Pros & Cons
Pros & Cons
- This group set shifts very well, even when it gets muddy.
- Due to the sleek design of the group set, your bike will look really fast!
- Parts are made of aluminium and the Ultegra tool kit is therefore slightly heavier than the Dura-Ace version.
The new Ultegra R8000 provides noticeably improved stopping power because of the ergonomic design of the shifters paired to the wider brake calipers. Working in tandem with the optimised front- and rear derailleur, you’ll be shifting through gears even more fluently and faster than with the 6800 shifters.
The asymmetric Shimano Ultegra R8000 crankset takes its design from the Dura Ace R9100. This shape ensures optimal power transfer and allows for a more efficient pedalling motion. The Hollowtech technology has been used to create this crankset which enables Shimano to offer the best balance between weight and stiffness.
The technology used for the Shimano R8000 front derailleur has resulted in a considerably more compact appearance. This change has also made adjustability and shifting speeds considerably more efficient. Particularly the former had a lot of room for improvement. An adjuster has been built into the derailleur, meaning it takes a lot less effort to set up the proper cable tension for your front derailleur.
The Shimano Ultegra R8000 Shadow rear derailleur has a narrower and more aligned position directly under the cassette. This provides both an aerodynamic advantage as well as a more protected location in the event of a crash. It’s also possible to use a direct mount attachment which makes swapping your rear wheel even easier. 2 technologies which have been used in mountain bike rear derailleurs for several years now, and something Shimano has decided to carry over to their road bike groupsets as well.
The Shimano Ultegra R8000 brake calipers have been given a wider opening with more clearance for tyres up to 30 mm. The cable tensioner has also been given a more aerodynamic design. The lever-function has also been further improved to apply more stopping power to wider rims.

Great groupset at an affordable price. Mounting is easy and the only downside is that the paint will scrape of easily if anything touches it, but not more than on competing products. Durability is second to none.
Paint is easy to scratch
