The latest evolution of Shimano Ultegra, the R8000, has arrived. As well as a host of developments which improve user ergonomics, the R8000 Groupset includes subtle tweaks to adapt to current trends and ensure compatability with the wide spectrum of riders and bikes today. The Ultegra R8000 components share aesthetics with Dura Ace 9100, the technology has trickled down too, albeit at a much more cost effective price point.
Superb quality groupset at a really competitve price.
Merlin ensured quick delivery and all the parts were well packed.
I used this to build up a cannondale caad12 and the groupset matches the frame in terms of quality and looks. If I had all the money in the world, I might be tempted to by Campag, but Shimano Ultegra probably offers the best balance of quality, performance and value.
Highly recommend this kit at this price.
There's no doubt about the new Shimano Ultegra R8000. Efficient, ultra-reliable, and fast. Installation and setup is a breeze. What more can you ask for... Dura ace???
The new Ultegra enables stress-free riding. The outlook is modern and cool. The shift change seems to be quicker than the previous model. Easy maintenance is another strong point. I am not a specialist of bicycle, but I could easily build the new Ultegra on my bicycle frame set.
Love this groupset, it is every bit as good as my Dura ace 9000 groupset. Merlin had the best price and I had it in my hands in 4 days I live in the United States, top notch customer service,
New R8000 Groupset is really good and easy to shift especially the front derailleur. Even the brakes are more better and feels lighter. I also like the finish and color of the R8000 groupset.
Looks bit industrial compared to campag but fairly easy to fit and definitely works better than ultegra 6800, front mech especially good. Switched chain to better kmc x11 el though.
I have never been disappointed with Shimano group sets. The latest Ultegra group set has some nice little extras: Have only had it fitted for a week but
- Braking power improved
- Cables nicely tucked away.
These are my 1st impressions, I'm sure I will find more subtle improvements as time goes on
