Shimano have finally lifted the veil of secrecy on their new Ultegra road groupset. Slotting in second-from-top in the Shimano hierarchy, just below Dura-Ace, the new kit replaces the old Ultegra and Ultegra SL ranges, and weighs in at 151g lighter than the former and 107g lighter than the latter.

We were shown a prototype version back in February but have only now been allowed to reveal details of the new range, which Shimano claim offers "increased levels of perfection and performance".

The new groupset features trickle-down technology from Dura-Ace, improved aerodynamics and a new 'duotone silver' finish. Shimano say it will "suit all kinds of road cyclists, from the enthusiast to the hardcore racer".
