New Shimano Stuff – 105 and Ultegra RX

I found this one in my in-tray which I thought was interesting as we see the high-end feature trickle-down continue

Shimano have spiced up the latest 105 offering

Along with a mid-compact 52-36T crankset (adds to existing 50-34T & 53-39T) here are some more options:

  • disk (BR-R7070 calipers, ST-R7020/25) levers) or rim brake options
  • hydraulic dual control levers (ST-R7020)
  • 11 speed rear cassettes eg 11-30 (CS-R7000)
  • the long cage rear derailleur (RD-R7000-GS) can accommodate up to an 11-34T cassette
  • Same aesthetic as Ultegra
  • chain stabilizing rear deraileur for Ultegra RX – RD-RX800/RX805
