Introducing Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 Series

Dura-Ace has represented the state of the art in bicycle components since 1973. The all-new 2013 Dura-Ace group is the result of 40 years of development and innovation, tested to the limit at the highest level of competition in road racing, time trials and cyclo-cross. Reduced shifting effort lets you concentrate on riding. More control thanks to improved ergonomics. Unbeatable reliability gives you absolute confidence.

 

Crankset
FC-9000 50/34 or 53/39

With a unique four-arm spider and Hollowtech II construction putting strength just where its needed, the FC-9000 chainset sets new standards for stiffness and low weight.

  • New 4-arm design for same stiffness  
      with lighter weight
  • Hollowtech II construction
  • Hollowglide chainrings
  • 11-speed compatible
  • Same bolt circle diameter for compact
      and traditional double chainsets means
      that one crankarm fits all chainring sizes

 

 

 

 

Rear Derailleur
RD-9000

The 11-speed Dura-Ace rear derailleur has been redesigned for lighter operation with the help of new low-friction polymer-coated cables. Shifting effort is now more even across the range, with similar force required at both ends of the cassette.

  • Fast and accurate shifting
  • 11-speed design
  • Maximum sprocket 28t
  • More equal shifting effort through the range

 

 

 

 

 

Dual Control Lever
ST-9000

With smaller, sleeker hoods, the 11-speed compatible ST-9000 STI units deliver improved ergonomics for better rider comfort and control, with reduced lever stroke and lighter action.

  • SIS indexed shifting
  • Smaller hoods improve ergonomics from all positions
  • Release lever stroke reduced by 30%
      compared to ST-7900
  • Polymer-coated cables for the smoothest  shifting
  • Shifting effort up to 47% lower than RD-7900
  • 43%  less effort at the end of the lever
      stroke than FD-7900

Front Derailleur
FD-9000

With a revised actuation ratio in combination with the ST-9000 shifter and polymer-coated cables, the new Dura-Ace front derailleur delivers both a shorter stroke at the lever and reduced effort.

  • New designed pull arm for more direct and easy shifting
  • More equal shifting effort across the range
  • New support bolt for more stable contact to the frame
 

Brakes
BR-9000

Long, fast descents demand confidence. Dura-Ace brakes deliver, with a new symmetrical dual pivot design and twin bearings reducing pivot friction and improving efficiency and controllability. Along with new low-friction BC-9000 cables, Dura-Ace brakes give smooth, light operation with excellent modulation.

  • 10% more power than BR-7900
  • Smooth and light operation with increased modulation
 

Cassette Sprockets
