Shimano set out to bring their pro-proven performance that riders expect from the Dura Ace series to their Ultegra groupset at an affordable price. The Shimano Ultegra FD-R8000-B Front Derailleur features all of the features of the Dura Ace 9100 series with only minimal weight difference. Featuring the new link construction, this front derailleur provides a significantly lighter shift operation that matches the force curve of the hand more naturally, reducing the effort required for a shift. With the new Link construction, the FD-R8000-B allows for more flexible cable routing design, making it easier to set up and maintain than ever. Designed with ease of use in mind, the FD-R8000-B allows for tool-free adjustment and integrated cable tension setting without the need of specialized tools. The FD-R8000 was also redesigned to perform better with disc-specific frames, fitting wider gear pitch without sacrificing shift quality
Claimed weight: 106 grams.
This Ultegra FD-R8000-B Front Derailleur is available in two clamp sizes, either 34.9mm or 31.8mm (with a 28.6mm adapter). If your frame needs a braze-on derailleur, the FD-R8000-F Front Derailleur will be compatible. If you need help deciding what is compatible with your frame, feel free to Contact Us, and we'll be happy to help.

Shimano Ultegra Front Derailleur.
Shimano quality as you would expect and at a fair price.
Simple enough to install and adjust. Just don't rip off the little red tag hanging from the cage when it comes out of the box because it is a very useful part of the install process.
It has been on the bike for a few months and shifts smoothly and reliably.
