Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-Speed Shifters
In the wake of the success of the 11 Speed Dura Ace 9000 group, Shimano has recently revealed that the 11 Speed sensation was moving down the line to the more affordable Ultegra 6800 group. Inspirations taken from the Dura Ace 9000 group are definite in the new Ultegra 6800 Shifters as they feature ergonomics very identical to the 9000 levers, with small volume shape for better control when riding on the hoods. If you still aren't comfortable, Shimano has included 10mm of additional reach adjustment by using an adjustment screw that lets the rider get dialed in for optimal comfort. Performance of the shifters is also enhanced by pairing it with the new polymer coated, stainless steel cable set for reduced shift lever resistance and improved braking operation. Shimano's Vivid Index technology has been integrated to better define shift engagement by amplifying the feel of the click. Next time your opponent attacks on the switchback, and you must make a quick response, the new Ultegra 6800 Shifters will not let you down!
