Shimano Dura-Ace 9100 is the second generation 11-speed road group from the Japanese giant and the first time we see Dura-Ace hydraulic disc brakes. The Dura-Ace ST-R9120 Hydraulic STI Lever & Disc Brake Caliper feature the shift upgrades found in the mechanical R9100 STI Levers and a master cylinder and caliper for disc brake use. If you prefer the more positive feel of mechanical shifting but want the all-weather performance of hydraulic disc brakes, this is the shifter/brake combo you're after. For those of you building up a new road bike, already running 11-speed Shimano road, or looking to upgrade to disc brakes, these levers are fully compatible with Shimano 11-speed road groups. Available in front and rear options, the R9120 levers come complete with BR-R9170 hydraulic flat mount calipers and housing. Shimano doesn't brand a product "Dura-Ace" unless performance and finish are the best available, and the ST-R9120 levers are worthy of the group's designation. The shifting? Easy but with a positive response through the lever. The braking? It's disc and it's Shimano. What more needs to be said? The aesthetics and reliability? Again, it's Shimano, and no brand has had a larger influence on the shape of lever bodies and hoods in the last 20+ years. The main body is a durable and light composite construction. The lever blades are carbon fiber, and the system glides on 4 bearings. The design may not be perfection in the literal sense, but it's just about as close as the cycling industry has come to date. The new Dura-Ace mechanical 11-speed shifters reduce lever throw by 24% on the outer levers and 14% on the inner ones, and you can throw the levers with less effort and a lighter touch. Similar to the XTR mountain levers, the Dura-Ace inner lever now features Instant Release with no dead spot between the lever stop point and when the cable advances. The ergonomics and looks between these hoods and the rim brake versions are virtually indistinguishable. Perc...
