The Review
Had been using these calliper for sometime already and love the braking force of these brake. they are able to stop your wheels rotation almost instantly when braking but then you must have a good set of tyres in order to enable you to stop in time. Ultimately a brake that worth the money that you fork out, Braking are simply like the Dura ace minus the weight different only but not that expensive in compare to the Dura Ace. If you are not to break your wallet but hoping to get a good brakes then Ultegra can be consider

The Review
These brakes can lock up your wheels, so be careful especially during emergency stops. It can also result in you flying over the bars (end over) if you jam the front brakes too hard.

I love them.
