Shimano Ultegra 6800 11sp Cassette
Its not often a cassette is the most significant component in the release of a new groupset, (well, for a year at least, since the launch of Dura Ace 9000), but the extra sprocket on this new Ultegra cassette will be a welcome addition for riders seeking wider ratios. The CS-6800 will offer plenty: 11-23, 11-25, 12-25, 11-28, and a whopping 11-32. The broad choice supports a concept Shimano calls a rider tuned drivetrain, offering ratios they believe are appropriate to cyclings four major riding types. While its possible to achieve broad ratios from 10-speed set-ups (SRAMs Wi-Fli offers 11-32, after all), doing so from 11 speeds should reduce the gap between each sprocket. Features: Lightweight 11-speed HG-EV cassette with rigid alloy sprocket carrier for reduced weight and better shifting performance, even under the most demanding gear changes Hyperglide EV sprockets have been designed to reduce weight with improve teeth shaping providing accurate shifting and reduced wear Wide gear range to meet the demands of all types of rider For use with HG-EV chains Weight: 212g (11-23) Weight: 212g.

Shimano are a Japanese manufacturer primarily known for their cycling components, and to a lesser extent shoes and clothing. Founded in 1921, Shimano is widely believed to be the largest cycling component manufacturer in the world, having reached this status through a combination of innovation, reliability and value for money. Whatever your style of riding, whether it be road or MTB, Shimano will have a component range to suit your level and budget, from the low end Alivio and Tiagra to the professional standard XTR and Dura-Ace. Over the years, Shimano have revolutionised bicycle gear, brake and pedal systems, such as the recessed SPD, Hollowtech crank arms and smooth shifting Hyperglide sprockets. Initially their component range faced competition from Suntour, whereas nowadays their primary rivals for market share are SRAM and Campagnolo.
