had to share this review as I needed the clarification below but it was really hard to get a proper answer. YES you can use these with older style levers. The pull ratio is not an issue. I asked Shimano and they advised it's best to use these new generation calipers with the same generation levers due to a change in pull ratio. However they suggested it's ok to use the older levers but you may experience a more spongy feel. For the price I had to try it for myself and surprise, surprise NO spongy feel! In fact it feels even better with a touch more modulation. Similar to comparing hydro disc brake feel. I was using the Dura ace 7800 levers and calipers. Donated my 7800 calipers to my son so gave the Ultegra BR-6700 a go. They work perfectly and in my opinion pull up slightly better than the BR-7800 with an improved, stronger feel. Both pad sets used are the same (R55 C3). I love the colour of the dark grey and interestingly the weight is identical to the older dura ace 7800 calipers just 155g ea with pads and mounting nut. Now my son is asking for them instead of the 7800 calipers just because they look hot against carbon! Think I could buy a spare set if they can do the same price for me again. I'm thinking CRC could consider previous buyers that give a positive review an option to buy again at same price paid for first? 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! The installation was really easy and the product itself is amazing! 28 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great stopping power! I bought these callipers for an older bike, so i converted them for use with a nutted bolt. I use them tektro inverse brake levers and the stopping power is fantastic. couldn't recommend them more. 30 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works better than 105 5700 calliper My bike came with 6700 shifters, but 105 5700 brake callipers. I was not pleased with brake performance. Initially, I purchased some Dura Ace pads, but did not see much improvement. I decided to get these Ultegra 6700 callipers, and I am glad I did. Before upgrading, I read opinions on forums, and in general it was said that Ultegra is just the same as 105, only lighter. I found this not true. To be fair comparison, I put the pads that were on the 105 brakes on these Ultegra brakes. I was pleased to see an overall improvement in stopping. There was more power, and the Ultegra calliper flexes much less than the 105 callipers. I got these during Shimano sale week, and am very pleased. 08 October 2013

I have a Cannondale CAADX with Tektro brake callipers and Shimano 105 levers and want to upgrade the callipers to Shimano Ultegra 6700 for better modulated braking. Are the 6700's compatible with the 105 levers?

Answer: 
The 6700 brakes will work fine with the 105 levers as the brakes will use the same throw (cable pull) as the older version so will be fully compatible.

Answers

Answer: 
The ULTEGRA 6700,6800,6810 numbers are in reference to the model number of the component group; which can sometimes only have cosmetic difference and commonly mechanical differences.

This caliper is recommended for use with only Shimano 7900 (Dura Ace) and 6700 (Ultegra) shifters/brake levers to obtain the correct cable pull ratio and get optimum power from the caliper.

Compatibility with your system will depend on which 105 model number currently being used; please forward the model number and additional information to our Technical Department for more advice here -
