If our calculations adding up the prices of the individual components is correct, the mechanical rim brake Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 groupset will start from £1854.98 (compared to £1436.91 for the old model), although the price depends on your choice of chainset and cassette ratios, and whether you want a band-on or braze-on front derailleur.
The Shimano Dura-Ace 9150 electronic groupset will start at £2544.91, while there will also be slight premium if you choose to go for disc brakes with either the mechanical or electronic groupsets.
Madison, the UK distributor of Shimano, has also announced pricing of the new wheelsets that match up with the new groupset. The wheels start at £999.98 for a pair of C24 aluminium rim brake clinchers, and go all the way up to £2599.98 for a pair of C60 carbon clinchers.
