What is Shimano Di2?
Shimano’s Di2 (Digital Integrated Intelligence) is a shifting option to Shimano’s proven mechanical shifting. Instead of mechanical cables, Di2 is an electronic gear-shifting system that enables riders to execute shifts with electronic switches vs. mechanical shift levers. Through the use of Di2, shifts are fast and precise and customization options are endless. The most important thing to remember as you read on, the user is always in control of what your system does or can be pre-programmed to do.
