Upgrades from Shimano do not come often, so this is big news for the cycling community!

With the new update of the Ultegra R8200, Shimano is rising the high performance of the exsistant Ultegra with a hand full of improvements:

- Semi Wireless connection
- 12 speed cassette
- Smartphone application 
- Single, Wide Range derailleur
-10% wider disc brake clearance

Shimano wasn’t going to go wireless unless it yielded faster shifting, and the new Shimano-developed wireless Di2 processing technology allows for exactly that, much faster in fact. By the brand’s own measurement, the new Dura-Ace R9200 wireless system offers 58-percent faster rear shifting and 45-percent faster front shifting than the last generation Dura-Ace R9100 Di2, a fully wired group says Peloton magazine.

The pinnacle of road bike component technology,The DURA-ACE groupset is the result of Shimano’s ongoing passion for deveopment. DURA-ACE is used by the majority of pro-teams and has countless World Tour vicotries in its palmeres.

What our mechanics are thinking:

Nobody knows our bike better than our Production Manager, Martin.

"I think the release of the new Dura Ace and Ultegra is a big step in the right direction. The new groupset is a lot sleeker and more minimalistic. The front and rear derailleur are where the big changes are: gone are the clunky and chunky pieces which make the bike look more streamlined, and the installation has also been made much easier with less cables.

Having just the single, wide range derailleur design that will reach over all cassettes up to 34t makes it easier to adapt your bike to whatever riding style you prefer. If you ever want easier gears for your mixed-terrain adventures or closer range for racing, the new Di2 covers all angles.

The small changes to the brake calipers are also a welcome upgrade, featuring a sleeker design. Another nice detail is the change to the bleeding port, which will make service a lot easier.
