Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 11 Speed Groupset Specification
- Shimano Dura-Ace R9150 Di2 11-Speed Groupset. Each component of Shimano’s Dura-Ace R9150 groupset has been re-engineered to ensure maximum stiffness, performance and efficiency at the lightest possible weight Synchro Shift. For the first time in a Dura-Ace groupset, Shimano‚Äôs innovative Synchro Shift is now available as a programmable Di2 option; Synchro Shift creates an intuitive experience with synchronised front and rear shifting, which can be custom programmed. With ‘full’ and ‘semi’ Synchro Shift available, this intuitive new mode automatically reacts when you shift from one chainring to another. Remove the guess work as your rear derailleur shifts automatically to minimise the gear step so you can keep riding with a smooth cadence and rhythm Di2 E-Tube. The Di2 E-Tube system provides unmatched shift performance, reliability and rider customisation. Along with enhanced Di2 functionality, the front and rear Di2 derailleurs are connected via Shimano‚Äôs small EW-WU111 wireless unit allowing for an ANT Private connection between Dura-Ace R9100 and third party devices. These components can be connected to Shimano¬¥s E-Tube software, which supports the programmable aspects of the Di2 electronic gear shifting system. Use the Bluetooth technology for seamless access on smartphones and tablets Dura-Ace R9100 Crankset. The Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 Compact Crankset is completely re-designed to offer the very best combination of light weight and stiffness. It features Shimano’s iconic 4-arm hollow spider that is made from hollow-forged aluminium Although the crank arms and spider arms are noticeably bigger, which increases stiffness, the overall weight has dropped by 7g over the previous edition of Dura Ace The crankset has been adapted to work with disc brake road bikes that generally have 135mm rear hub spacing and shorter chainstays without the need to increase Q-factor thanks to its wider chainring spacing Dura-Ace R9100 Crankset Features: Material: Hollow-forged AluminiumEnhanced design saves 7g while maintaining rigidityIconic 4-arm construction maintains high rigidity and reduces weightOptimised crank arm design strengthens key stress zonesNew chainring tooth profile is adapted for race bike specific disc brake systemsAccommodates shorter chainstays (410mm) with 135mm OLDHollowglide chainring construction maintains smooth shifting whilst reducing weight and increasing stiffnessDura-Ace Di2 R9150 2×11 STI Shifter Set.

The Dura-Ace Di2 R9150 Rear Derailleur takes the Shadow technology from its mountain bike range and introduces it to the road. The shadow design places the rear derailleur under the chainstay and cassette to give a slimmer profile, which not only helps with aerodynamics but also offers extra protection in crashes The Shadow design offers faster wheel changes thanks to the fact that it moves the derailleur out of the way of the dropouts. It also offers faster and more precise shifting than ever before The new derailleur comes in only one cage size that will work with cassette sprockets up to 30T. With this new Di2 9150 groupset, Shimano brings Synchro Shift to the road too. This technology allows you to shift to higher or lower gears with your right hand shifter and both front and rear derailleurs will operate to optimise chainline. It will also automatically shift the rear mech when you change from the large ring to the inner ring to maintain smoothness Dura-Ace Di2 R9150 Rear Derailleur Features: Maximum Sprocket:¬†30TMinimum Sprocket:¬†11TMaximum Front Difference:¬†16TTotal Capacity:¬†35TErgonomic shifting operation without stressShimano Synchronised shiftLow profile rear derailleur designShimano Shadow RDRace endurance for less damage in crashMaintains compact and smooth appearanceWeight: 204gDura-Ace Di2 R9150 Braze On Front Mech.
