The Shimano Ultegra 6800 shifters are completely redesigned compared to its predecessor. With an eye on ergonomics these levers are almost identical to the more expensive Dura Ace 9000 shifters. The shifting performances are improved thanks to the polymer-coated derailleur cables.
The shifters offer more 'feel' thanks to a short shift movement and an obvious click when shifting. For cyclists with small hands there is an option to adjust the reach of the levers with 10mm.
