New and Improved Shimano 105 groupset set to release in June 14

New and Improved Shimano 105 groupset set to release in June 14


åÊThis might come as great news for competitive cyclists and road biking aficionados. åÊShimano has just announced an 11 speed variant of everyone‰Ûªs favourite road groupset- the 105. The groupset is slated for release in June 2014.

Shimano has brought some of the features of the high end Ultegra and Dura-Ace to the 105, giving more people around the world the opportunity to experience the real deal.

One of the biggest features being the 11 speed drivetrain. The 11 speed cassette is available in 12-25 tooth, 11-28 tooth and a wide range 11-32 variants. A short cage rear derailleur handles sprockets up to 28 tooth and a long range derailleur handles the 32 tooth sprocket variant.

While changes don‰Ûªt stop with the Drivetrain alone, Shimano has also improved the build of the Shifters and the crank arms as well. Here are all the other changes from the older 105 groupset:

1. Polymer coated cables for light shifting.

2. Compact grip shift/brake levers with customisable screw-type reach adjust

3. New spring arms on both front and rear derailleurs for increased adjustability

4. A 4 ‰ÛÒarm crank, like the Dura-Ace and Ultegra groupsets, that Shimano claims improves transmission of power to your cycle.

5. Increased braking power with the new symmetrical dual-pivot brake caliper. These support tyres up to 28c. This is a noteworthy improvement if you cycle a lot in the city.

6. The groupset will be available in 2 colours ‰ÛÒ Black and Silver.

If, like us, you were wondering if the Di2 technology of the Dura-Ace and Ultegra would trickle down to the 105 as well, you‰Ûªre going to be disappointed. Shimano currently has no plans to integrate electronic shifting into the 105. But as long as they‰Ûªre not ruling out the possibility completely, we‰Ûªre still going to wait in anticipation.
