Shimano Ultegra R8170 Disc Brake Caliper
The Ultegra R8170 Disc Brake Caliper from Shimano is the ideal flat-mount hydraulic disc brake caliper for high-performance all-weather braking power and control. Offering exceptional all-condition braking, easy maintenance and hassle-free brake bleeding, this Ultegra caliper is durable, stylish and powerful.
To the delight of riders and mechanics alike, the new Ultegra BR-R8170 caliper delivers enhanced modulation, a quieter brake system, and an easier than ever bleed process.
The Ultegra R8170 disc brake caliper brings a new level of control to the road cycling world with enhanced modulation and a quicker initial braking point. Despite its smaller construction, the system is quieter than ever and easier to maintain.
The fade, which can occur to the disc brake rotor and pad when braking on a long downhill ride, for instance, has a negative impact on the braking performance. Shimano has adopted ICE Technologies disc brake rotor and ICE Technologies pad to realize the cooling technology for consistent performance. The clad disc brake rotor blade, which has a 3 layer-sandwich structure of stainless steel, aluminium and stainless steel, provides better radiation performance. Also, the radiation fin has been adopted for the pad. Moreover, the clad disc brake rotor blade and the radiator fin provide long pad life, less noise, less fade and lightweight.
One Way Bleeding
“ONE WAY BLEEDING” was developed for quick and easy prevention of air in our hydraulic system. We have streamlined the oil route throughout the system to prevent air bubbles from being captured in the system.
