What we think

"The best Shimano groupset for the enthusiast who wants pro-performance at a fraction of the cost"

Pros and cons

  • Weighs just 2,297g
  • Neat gear cable tidy on front derailleur
  • Shifting and braking performance very similar to Dura Ace
  • Big jump in cost from Shimano 105, but this is largely justified
