A multi-award winning frame, the R872 is hands down the most popular road bike with our customers and staff.
With improved ergonomics, and trickle-down technology from Dura-Ace, the performance from R8000 is increased from the previous incarnation, with it being stiffer and more efficient.
With a new, super stiff 4-arm chainset, that are beefy but attractive, and a striking silver colourway, the new Ultegra R8000 screams power and encourages you to ride harder. A new shifter design improves long distance comfort, and stopping power is improved thanks to sleek dual-pivot caliper brakes.
Ultegra R8000 is the perfect match for the much improved R872 frame.
The frame has been made stiffer in key areas, such as the bottom bracket and chainstays for optimised power transfer, but we have also made it more comfortable by changing the seatpost to a 27.2mm diameter which offers a little more flex.
