“The excellent Shimano Ultegra R8000 is similar in appearance, performance and setup to Shimano Dura-Ace but without the price tag” – Cycling weekly

“5/5 – Ultegra R8000 presents a host of real improvements over the already excellent 6800 series groupset, performing just as well as Dura-Ace 9100 at the cost of a 260g weight penalty” Bikeradar

“Ultegra R8000 is brilliant. Small improvements abound, and the brakes alone are a big improvement. It’s just so much performance for the money. Its function is so close to Dura Ace R9100 and its price is so much less.” – Lavelocita.cc
