  • SHIMANO ULTEGRA - DI2 - Front Derailleur - Road - 2x11-speed
  • The SHIMANO ULTEGRA R8050 DI2 front derailleur delivers quick and smooth front shifting even under high pedalling torque. It has programmed chain guide trim settings and can be used in full or semi SHIMANO SYNCHRONIZED SHIFT modes.
  • 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
