Shimano has yet again raised the bar with the all-new, redesigned Ultegra Shimano BR-8010 Caliper Brake. It comes with a sleek, dark new look and a host of other new features like improved stopping power and tire clearance. It offers a more predictable, linear braking curve and a clear contact feeling with better linearity. Another of these new added features is the compatibility with 28c tire sizes, which comes at a perfect time when the industry is leaning towards the use of wider rims and larger tires.
Direct mount brake
Direct brake mounts connect directly to the frame to reduce redundant parts and increase overall braking performance
the new R8010 rear under BB chain stay mount brake is exactly the same as the old model. just a new color. it still does not open wide enough on the drive side for modern wide rims. I have 25mm wide rims and using thin pads it barely clears the rim. for some reason the nondrive side opens up really far. I could not see this fitting a 28mm wide rim at all. maybe on some bikes the direct mount threaded holes in the chain stay are farther apart allowing a wider rim, I don't know if they are a standard dimension.
the front brake seems to be the same except for the release lever and color. but just like the prior model it can be opened up wide for wide rims.
a quick google search will show a lot of people have this issue with chain stay mounted direct mount brakes from shimano. this new ultegra brake will not solve your clearance issue like I hoped it would.
First time using direct mount brakes. Put them on a Domane ALR frameset build. These things stay where you put them. I have each pad a literal hairs-width from the wheel and they stay there until I apply the brakes. Old center mount brakes would move a little no matter how tight you bolted them on, requiring a little more play to keep them from accidently rubbing when not engaged. These things are awesome. I purchased both the front model and the rear seat stay model. Amazing!
