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-F Braze On 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-F 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-F 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: 92 grams.
This Ultegra FD-R8000-F Braze On Front Derailleur is only compatible with braze on compatible frames. If you need a clamped front derailleur, the FD-R8000-B Front Derailleur will be compatible.
