Anyone knows or tried if a 28c tyres fits in the dura ace 9000 brake calipers
(I know it says supports up to 25c officially)
And what are other options for a light and reliable brake caliper to consider? (Apart from the new 9100)
Not sure if SRAM force or Red ones works too??

*My frame can fit up to 30c tyres

Thanks for the insight!

A real 28 should fit, but nothing really bigger. Michelin Power Comp 25 (27 wide, 25,5 high) clears, but not that much clearance left... $$ option would be EE-brakes.

I have fit tires measuring just over 30 actual on my Tarmac with standard mount BR9000s. Open Corsa G+ 28mm on a 21mm internal rim.

Great! thanks so much
how much clearance you have? like 2-3mm?
I have the exact same tire on a 18mm internal rim, on a CAAD12

I have Schwalble Pro 28's mounted on Dura Ace WH-9000 C24 with BR-9000. They clear just fine.

I suppose it also has to do with the frame itself, especially where the brakes are mounted on the brake bridge / fork. See page 4, a couple of pics of mine, new Michelin power comp 25 on recent bora's. Frame is an 15' Addict.
