RoadmeisterRequires patience and diligence to properly install. Not for the faint of heart. Shift effortlessly and nearly as well as electronic. Feel nice in the hands. Merlin sold at an amazingly low price and delivered quickly to USA.
Helder AlcidesPerfect! I have made some Kms now, and I'm loving them. Precise, little effort needed, what else can we say about the best of the best?
Mr SmithSmooth accurate shifting, great upgrade from ultegra.
Mr YazmanShimano gear systems is the best comparing Sram (but Sram is lighter) so decided functionality over some lightness. I ride Shimano for over 20 years now I have experienced a lot of XT and XTR stuff on mtb and Some Ultegra on the road so it was time for the best for my new Giant TCR advanced, Dura Ace was the way to go, new 9100 were lot more expensive so went for tried and tested solid 9000 series...
Mr BorgComfortable, ergonomic shifters. Perform flawlessly.
Mr AkibaThese are smooth shifters, I upgraded from ultegra and the shifting is much better
Mr FullwoodGreat shifting performance, crisp and reliable!
ShaunGreat quality levers, the overall feel is amazing. It's definitely a step up from Ultegra. I'm also really happy with the cables that come with the levers. The shifting is true, haven't missed a shift yet.
BROOKSFantastic quality product from Shimano, top of the range Dura ace gear changers feel great to use and so so precise, they never miss a gear change and braking feels so crisp and powerful.
Mr YorkeFantastic performance and build quality. Couldn't be happier
HershComfortable, adjustable, great 'action' provides effortless changing
Mr MarshallGreat ergonomics and precision shifting.
Mr MakrypouliasExcellent feel. Inluded cables are very helpfull to reduce frinction. Very pleased with quick gear change without problems
Dr AubertVery good product. A big change compared to my Shimano ultegra 11 speed Levers
Mr niselowSilky smooth shifting, great ergonomics I highly rate this product.
Mr CarlickSmoothest shifting ever. Why go electric when this is so good !!
Dr LepolstatI thought the Dura Ace 7800 were the greatest, however the 9001 shifters are one step above. Smooth quick and easy action both on the gear and brake side. Just fantastic!!!!
Mr BrogdenI bought these to upgrade my old 7800 to 11 speed and I am very impressed. The shift is precise and the ergonomics have moved on considerably since 7800 with the upshift much easier to reach when sprinting on the drops. Very pleased.
Mr IEasy to operate. Especially on wire-pull operation. The shape of lever allows you to push it easily that you need only a bit of finger stroke. It feels just like a di2 lever. The stability of front shifting is outstanding as well. Once you make a releaae-shift on the front, it releases wire to the trimmed position so that even while you are pedaling hard, the chain never gets jammed. Had Andy used it he would have defeated Contador.
Mr PuttickJust what you would expect as far as operation goes - silky smooth, comfortable and good looking. Installation is a little tricky as the hoods are very stiff and need to be pulled right back to allow tightening of the clamp and cable installation. I install everything with a torque wrench and use the manual as a tick list. It's a bit stingy to only provide all the information required online, in the dealer manual, and only include a single (fairly useless) sheet of paper with the product.
Mr Jackson IIA big improvement over my Ultegra shifters. Quick shifting, light effort, great precise braking feel. The slick cables are amazing. They feel as is they should have grease on them but are dry.
ChrisSmoothest shifting ever... Probably the best Road Shifters on the market...
Mr TorosI am using levers with 6800 groupset. Perfect shifting performance. It is not senseless, you can feel shifting but still really light. Only problem was the cables came with levers. 3rd shifting cable housing (for frame to RD) was a bit short.
Mr ChappellNice lever shape compared to older units. Smaller throw on gear levers, feel snappier. Equipped with the new low drag cables.
Mr BaticonVery pleased with these shifters and the DA9000 groupset. The shifting action is very smooth and precise, I found it much better than the Ultegra and SRAM Red. DA brakes are excellent. The shifters have a great finish, hoods are comfortable and lever can be adjusted for reach. Overall, a great product, highly recommended.
MareskiLightest shifting I have experienced. Great product at a good price from Merlin. DA used by the majority of TdeF teams over Sram and Campy. Say no more!
Mr AverySweet feel, no fuss in changing gears. Zero effort.
Mr SheppardProduct was processed and shipped promptly, with good feedback from Merlin, and the price was excellent. Do they work? Shimano. Yes.
