The new Shimano Dura Ace 9170 is Shimano’s electronic groupset with hydraulic disc brakes. Here are Si’s impressions from the first ride out on it.
We had an exclusive first look at Shimano’s 9100 generation Dura Ace groupsets back in July 2016. And, now we have a chance to ride on them. First up is Dura Ace 9170. Dura Ace 9170 is the first Dura Ace groupset to feature hydraulic braking with electronic braking, so it’s safe to say that it has been eagerly awaited.
In this video, former professional cyclist Simon Richardson rides the groupset and finds out what it’s all about.
