Shimano's most aerodynamic brakes

Go ahead and think of another top-tier component group that provides a direct mount brake caliper. We're waiting. Well, we understand that you can't because it doesn't exist outside of the beautiful Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9010 Direct Mount Brake Calipers. Made to fit seamlessly with your TT or aero frameset, the BR-9010 calipers are Shimano's greatest aerodynamic brake offering in its history. With a jaw-dropping design, improved modulation, and increased power, there's no other logical choice for your aero-rig.

For the Dura-Ace BR-9010 Brake Calipers, Shimano started from the ground up, and the result is a revelation. Finally using a 'true' dual-pivot design, BR-9010 deviates from the Shimano legacy of the mounting bolt doubling as a second pivot. Instead, 9010 has a direct mount design to fit contemporary time trial and aero road frames. The brake arms now reside symmetrically over the wheel, and work independent of the mounting plate because of an integrated rolling cam. Shimano kept the cable stop off to the side, but with the new dual-pivot design, any cable pull applies an equal tension to both arms. Taking a step even further, the arms operate on a twin bearing system that drastically reduces pivot friction, and thus makes brake application from the levers a light, predictable, and powerful experience. In fact, Shimano makes the claim that BR-9010 has 10% more power in the caliper than their 7900 counterparts.

The arm placement is now closer to the rim, which, when coupled with an equal pull on each side of the rim, drastically increases modulation. Actuation from the levers is lighter than ever, and with Shimano's new low-friction, polymer-coated BC-9000 cables, you can expect a braking experience unlike anything Shimano has offered before. And for all of you running larger tires, Shimano will also be producing a thinner brake pad option to accommodate up to 28mm tires.

Lighter operation, stronger modulation, and an aesthetic design that's unmistakably Dura-Ace, the BR-9010 is as good as Shimano gets.

The Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9010 Direct Mount Brake Calipers are available in one size and one color. The calipers are recommended for use with the Shimano ST-9000 STI Levers.

Unanswered Question

I have a 2010 cannondale cyclocross red that I run with road tires. Will these brakes fit in place of cantis?

Is the BR9010, 6810 and 5810 compatible...

Is the BR9010, 6810 and 5810 compatible with Sram Shifters?

They will work but apparently SRAM/shimano have different pull ratios. Considering SRAM has no direct mount brakes, I used these with no issues. I couldn't tell the difference.

Will I be able to use this brake to replace the Bontragers on my 2013 Trek Madone without modification?

Hello Sir, could you replace de bontrager rear brake for madone with the dura ace br9010. I would like to do the same. Thank you very much for your help.

Yes you can use these without modifications. They work better than the stock Madone brakes.

Rear Brake Caliper

Here is the rear brake caliper for Shimano Dura-Ace BR-9010

Rear Brake Caliper

Still trying to figure out how this one compares to the original model in a madone. Can you post a pic of the other sides and a lateral pic, there should be limit screws on the side if I am not wrong.
