Shimano Dura-Ace R9200 has been five years in the making - one year longer than the usual product cycle. Its arrival follows an intense period of speculation, spy shots and secret patents - but the Japanese component manufacturer has finally revealed the all-new 12-speed, semi-wireless groupset. 

Not only that, but Shimano has taken the highly unusual step of launching its new second string road bike groupset, Ultegra R8100, simultaneously. In the past there’s been a gap between the release of the top groupset and the next one down, hence the term ‘trickle down’ - but this time Shimano has poured the same technology into both.
