Shimano Ultegra R8000 11 Speed Double Groupset
Ultegra is evolving. Shimano’s new and updated Ultegra R8000 11-speed Groupset has landed and it encourages you to ride harder with superior ergonomics.
Shimano have sprinkled Ultegra R8000 with great deal of trickle down technology from the high pro-level Dura-Ace groups which increases its performance and makes R8000 stiffer and more efficient than the Ultegra 6800 it supercedes.
One of the most distinctive advances with R8000 is the new, super stiff Hollowtech 4-arm crankset which has been race proven in the Dura-Ace range and now is offered for the marginal gains benefit of Ultegra riders. The crank arms have the attractively beefy yet light design and stealthy black looks of Dura-Ace models and scream increased power output.
The Ultegra shifters have been given a redesign in order to improve their ergonomics – they are slimmer for better grip and comfort. The rubber hoods are textured and the lever blade has a more pronounced kink at the top for better control just like Dura-Ace.
The full range of Ultegra R8000 choices will make it highly customisable for your riding style and needs.
