SHIMANO ULTEGRA 6800 series, introduced in 2013, responded to such trends of the times.

Will ultegra R8000 work with 6800?

Worthy of note: the new R8000 components are all cross-compatible with the previous 6800 generation and just about any other Shimano 11-speed mechanical groupset. This means that if you’re on a recent 11-speed Shimano road groupset, you can mix and match many of the components reviewed here.

What is the difference between Ultegra 6800 and R8000?

Shimano boasts that, “At its lightest set up (Di2 with mechanical braking) Ultegra R8000 weighs 4,071g, which is an 84.5g saving over Ultegra 6800.” Okay, but that 84.5g saving includes wheels and pedals, and many people will already have favourite wheels and pedals.

What speed is Ultegra 6800?

Ultegra 6800 has a rider tuned drivetrain. Rider tuned means that riders can individually choose a large variety of gearing options for all kinds of riding, whether you ride races, Gran Fondo’s, sportives or cyclocross. The Ultegra cassette is going 11-speed. From 11-23T all the way to 11-32T.

When did Shimano introduce hollowtech?

In 2003, Shimano introduced Hollowtech, the first external bottom bracket. It threaded into a 68mm shell and integrated a 24mm spindle into the driveside crankarm. The two-piece crank was new to the road, but once again, it was borrowed BMX technology from the ’80s.

When did Shimano introduce 11 speed?

Shimano has released news of the latest update to its venerable 105 groupset for the 2015 model year. The new version – 5800 – becomes 11 speed, which is big news but far from the end of the story.

Is Ultegra worth it over 105?

Conclusion. There is no longer any real technological difference between 105 and Ultegra, and the only real difference is that Ultegra is a lighter groupset.

Is Dura-Ace worth it over Ultegra?

Even if you are a serious racer, the Ultegra is a great option. The Dura-Ace, however, is an incredible groupset. Its performance is unrivaled and, despite the cost, there is a reason it’s a go-to for pro racers. If a few grams of weight doesn’t matter to you, opt for the Ultegra.

What is the latest Ultegra groupset?

We’ve finally got our hands on Shimano’s new Ultegra R8100 groupset. Announced back in August 2021 alongside the flagship Dura-Ace R9200, the new Ultegra brings 12-speed, semi-wireless and electronic-only shifting to Shimano’s second-tier road groupset.

Are Shimano Ultegra any good?

The Shimano Ultegra has one of the smoothest drag systems I’ve ever tested on a spinning reel. I know that sounds crazy because of the super-luxury spinning reels out there that cost $300 and up but this drag system just feels totally different than most I’ve tested throughout my career.

How good is Shimano Ultegra?

What’s the difference between 105 and Ultegra?

Which Shimano gear is best?
