Mr RICEWhat can I say this is the go too cassette that is great for training and all around riding and gives good crisp shifting. Mine is 28-12 and only has one hole closer to the bottom which is okay cause I wanted it mainly for climbing.
Dr LewisThe 34 and 30 tooth sprockets are handy on poorly surfaced climbs. Works with my 6800 gs series mech. Yay!
BrendanI bought the 11-34 cassette to help my aging legs on 20%+ hills. Once I worked out what the extra spacer was for all was good. Paired with 105 5800 rear derailleur without any issue.
TorstenMatched with the semi compact crankset this cassette provides ideal range of gears for the flat bunchie while giving you spinning options when the gradients starts to head upwards
Mr ArslanVery very light. I bought 11-28 version, and can`t believe how durable but light it is.
Mr DunnThis 8000 is even smoother running than the previous Ultegra
PaulLight and cost efficient
JohnGreat product, great price! I climb a lot a hills here in Northern California, few years ago I went with a 11-32, the 11-34 makes the really steep hills a bit easier.
RobertArrived quickly well packaged and as per order. Installed on my bike and working well. Shifting gears is now a dream.
DavidCan`t fault the Ultegra cassettes, clean shifting and excellent durability. Bought this to replace a 6800 cassette which is only just starting to show signs of wear after 5 chains and 10000km. I wouldn`t consider any other product.
Neil SarreTop quality cassette. The 32 being very helpful for an older cyclist with knee issues to spin up the hills
BrendanFinish appears even nicer than 6800. Shifts beautifully with my di2 setup. Recommended.
Mr WeekesAgain smooth and precise. Lighter and an improvement on 105 cassette. Recommended.
Joel LExcellent value. I run the Dura Ace 9100 cassettes and now I`ve added a few of the Ultegra R8000 cassettes to my stable. I have multiple wheelsets and run numerous cassettes. The Dura Ace cassettes are great and a fraction lighter than the Ultegra. However, for the price of the Ultegra you`re getting almost 3-1 in terms of price. In terms of function, I`d say only the most discerning of individuals could pick the difference between the DA and the Ultegra in a "blind" test. It`s not discernably louder, shifts cleanly and crisply and in my opinion cleans up easier and appears brighter than the DA when clean. I`m a few rides in and there`s no meshing issues with the older chains. The functionality is spot on, which is why I keep coming back to Shimano Ultegra. On a cost per use basis, this is as good as it gets.
Mr FieldhouseFirst time out big improvement from the Ultegra 6700, quicker and smoother changing will definitely be putting on my other bikes also not as expensive as the Dura Ace
JonathanDid about 2500 miles on this and the Ultegra chain, rode it all through winter too. With regular cleaning and maintenance, I hadn't noticed that it had worn until the bike shop told me it needed replacing... Typical Shimano quality, smooth and silent shifting 90% of the time.
RobertAlways a great way to save a few bucks without sacrificing performance vs. Dura Ace
Mr RYANUltegra 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.
TonyLove the 14-28 ratio for Winter, no annoying gaps in cogs
Mr ByardA bit expensive but seems to be quieter with smoother shifting especially under load.
AndrewWant an 11-30 cassette, but don't care for the cost of titanium and carbon? Same tooth design as Dura Ace, but all metal, and bomb proof
