  • The Di2 front derailleur's operation is pioneering, smooth shifting is guaranteed thanks to a microchip communication link with the gear levers. What's more, shifting the rear derailleur automatically trims the front derailleur
  • The biggest difference you will notice is just how much quicker and effortlessly smoother shifting on the front chainrings is, even under load
  • The difference in the effort and time to actuate the shift between mechanical and Di2 is truly staggering
  • Full and semi synchronized shifting programable, Synchro shift compatible meaning a single shifter can control both front and rear shifting which can be fully custom tuned to your riding preferences. Semi synchronized shifting means when a front shift is made the rear mech will automatically correct to the appropriate ratio
  • The removal of traditional mechanical cables in favour of electrical wires not only eliminates poor shifting caused by contaminates, corrosion and stretching, but provides effortless gear shifts
  • The front derailleur also trims automatically; the cage moves in response to the position of the rear derailleur on the cassette to ensure no chain rub and a quiet unobtrusive ride, enabling you to concentrate on the road ahead
  • Designed to work with the wider gear pitch spacing Shimano chainsets without sacrificing shifting performance on bikes with 135 / 142 mm O.L.D.
  • Cable tension is adjustable on the front derailleur
  • Braze-on fit as standard; if your bike does not have a braze-on mount seat tube adapters are available
  • 11-speed E-tube Di2 compatible
