Shimano 105 5800 Road Bike Gear Levers - 11 Speed. The new compact shape of the levers can be adjusted for hand size and come with polymer coated cables as standard.
The Shimano 5800 has gone 11 Speed for the latest incarnation of the 105. The 5800 has been inspired by the innovations of the more upper end Shimano Ultegra and Dura Ace; you can see the technological influences across the design of the 5800 components. More advanced and lighter than its predecessors and with a more eye catching design, the 5800 promises high performance and is one of the latest cycling must haves.
Slim ergonomically designed 11-speed 105 Dual Control Levers
Ergonomic short shift arc follows natural hand movement with inward shift stroke distance reduced for rapid and precise gear changes
Brake lever pivots have been positioned to increase power and improve ergonomics when riding on the hoods
Tuneable reach adjusters enable custom fitment for all hands up to 10 mm
Comes complete Polymer coated cables and silicon greased outer casing to further reduce shift friction and increase service life
To be used in conjunction with either FD-5800 or FD-6800
Purchased as an upgrade from a basic Shimano 9 speed set up to the 105 5800 11 speed I am delighted so far with the performance of these brake lever gear shifter combo, it's early days but everything is so far running smooth and a vast improvement over my last groupset shifters. I feel that this was well worth the transition and at a value any cyclist can invest in and be rewarded with an essential component that doesn't break the bank but looks so good and functions like a much more expensive gear lever set.
?þ here but worth a whole lot more IMHO - Happy days.
Replacement levers delivered quickly and well packed. As advertised, genuine Shimano spare parts. Bought to replace broken 4 year old LH shifter , but both fitted. Work well with existing drivetrain, with enhanced shifting owing to new levers and cables
Best bang for your buck out there. Smooth shifting and Merlin had by far the best price and customer service.
Just as described, slick, class, terrific price. What more do you require? Excellent bit of kit for a new build. Shimano quality shines through. Cables included as well. For the money, you can't get better.
I bought these to replace a right shifter that was written off in a recent crash. They offer amazing value for money, with very smooth and easy shifting compared to lower-end groupsets. Overall, I'd highly recommend the investment in some 105 components if you're considering upgrading.
These can't be beat at this price. I can't see paying double for Ultegra when the difference is barely noticeable, if at all.
Indexed well and easy to use, these make setting up the bike easy, easy to operate and handle at a great price point.
105 gear levers, not much to say about them is there? The shape is good and the functionality is exactly as promised. Not the lighters nor the heaviest of the bunch.
Got these new gear shifters and it feels like I have a new bike
Really impressed with these. Massive improvement over the Sora ones they replaced
The Shimano 105 ST-5800 Road Bike Gear Levers are great. They are like the previous Ultegra in performance. Shifters come with a gear selector cable inner already fitted to the unit. They also have a trim feature so you can half shift to stop the chain misalignment or those big offset gears, ie large front chain ring to large cassette gear. Easy to fit, nice to use - you can't go wrong.
Great stuff work a treat , fitted as a replacement for worn 105 kit, added the derailleurs and all went on my old Jalopy- now running like a dream!
Excellent shifting performance at a great price. Mine came supplied with plenty of gear cable, I had about 30cm left to cut off. Unfortunately I didn't quite have enough brake cable due to running mechanical disks, but this came with inners and outers as well as end caps
Excellent, very soft and light with a very good finish
Just as good as the higher end shifters and a fraction of the cost.
Quick and efficient delivery, Levers are exactly as expected. Brakes smooth and shifting precise. Only criticism is I have disc brakes and cables were not long enough
Feels nice on the hand, shifting is done with minimal force and easily accessible from the hood or the drops.
I upgraded to the 105 5800 11speed set from my Tiagra 10 speed set and what a huge difference. Shifting is extremely smooth and fast, and the routing of the cable in the bar tape is much cleaner.
The new version of these levers has an even nicer feel than the old. Very comfortable for my medium sized hands with a nice light action. Thoroughly recommended.
Great shifters. Feel exactly the same as 6800 shifters I have used. Good value.
The most comfortable shifters I have ever used. I am used to SRAM double tap and I loved those until I tried these
