Thank you to Shimano for the products featured in this video. All opinions are the presenter's own. The new Shimano Ultegra has all the functionality of Dura-Ace on paper, but how does it ride? Subscribe to GCN: You've seen Simon Richardson's first look at the new Shimano Ultegra R8070 groupset, and now Si is back with his first ride. A few of Simon's thoughts on the new generation Ultegra: - Improved ergonomic hydraulic levers now feel very similar to rim brake option - Synchro and semi-synchro functions for shifting - Hidden Buttons that you can use to control third party devices - Alterations for hydraulic disc brake compatibility Have you ridden the new Ultegra?
