If you're after a new mechanical groupset, they don't come much better than this.
The shifting is as light as mechanical gets and the braking is as smooth as silk. What's more, at this price, it's a bargain!
It's fair to say that the changes made to this new Dura-Ace groupset over the old 9000 series were quite subtle. But if you look closely, there are some significant changes.
Starting with the rear mech, Shimano has used their Shadow technology to mover the mech further in line with the cassette. This not only protects the rear mech from crashes, but it's also apparently more aero too.
Shimano has also allowed this rear mech to run up to a 30T cassette, giving an extra climbing gear should you need it, without having to swap out mechs.
The crankset has changed aesthetically, with a beefier crankarm that is offset to better cope with pedalling forces.
The front mech has also been fully redesigned to make it more compact. This not only provides better shifting but also enhanced tyre clearance, meaning wider tyres won't cause issues.
This R9120 version gets light mechanical shifting combined with the exceptional Dura-Ace hydraulic disc brakes.

In February 1921, Shozaburo Shimano opened Shimano Iron Works in Higashi Minato in Sakai City when he was 26 years old. On the site of a demolished celluloid factory, he rented a nearly 40-square-meter area. The monthly rent was 5 yen. At that time, the new establishment had only a single lathe, measuring about 1.8 meters long. Shozaburo Shimano decided to produce freewheels. Of all bicycle components, freewheels entailed the highest level of technology to produce.
Since then, Shimano has released some of our favourite cycling products with the current Ultegra Di2 Disc groupset being our pick of the bunch.
