Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake Specification
- . The Dura-Ace R9170 Road Disc Brake combines the Di2 9170 shifters with the Hydraulic 9170 brake calipers for a combination of smooth and speedy shifting with powerful and efficient braking. This kit comes pre-bled and ready to use with shifter, hose, caliper and pads. The 9170 shifters feature an ideal ergonomic shape that is comfortable in the hand and similar in size to mechanical braking versions of the shifter. The shift paddles now also feature a more defined “click” for confidence in shifting and to prevent mis-shifts. E-Tube compatibility means that the shift paddles can be customised to suit the rider. The 9170 shifters now include Synchro-shift technology that automatically moves the rear derailleur when the front ring is changed or moves the front chainring with the rear shifts to optimise chainline and drivetrain efficiency. The 9170 brake calipers have been tuned to perform optimally in road racing conditions.

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 Brakes.
Our aim is simple, help you get the very best products for your budget. Whether that’s Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake or an alternative, we’ll do our best to find you unbiased, genuine customer reviews to help you make your decision. We’ve found 264 different products in the Brakes category at Chain Reaction Cycles and we’ve also managed to find 954 products from Shimano (although only 83 of the 954 are in the Brakes category).
Our first piece of advice is for you to spend some time really getting to know what it is you’re looking for. An important feature for one person might be totally pointless and irrelevant to you, so get a good idea of what you want and need from your Brakes. 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 Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake and seeing how it stacks up against those offered by different brands or even other alternatives from Shimano. Below we’re going to get into the detail of Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake to help you see how the prices stack up.

There’s quite a variance in price in this category too with the lowest priced product we found at £2.99 and most expensive was £496.72.
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 Brakes category. So you can see that the price of Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake at £441 is great value considering the average price of Shimano Brakes is £88.18 and the price varies from £11.99.
It’s also worth bearing in mind that we managed to find Shimano Dura-Ace Di2 R9170 Road Disc Brake during our price scan of several cycle retailers, for the amazing price of £441 which represents a £58.99 or 12% saving against RRP.
