New Shimano 105 DI2

Shimano have announced their latest groupset - R7000 105 DI2.

This new groupset borrows technology for the higher level Ultegra and Dura Ace groupsets that were released last year; Semi-wireless and 12 speed shifting being the notably upgrades, but even aesthetically the groupset looks very similar to its big brothers.

Shimano are aiming this towards the 'mid-range' groupset market, similar to SRAM Rival AXS which has been fairly dominant in this space over the last 18 months, especially for bikes at the £4-5k level. Interestingly however 105 DI2 is still more expensive than Rival AXS (at least as a groupset aftermarket option) and it sits closer to a Force AXS level pricepoint.

Bike brands have provided limited information on new models featuring this groupset - we are waiting for information from Specialized, Trek etc. Although Wilier have released their new Garda with 105 DI2 - prices start at £3690 which is really interesting for a DI2 equipped bike. It appears electronic gearing for the masses truly has arrived.

Key information:

  • 11-34 or 11-36 cassette options
  • Standard Shimano 50-34 or 52-36 chainrings
  • Semi-wireless (shifters are wireless, derailleurs are wired to battery in the frame).
  • 3068g weight
  • Estimated to arrive August 2022
  • £1,730

Groupsets are predicted to begin arriving in the UK from 1st August - we do have a number of launch groupsets available for pre-order from this date.
