Now 11 speed, the 105 RD-5800 Medium Cage Rear Derailleur is updated and better than ever before.
Always the budget racer and enthusiast's favorite, with the jump to 11 speed Shimano's 105 components are closer to rivaling their more expensive stable mates than they ever have been. The increased ability to play with the heavy hitters is a direct result of continued trickle down from the Ultegra and Dura-Ace groups, and this rear derailleur is certainly a big beneficiary.
Completely redesigned to accommodate 11 speed shifting, Shimano was also able to incorporate other tweaks that further improve performance. The shifting action is lighter, similar to that of Shimano's more expensive models, and new geometries, spring balance, and cable pitch create what Shimano calls more "robust adjustability." This medium cage version of the RD-5800 can handle up to a 32 tooth rear cog, and is compatible with the same polymer coated shift cables used with Ultegra 6800.
The 105 RD-5800 Medium Cage Rear Derailleur is available in Black or Silver and has a 32 tooth cog capacity.
