Shimano BR-5600

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The nicely designed brake of the new 105 group is set in a smooth and fluent shape. The dual-pivot design realized a lightweight, compact and durable braking system with minimal deflection and maximum durability. The brake has an instantaneous braking response while assuring longer service life. Optimum braking response is achieved with a slight toe-in of the brake shoe.
