  • . Shimano’s 105 R7000 Groupset is one of the most eagerly anticipated groupsets of recent years. Smooth, crisp and precise shifting combined with reliable and powerful braking makes this an incredibly efficient groupset R7000 Crankset. With the 105 R7000 Compact Chainset, Shimano has found the perfect balance between weight, efficiency and comfort without sacrificing stiffness or power-transfer. It has been optimised to ensure the maximum power-transfer from rider to road is achieved and thanks to modern technologies, they have achieved a wider gear pitch so it is fully compatible with standard road frames and the modern 135mm O.L D. spaced Disc Brake frames. This crankset design pushes advancements in modern drivetrain performance and provides levels of efficiency and comfort that until now have not been achieved Crankset Features: Material:¬†Crank Arms, Chainrings: Aluminium; Axle: Steel Bolt Circle Diameter:¬†110mm Q-Factor:¬†146mm Bottom Bracket Standard:¬†HollowTech II Chainring Gear Ratio:¬†50-34T Compatible Chain:¬†HG-EV 11 speed / HG-X11 Drivetrain Speed:¬†11 speedR7000 Double Shifter Set. The 11-Speed Shimano 105 R7000 Shifter Set is the evolution in Shimano mechanical drivetrain performance. Borrowing trickle-down technology from the Dura-Ace and Ultegra high-end competition shift levers, these levers provide crisp, super-smooth shifting and brake performance that feels absolutely superb to use Re-Designed, Enhanced and Optimised. The internal shifting mechanism has been re-designed and enhanced to provide smoother operation and more precise actuation when shifting between gears, even when under load. The lever features a greater reach-adjustment range with very easy access to the inner shift cables when the time comes to maintain/adjust. This new system provides a fast and easy shifting experience, which ensures that race performance is always at 100%, and as a bonus, Shimano has fine-tuned the front lever shifting curve, which makes for a much lighter front derailleur shifting compared to previous models.

No matter what type of bike product your buying, from the simple accessories through to the full setup of your custom built road bike, there are lots of important considerations that you should take into account, especially when you’re shopping online and unable to test the product first. This is especially true when you’re buying products like Groupsets.

Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s Shimano 105 R7000 Groupset or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision.

Note down this list of key features that your product must have, that way when you’re comparing alternatives you have a starting point to decide whether one product meets your needs or not.

Price is the next and probably one of the most important factors of a purchase, so it’s really worthwhile spending a bit of time analysing the price of Shimano 105 R7000 Groupset and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from Shimano.

The next stage we went on to, was to look at the price of products from the brand: Shimano. The average price was £98.07 and we found that the price varies right from as little as £0.49 up to £2089.99 with Shimano products.

And finally we thought it would be good to give you an idea of Shimano products that appear specifically in the Groupsets category. So you can see that the price of Shimano 105 R7000 Groupset at £399.99 is great value considering the average price of Shimano Groupsets is £560.03 and the price varies from £4.99.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that we managed to find Shimano 105 R7000 Groupset during our price scan of several cycle retailers, for the amazing price of £399.99 which represents a £196.00 or 33% saving against RRP.
