Aimed for sprinters, Shimano launches a new satellite shifter, the Dura-Ace Di2 SW-7372. The product allows for quick gear shifting at the rear, which is especially advantageous during sprints and riding on drops.
The new satellite shifter enables the rider to maintain a firm grip on the handlebar while manipulating gear shifting and could be installed right alongside the electronic shifter as a multiple shift option. Shimano enjoys this edge over the cable operated shifting option mounted anywhere on the handlebar. This has proved to be very effective for climbers, time trialist and triathletes, allowing them to shift on either end of the aerobar extensions.
The new Dura-Ace Di2 SW-7372 is soon to be released on February 2011.
