Product Details

Shimano Tiagra BR-R451 Dual Pivot Brake

The Tiagra label means you can be confident that this is a fine quality mid-level Shimano Super SLR dual pivot brake for road bikes.

  • The calliper's 57mm drop offers more mudguard clearance, compared with the 49mm norm.
  • The Super SLR Dual Pivot design delivers reliable braking power.
  • This low friction design is very responsive and requires just the lightest lever action.
  • The Shimano Super SLR Dual Pivot design is also legendary for keeping the pads equidistant from the rim to help eliminate brake rub.
  • Designed for use with Shimano ST-4600, ST-4603, ST-5700, ST-5703, ST-6700 or ST-7900 Shimano STI levers.
  • Pad washers facilitate brake toe in (that is, setting up the brakes so the front of the pad is slightly closer to the rim than the rear to help prevent brake squeal).
  • Fins at the bottom of the pads make it easier to squeeze them against the rim for initial setup or when you fit a new brake cable.
  • A threaded alloy adjuster makes it easy to tension the cable as the pads wear down.
  • The smooth quick release enables fast and easy wheel removal.
  • Lightweight anodised aluminium construction keeps the weight down to 196g based upon weighing a rear BR-R451 brake calliper at Bike Co-op HQ in April 2013.
