The Shimano Dura-Ace TT disc brake with ST-R9180 Di2 bar ends shifter/brake lever and BR-R9270 brake caliper

This disc brake from Shimano's top racing bike group Dura-Ace is designed for use in time trial competitions. It consists of the ST-R9180 electronic hydraulic shift/brake lever for handlebar end mounting and the BR-R9270 flat mount brake caliper.

The ST-R9180 triathlon and time trial Dual Control lever is originally part of the Dura-Ace R9100 2x11-speed groupset, but can be reprogrammed to 2x12-speed using the E-Tube platform. It shifts electronically by cable and brakes hydraulically. The cassette is easy to shift up and down using the easily accessible button on the inside, while the Shimano Synchro Shift function automatically coordinates the rear and front derailleurs. Note that the model is only compatible with the older EW-SD50 power cable, so you will need the EW-AD305 conversion adapter to connect to the Dura-Ace R9200 group components. ST-R9180 is suitable for handlebars that have an inner diameter of 19 to 22.5 mm and are made of aluminium or have aluminium inserts. The grip width can be adjusted with the help of a 2 mm hex wrench. The lever is made of lightweight aluminium and carbon. It is features the Multi Shift function for shifting through any number of gears with programmable shifting speed.

The BR-R9270 Dura-Ace caliper is a one-piece Mono-Body design. Compared to the Ultegra version, this saves over 20 grams of weight at the rear and front and increases the stiffness even more. The brake pads have more free space than in the previous model, which prevents grinding of the brake rotor and reduces noise. The braking power of the two plastic pistons is tuned for competition use. In addition, the BR-R9270 earns points with a simple bleed process thanks to One-Way Bleeding technology.

The Dura-Ace TT disc brake comes with a brake hose and with Ice-Tech resin pads, which ensure particularly good heat dissipation due to their cooling fins. However, you can also ride with them using conventional pads.

STI Dual Control
Shimano Total Integration (STI) means the combination of braking and shifting functions in one lever, which increases safety when riding. By refining the technology, it became possible to make shifting so smooth at the front and rear that they can be triggered with just one finger. Shimano calls such levers Dual Control Levers (DCL).

Digital Integrated Intelligence (Di2)
Di2 systems are the electronic shifting systems from Shimano. They are based on the SEIS, the Shimano Electronic Intelligent System, which takes over the index shifting function from the mechanical components, only via power cables or radio signals and not via a Bowden cable. Shifting is done by simply pressing a button. This has the advantage that no great effort is required, your concentration on the ride is not disturbed and operation is easy even with cold hands. In addition, the electronic gear changes are very fast and highly precise. There is also no risk of a defective circuit due to dirty cables or other problems. You can adjust individual settings via the E-Tube Project, such as adjusting the shifting speed, the number of shifting operations per button press or the Synchro or Semi-Synchro shifting function. Shimano offers an app for this purpose. Gear maintenance and firmware updates are also done via E-Tube, with the bike connected to a PC running the appropriate E-Tube software for more extensive workshop work.

One-Way Bleeding
One Way Bleeding is a technique used on Shimano calipers that facilitates brake bleeding. The hose routing has been optimised so that no air bubbles remain in the brake calliper. In combination with the funnel, the brake can be bled cleanly and easily.
