The Ultegra ST-R8000 shift/brake lever by Shimano - generous reach adjustment
The Shimano Ultegra ST-R8000 shift/brake lever with Shimano Total Integration technology offers you fast, intuitive shifting (2x or 11-speed) and easily adjustable braking performance in the SLR-EV rim braking system. When it comes to adjusting the reach, it outstrips every previous Ultegra model. An update of the inner workings led to even more precise shifts, which are much smoother at the front in particular. The ST-R8000 Dual Control lever has a high carbon content and is supplied with a high-quality polymer shift cable.

STI Dual Control (DCL) DCL stands for Dual Control Lever. It has brake and shifting functions in the system and enables easy operation. Ergonomic innovation is probably more critical to the higher standard performance than the added gearing. The shift internals borrow the robustness from Shimano's MTB technology and are so smooth and effortless that one finger shifts front and rear are possible. Indeed, shifting is the ultimate act of Shimano Total Integration, and simply has to be experienced to be understood. The Dura Ace, Ultegra and 105 Dual Control shift/brake levers have been optimised and feature, for example, a weight-reduced joint on the inside of the shift mechanism and integration of the cable for easier steering. The extremely compact and high-precision manufactured individual parts result in an unrivalled shifting speed.
