Shimano 105 RD-5800 Rear Derailleur
Setting a new bar in the trickle-down technology trend, Shimano 105 5800 brings uncompromising 11-speed road performance to the more budget conscious rider. With a foundation set firmly on the success of Dura-Ace and Ultegra, Shimano’s 105 5800 group is a workhorse component package that can hang with the best the industry has to offer. Powerful improvements across the range deliver optimized drivetrain and braking performance that will instantly take your riding to a whole new level. There are lots of flashy, distracting contenders out there, but if you’re main focus is getting down to business, the new Shimano 105 group is ready to log some overtime.
Shimano didn’t just limit their redesign of the RD-5800 to increase the gear range, but while they were at it, they added a new spring balance and cable pitch, increasing potential for adjustability. With the RD-5800 rear derailleur, shifting is crisp and predicatble and adjustment is as simple as it gets. The SS (short-cage) version allows for use with cassettes up to 28t, while the GS (mid-cage) version stretches to reach cassettes up to 32t. The Shimano 105 RD-5800 rear derailleur offers reliability and workhorse performance at a price point that won’t even get close to breaking the bank.
