Pros & ConsPros & 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.
|Brake Type||Traditional Rim Brake|
|Bottom Bracket||No, not included|
The Shimano Ultegra R8000 groupset is the successor to the highly popular Shimano Ultegra 6800 series. The R8000 uses virtually all of the technologies first seen with the Dura Ace R9100 groupset. Instantly recognisable features such as the asymmetric crank arm, the rear derailleur with Shadow technology, and the compact front derailleur look like a carbon-copy. What makes the Ultegra R8000 drivetrain different to Dura Ace is predominantly colour, weight, and price. The best shifting performance and stopping power provided by the Shimano Dura Ace R9100 groupset can now be experienced with the new Shimano Ultegra R8000 as well!Read more
