If you want Shimano 10-speed tip shifters, then these new Dura-Ace beauties are your only option. And as you’d expect from a piece designed to work at the highest level, these shifters are real luxury items.

Smooth forged alloy levers get a thick rubber tip for wet finger grip, and the click-through is super slick on the bike. But they still retain the emergency friction shift option in case a crash knocks your indexing out.

Once on they’re a totally ‘fit-and-forget’ piece. Just be careful to re-assemble them correctly after pulling them apart to plug them into your extensions.
