Di2 - Digital Integrated Intelligence


After four years of testing Di2 Dura Ace (Digital Integrated Intelligence) in the pro peloton, Shimano has finally release Di2 Ultegra, making electronic shifting technology available to everyone.  Di2 Ultegra will be available in Australia from September 30 so the wait it almost over for Australian cyclists who can turn their mechanical shifting to electronic.

Di2 Ultegra shifting works by a simple touch to the shift buttons which are found on the right and left brake levers.  A message is then sent from the levers through two internally routed electric cables which communicate with the front and rear derailleur which then change your gears.

This technology means  faster, smoother, easier and more precise gear changes; an automatic trimming front derailleur; easy, automatic adjustment of front and rear derailleurs and easy installation and adjustment.

Check out the link to Shimano Di2 Ultegra and look forward to Lifecycle fitting it to your machine after the 31 September.
