Fast & Furious Friday - SHIMANO 9000 11 SPEED DURA ACE

Are you in the market for a new component group?

Are you looking into building up a frame set that we have posted about recently?

Well, if you want top of the line mechanical components for a top of the line machine look no further than the new Dura-Ace 9000 11 Speed Group!

Let's start with the crank set:

With a unique four-arm spider and Hollowtech II construction putting strength just where its needed, the FC-9000 chainset sets new standards for stiffness and low weight.
  • New 4-arm design for same stiffness with lighter weight
  • Hollowtech II construction
  • Hollowglide chainrings
  • 11-speed compatible
  • Same bolt circle diameter for compact and traditional double chainsets means that one crankarm fits all chainring sizes
  • 50-34T/52-36T/52-38T/53-39T/54-42T/55-42T
  • 165/167.5/170/172.5/175/177.5/180mm
Dual Control Levers:

With smaller, sleeker hoods, the 11-speed compatible ST-9000 STI units deliver improved ergonomics for better rider comfort and control, with reduced lever stroke and lighter action
  • SIS indexed shifting
  • 11-speed design
  • Smaller hoods improve ergonomics from all positions
  • Release lever stroke reduced by 30% compared to ST-7900
  • Polymer-coated cables for the smoothest shifting
  • Shifting effort up to 47% lower than RD-7900
  • 43%  less effort at the end of the lever stroke than FD-7900

Cassette Sprockets:

Rider-tuned means Dura-Ace works the way you want it. The new 11-speed cassettes are available in a range of sizes including a wide-range 11-28 option - one cassette to use all year round. Smooth, fast shifting guaranteed.
  • Carbon mid spider carrier
  • Titanium sprockets (16T and bigger)
  • 11-speed, Rider-tuned gear combinations 11-23T/11-25T/11-28T/12-25T/12-28T

Long, fast descents demand confidence. Dura-Ace brakes deliver, with a new symmetrical dual pivot design and twin bearings reducing pivot friction and improving efficiency and controllability. Along with new low-friction BC-9000 cables, Dura-Ace brakes give smooth, light operation with excellent modulation. Available with conventional mount or direct mount for aero road bikes (BR-9010).
  • 10% more power than BR-7900
  • Smooth and light operation with increased modulation
  • Also available in direct mount version (BR-9010) for aero applications

Front Derailleur:

With a revised actuation ratio in combination with the ST-9000 shifter and polymer-coated cables, the new Dura-Ace front derailleur delivers both a shorter stroke at the lever and reduced effort.
  • New designed pull arm for more direct and easy shifting
  • More equal shifting effort across the range
  • New support bolt for more stable contact to the frame

Rear Derailleur:

The 11-speed Dura-Ace rear derailleur has been redesigned for lighter operation with the help of new low-friction polymer-coated cables. Shifting effort is now more even across the range, with similar force required at both ends of the cassette.
  • Fast and accurate shifting
  • 11-speed design
  • Maximum sprocket 28t
  • More equal shifting effort through the range
