Shimano Ultegra R8000 3-Piece Wide Range Upgrade Kit
Shimano's 2nd generation 11-speed Ultegra R8000 has been engineered for greater gearing range, and given that the new Mid-Cage (GS) rear derailleurs are compatible with any Shimano road 11-speed shifters, you now have the option to run up to an 11-34 cassette with the GS version.
We set-up this R8000 3-Piece Wide Range Upgrade Kit to make it convenient to increase the range of your 11-speed drivetrain. You get to choose your chain and cassette options, and the GS cage comes as the standard option. The lowest range cassette Shimano recommends with the GS Rear Derailleur is the 11-28. You can run the GS rear derailleur and the larger 11-32 and 11-34 cassettes with 50-34, 52-26, 53-39 or 46-36 11-speed chainring combinations.
We are also offering full R8000 groups and a 5 piece upgrade kit if you prefer to take your upgrading further. The benefit is that the new R8000 Dual Control Shifters have been optimized for the newly designed R8000 Front Derailleur, as well as reducing effort and increasing efficiency with the R8000 rear derailleurs. If you have any questions, please give us a call at 800.627.6664 and one of cycling experts will talk you through it.
