The Review
Overall Shimano build one of the best brake without breaking one wallet. The 105 brake is a great brake in compare to Dura Ace or Ultegra, just the weight different to be consider, anything lower then 105, braking respond and force of clamping will also be of influence to the brake quality.
Love the 105 still and had these on my Shimano AeroDynamic Vintage bike.

Strengths
Good braking force and responsive

Weaknesses
A bit more heavy then Ultegra

" Comfortable Budget Calipers "


Overall Rating

The Review
Grips well, and on a fast descent just yesterday I manage to stop in a much lesser distance than what would be possible with my previous pair of brakes. The 105 brake pads may not be as gripping as the Ultegra one, but it's decent enough for road biking. If you want better braking power, swap the 105 pads for Ultegra pads.

Strengths
Relatively good grips; price is decent; good smooth spring action (in comparison to Tiagra and Promax)

Weaknesses
Weight? But it doesn't really matters that much to me.

Duration of product used
Less than 1 month

Bike Setup
Wheeler 3100, with an assortment of parts ranging from SIS to Ultegra
