Shimano ST-R785 DI2 Hydraulic Disc Brake Di2 E-Tube STI Set – With RS785 Callipers – Pair
The very best in road bike stopping power and all-weather consistency. The Shimano ST-R785 hydraulic disc brakes feature Di2 levers with upgraded BR-RS805 flat mount disc brake callipers for a stealthier look with improved aerodynamics.
The ST-R785 lever offers a comfortable hand position on the hoods and it is here you will notice the biggest difference in braking power with hydraulic discs. You can adjust the reach and free stroke to get the levers just how you like them. Of course, being Di2 you get light touch shifting for smooth, accurate gear shifts every time. The BR-RS785 brake callipers feature cooling fins on the brake pads for improved heat management on even the very longest alpine descents.
All Shimano brakes use mineral oil which is less corrosive and less hazardous than the DOT fluid found in most hydraulic disc brakes.
