The centre piece of the Ultegra R8000 groupset is the Hollowtech II Chainset. The chainset offers weight reduction without sacrificing stiffness compared to it's predecessor and supports a wide range of gear combinations to suit the fastest downhill section and the steepest mountain pass. It also looks the business, taking styling cues from the range-topping Dura-Ace model. The shifters feature a redesigned internal shifting unit that reduces resistance and makes the transition from one gear to the next a seamless experience, even when put under loads. Weighing 440 grams per pair, the shifters feature an adjustable reach and have been ergonomically redesigned for improved ergonomic comfort in your hand, so you can benefit from better all-around usability.
Providing quick, smooth and responsive shifting, the Ultegra R8000 11-Speed Rear Derailleur works to give you quick, accurate shifts and excellent drivetrain efficiency. Featuring integrated Shadow RD Technology with its race-proven, low-profile design, the rear derailleur is more compact and fits closer to the frame, ensuring less damage in a crash. The R8000 front derailleur evolves to provide an ultra-smooth shifting action that flawlessly moves your chain up and down whenever required. with zero delay, you can enjoy a shift that is crisp and concise.
The lightweight 11-speed HG-EV cassette features a rigid alloy sprocket carrier for reduced weight and better shifting performance, even under the most demanding gear changes. Hyperglide EV sprockets have been designed to reduce weight with improve teeth shaping providing accurate shifting and reduced wear. The chain is designed to work in tandem with the cassette for smooth shifts and maximum durability. The Ultegra bottom bracket uses a larger axle and wider bearing placement which provides maximum stiffness, whilst the minimal bearing interface gives super smooth rotation and increased durability. Enhanced with a new, sleek design, the Ultegra caliper brake has narrower gaps between the arms for a reduced profile and compatibility with 28c tyres. The stabiliser between the axles improves the braking performance by delivering clear contact to bring you to a balanced stop.
The Shimano Ultegra R8000 11-Speed Groupset offers the biggest bang for your buck in road cycling, providing the same slick performance as Dura-Ace while offering improved durability, all it really gives away is a few grams in weight. If you ask us, that's small price to pay in order to get the best value road bike groupset available.
