Simply the Best

These are my favorite shifter. I have used tiagra, 105, and ultegra di2 and regular ultegra as well. These fit well in the hand and feel sturdy. I was able to combine store credit and a sale together to get fantastic savings so I highly recommend BTD.

Thank you for your feedback.

Top notch upgrade

These shifters perform flawlessly. I bought these as an upgrade to replace my Shimano 105 5800 levers, and I couldn't be happier. The textured grip is noticeablely better, and there is a crisper, cleaner shift on both the frontend and backend. The feel of hoods in my hands are much more comfortable while riding due to improved ergonomic shaping and the increased reach adjustment has made a big difference in comfort and safety since it is now now much easier to reach the brake levers on the hoods and especially in the drops. These shifters are brilliant. Highly recommend!!!

Thank you for your feedback.

Great Looks Excellent Shifting

These shifters work great, they feel good in hand, on the hoods & aero hoods positions despite being made ergonomically smaller for smaller hands. I used an old Claris setup before & the tops of the hoods were massive & easy to grab with 3rd & 4th digits. The Ultegra shifters shift with an audible snap & simultaneous shifting action at the rear mech. These are absolutely fantastic, hope to do many miles on them.

Thank you for your feedback.

Ultegra is still my go to!

Upgraded components recently from 2007 Ultegra 10-speed triple to an 11-speed double including these levers. I have both DA and Ultegra bikes but I have to say, it's Ultegra that is my first choice with Shimano components! Great engineering, and ergonomics but what really separates Ultegra in my mind is the durability. Yes DA shaves a few grams here and there but in my experience it trades durability and the premium is just not worth it.

Thank you for your feedback.

Great shifters.

My old Dura Ace 10 speed shifter broke so I decided to go with 11 speed Ultegra not sure if that qualifies as an upgrade or not, but I'm happy with the new shifters. .

Thank you for your feedback.

The best value.

These function as flawlessly as you would expect and look amazing of course, if I could afford Dura Ace I would buy it but everything I've read suggests I wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyway. I definitely love the increased reach adjustment, I have relatively small hands so being able to get my fingers around the lever while in the drops is very reassuring.

Thank you for your feedback.

Smooth shifting

Hoods were nice for grip even when I was

very sweaty. The shifting was very smooth.
