Setting a new bar in the trickle-down technology trend, Shimano 105 5800 brings uncompromising 11-speed road performance to the more budget conscious rider. With a foundation set firmly on the success of Dura-Ace and Ultegra, Shimano's 105 5800 group is a workhorse component package that can hang with the best the industry has to offer. Powerful improvements across the range deliver optimized drivetrain and braking performance that will instantly take your riding to a whole new level. There are lots of flashy, distracting contenders out there, but if you're main focus is getting down to business, the new Shimano 105 group is ready to log some overtime.
Shimano didn't just limit their redesign of the FD-5800 to increase the gear range, but while they were at it, they redesigned the pull arm, spring mechanism, and lowered the trim position for protection against chain drop. These design upgrades result in lighter action, improved shift accuracy, and a responsive feel throughout. Never before has getting into the 11-speed game be so impressively budget-friendly.
