The previous iteration of Shimano's 105 shifters, the 5800 series, have long been the shifters of choice for riders the world over. Now, the new R7000 STI shifters have taken the 105 groupset to new heights of performance. Designed for 11-speed, double chainring systems, these shifters boast vastly improved ergonomics for more intuitive use, and newly chamfered tops to assist with grip in wet conditions. They also now boast 15mm of brake lever reach adjustment, so no matter your physiological requirements you will be able to tailor them to suit.
The OPTISLICK cable technology features an electronically coated outer layer that assists with shifting efficiency and helps to weatherproof the shifters against corrosion. They also benefit from easier access to the inner cables, making these shifters eminently serviceable and a solid option for a year-round winter bike. Offering effortless shifting performance, smooth braking modulation, and supremely comfortable ergonomics, these shifters are a surefire performance upgrade for any rider.
