Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters Gray Set

Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters Gray, Set

Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 STI Shifters Gray, Set - We’ve always felt like the control levers on a road bike are akin to the central nervous system and must perform complex and precise tasks such as firing off shifts with proper indexing to provide just enough cable tension or slack to initiate a clean shift or pulling the right ratio of cable for controlled braking and rider feedback. We would place some heavy bets that most riders wouldn’t be able to distinguish between the two in back-to-back. Most of the 8000 control levers share material makeup with the 9100 group. An all new look, larger gear range, and smoother, more precise shifting are the hallmarks of the redesigned ultegra group. A group is only as good as the sum of its parts however we’ve put enough miles on this new ultegra group to realize that it is the best version we’ve ridden,. The ultegra st-r8000 sti shifters have enough dna from the new 9100 shifters–themselves perhaps the pinnacle of mechanical shifting–that you will have a hard time separating them as twins. Because it’s a serious drivetrain for serious cyclists. This latest version performs so flawlessly that unless you are just dead-set on dura-ace, you should seriously consider the ultegra 8000 group. Shimano’s ultegra is often thought of as a budget racer’s group or one that was worthy to put on a top tier frame helping to bring the total price down. A slight increase in weight and a few bearings substituted for bushings are the most notable exceptions. Shimano’s mastery of shift indexing allows it to create shifting action that is more positive yet feels lighter and requires less effort. This group is damn good at both. The improved ergonomics and super-light-shift and brake action make these ultegra st-r8000 sti shifters a perfect perch for tuesday night worlds or a weekend double century. The new 8000 group is backward-compatible with ultegra 6800, but to reap the most benefits of the new control levers, we recommend pairing them with the new series derailleurs and brake calipers.

Shimano CS-6700 Ultegra Bicycle Cassette (10-Speed, 11/28T) - And, they’re heavier in the center of a wheel, where their effect is negligible. Significantly cheaper than the top-line dura-ace offerings, they’re also more durable, and only slightly heavier. Shimano’s ultegra-level cassettes are one of the gems of cycling components. Shimano’s improved its shifting ramps on this iteration, too, meaning the fabulous shift quality you expect from the japanese component giant is even better than you remember.

Shimano Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters Gray Set

Shimano Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters Gray, Set

Shimano Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters Gray, Set - The shift buttons are easy to reach both from the hoods and in the drops and, again trickled down from dura ace, have a more positive click and are more distinguishable between upshift and downshift than previous versions. What we love most about di2 is that shifting feels akin to clicking a mouse, only requiring 2mm of movement. The ultegra di2 sti levers are compatible with shimano e-tube components and accessories including derailleurs, battery, junction boxes and wires. Befitting riders with bigger and smaller hands alike, a screw reach adjustment places the brake levers just where you need them for comfort and maximum control. Shimano even went so far as to create a new rubber compound and tread for the hoods that is designed to reduce vibration and improve grip. Borrowing heavily from the top-tier dura ace levers, the r8050’s are redesigned with improved ergonomics in mind. Because much less space is needed to house electronic buttons versus mechanical bits, the hoods are much more compact, lighter, and the lower profile feels great, perfect because that is where we spend most of our time while riding. Remote sprinter and climbing satellite shifters are available separately that plug into these shifters, allowing further customization. They say the third times a charm and shimano continues to bring di2 to the masses with the much-refined gen 3 ultegra di2 st-r8050 11-speed shifters. The e-tube software allows you to fully customize the group including shifting speed, number of shifts per click or. This requires much less focus and effort, especially for front shifting, so you can concentrate on riding and is much appreciated on the battlefield. Exceptional electronic shifting and powerful braking, when operating the firm’s slr calipers, is at your fingertips and the value and performance of this group are simply remarkable. Gloves or no gloves, the tactile grip is amazing and our hands refused to slip even climbing out of the saddle on the hottest of rides.

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray Braze-On

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On

Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On - The fd-r8000 also includes a cable tension setting adjustment at the derailleur for a more precise and ease setup. Word is this design was born when shimano challenged its engineers to make a mechanical version of ultegra and dura-ace that performed well enough and was still able to hold its own against its electronic siblings, particularly the front derailleurs. The design worked well, but the industry trend towards wider tires and disc brakes pushed the rear end spacing out to 135 or 142mm. The fd-r8000 front derailleur is constructed from a. To address this, shimano engineered a new design that increases the clearance between the front derailleur and rear tire and increases shifting responsiveness with more flexible cable routing. Everything we love about the dura-ace mechanical front derailleur has carried over to the new ultegra version. Shimano claims that the new link construction matches the force curve of the hand more naturally to reduce effort at the end of shifting. The shift throw is reduced and the effort required to throw the chain to the big ring, even (or especially) while you’re exhausted and trying to bridge up, is reduced. Shimano even sent a guide with each derailleur to gauge which way to run the cable to the anchor bolt, but the evolving rear hub spacing made this an untenable solution. The derailleurs longer arms, which house the cable anchor bolt and debuted on the ultegra 6800 and dura ace 9000 front derailleurs, allow for a lighter shift as the anchor point gives the cable increased leverage. Shimano redesigned it to have a lighter shift action, increased frame and tire clearance, and to work better with chain lines seen on road bikes with disc brakes and shorter chainstays. Cable routing was more particular with the longer arm derailleurs. The more compact design doesn’t come at a sacrifice of shift feel. The trickle down of dura-ace 9100 technology to ultegra r8000 11-speed drivetrains continues with the fd-r8000 front derailleur.

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-6870 Rear Derailleur Gray Mid Cage

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-6870 Rear Derailleur Gray, Mid Cage

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-6870 Rear Derailleur Gray, Mid Cage - In the event of an accident, the rear mechanism will actually compress and tuck away. Taking its cue from the dura-ace 9070, the profile of the 6870 has been trimmed, making it leaner than the previous ultegra di2 rear mech. Finally, the 6870 rear derailleur has built-in crash protection. Shimano’s ultegra di2 rd-6870 rear derailleur features much of the same level of performance as the dura-ace group without the podium-topping price tag. Shimano’s electronic shifting features e-tube technology, which allows you to customize shifting speed and even program how many gears the rear derailleur shifts through when holding the shift button down. The 6870 di2 rear now also has 11-speed shifting capability with sleeker, more professional-looking wiring and a mid-cage version that can accommodate a 32t cog in the rear.

Shimano Ultegra Di2 FD-6870 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On

Shimano Ultegra Di2 FD-6870 Front Derailleur Gray, Braze-On - And then we rode di2 bikes. A confession we’ve always loved shimano’s front derailleurs. It’s among our favorite components, and the ultegra 6870 is a fortunate beneficiary of this technology and design. They’ve always worked flawlessly and quietly. The precision of the di2 front derailleurs cannot be overstated. They auto-trim, eliminating chain rub, and they adjust themselves when they’re out of alignment. They work so phenomenally well, so precisely, and so quietly that we often forget they’re there.

 

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset Gray 175x5236

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset Gray, 175×52/36

Shimano Ultegra 6800 Crankset Gray, 175×52/36 - The new crankset design also standardizes the bolt circle diameter, so it accommodates standard or compact chainrings without having to spring for a completely new crankset. While the ultegra 6800 drivetrain’s two extra speeds may be the most noticeable upgrade, in truth, the entire crankset has been redesigned to follow in its big brother’s footsteps. The ultegra 6800 crankset may not be as light as the dura-ace model, but it still checks-in at a race-worthy 765g. The biggest change is the use of a four-arm, rather than the traditional five-arm, spider, which saves a claimed 26g. Few cranks can comfortably straddle every aspect of the mutable cyclist’s life like shimano’s ultegra 6800 crankset, which brings the stiff hollowtech ii design of dura-ace to a price that appeals to riders outside of the peloton. You’re able to switch gearing from a 55-42t down to a 46-36t in a matter of a few minutes. We’ve all got multiple cycling lives, ranging from racing road and ‘cross to riding charity sportives and all the long training miles that go into preparing for them.

 

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-R8050 Rear Derailleur Gray Long

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-R8050 Rear Derailleur Gray, Long

Shimano Ultegra Di2 RD-R8050 Rear Derailleur Gray, Long - Shimano’s excellent e-tube software allows total customization including shifting speed, the number of cogs shifted with a press and hold of the button, and even what button does what. This profile places it closer inbound to the frame and tucks the derailleur under the cassette. The gs version can be used with dura ace di2 if you want to use a 32t or 34t cassette with a dura ace group as that group only offers one short cage rear derailleur option. Shimano even employs a saving mechanism that disengages the rear derailleur so it can handle side impacts without damaging the component. The rd-8050’s new geometry allows for shorter throws that result in faster and more precise shifts even over a wider range 11-34 cassette. This protects the derailleur in the event of a crash and in general from getting banged around, so it remains better aligned making shifts smooth, quick, and accurate. Shimano’s refinements to the latest ultegra di2 group is truly remarkable and while we always fancy a full dura ace build, we’d be hard pressed if we could decipher a difference in performance. A note on the cage length shimano offers the 8050 derailleur in two cage versions, an ss version that works up to a 30t cog and a medium cage gs version that works up to a 34t cog. Derailleurs using spring and cable tension to move the chain from cog to cog almost seems archaic compared to electronic rear derailleurs, where the highly innovative digital technology of sending electronic signals to a motor to precisely position the chain exactly where it is needed on the cassette. We are smitten with the performance of shimano di2. Shifts happen much quicker and with less effort. That makes sense since ultegra gets dura ace trickle down technology and for rear derailleurs, the rd-r8050 borrows heavily from the firm’s top-end dura ace rd-r9150 including the shadow low profile design.
