Shimano Ultegra 6870
We had our first go on Shimano’s new hydraulic road disc brakes at their press launch back in October of last year but what we really wanted to do was drag a set kicking and screaming back to Blighty so we could give them a proper go in more, erm, challenging conditions. So we needed a disc-specific road frame to hang them from. Step forward the Culprit Croz Blade.
Well we've known it was coming for a while but today Shimano have formally announced their road disc setup as well as the launch of the new Ultegra Di2 groupset, 6870.
