Professional riders have been using the Shimano Dura-Ace components with Di2 electronic shifting technology in the biggest races in the world over the past four years: over the highest mountains, in the most extreme weather conditions and over the worst possible roads and cyclo cross tracks. Now it is time to introduce this revolutionary technology into the Shimano Ultegra, making it available to a much wider group of road racers and enthusiasts.
The advantages of Di2 (Digital Integrated Intelligence) are clear for everybody who has tested it: changing gears becomes easier, effortless and faster by simply touching the shift buttons. Control at the top of your fingers. Additional benefits include an automatic trimming front derailleur, unmatched precision plus super easy installation and adjustment.
The electric cables include only two core wires (DURA-ACE Di2 has four) and the connectors are smaller too with a diameter of 5.1mm (-3.7mm compared to DURAACE Di2). Easy plug and play system to connect the cables, which will be available in different lengths to accommodate most frame dimensions. Connection with PC for diagnosis and changing the shifting order.
The SEIS (Shimano Electronic Intelligence System) is based on the Shimano Index System (SIS) that has proved its superior gear changing characteristics over the years. The big difference is that in this case, the shifting action is provided for by electronics instead of mechanics.
Ultegra 6770 products will exclusively become available in the new Ultegra glossy grey color. The products are not compatible with Dura-ace Di2.
