Shimano has taken all the improvements from Dura-Ace 9000 and incorporated them in the affordable Ultegra 6800 for unbelievable performance at a surprisingly low price.
The most obvious change is the jump to 11 speed, however dig a bit deeper under the surface and you will see there is much more. The crankset gets and new bolt diameter that will house compact, mid-compact and standard size chainrings. The brake set now works on a cam, so the modulation is improved and the braking power is increased. The front derailleur has a longer pivot arm that makes front shifting so smooth, it rivals electronic shifting. The dual controls brake/shift levers receive improved ergonomics and smoother cable routing.
Ritchey Pro components and Mavic Aksium wheels and tires round out the package.
