Smoother, simpler, better. Shimano's done it again with its 2013 Dura-Ace D-9000 11-speed mechanical group. The new front derailleur's designed with a shorter shifting throw that delivers crisp, precise shifts that actually rival Di2 in performance--even when standing under power. More proof that mechanical shifting is going to be around for a long time to come.
- Long leverage arm provides increased power to glide the chain to the big ring
- Forged aluminum construction for lightweight strength and durability
- Fast, precise mechanical front shifts that rival Di2 in performance
