New Shimano 105 is new for 2011 and incorporates many of the benefits that were originally developed for Dura Ace 7900 series and integrated into Ultegra 6700 series. The new group is available in Sterling Silver for a classic road cosmetic or Lodestar Black for a more contemporary look. Overall, performance and durability is enhanced while the entire group manages to drop almost 30 grams from the prior generation. New Super SLR Design relocates the brake lever pivot for better mechanical advantage. Synchronized with the new brake arch pivot a greater level of modulation and power are available from the tops of the brake hoods, where most people ride a majority of the time. Adjustable toe in on the brake shoes allows for fine tuning braking performance while pad compounds nearly double wet weather braking performance. Available in silver or black the new 105 brakes are compatible with Ultegra 6700 Dual Control levers.
