The 1 1/8″ headset houses NVO components, Ritchey handlebar and stem with a Jamis bar tape and Touring Sport saddle and satin steel rails.

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….

The Hora from Italy’s Vittoria is a carbon sole shoe that provides a well ventilated fit when used for road bike racing. It has a Lorica microfiber upper with inserts of reinforced carbon and nylon mesh for good air flow.

The carbon sole is actually Vittoria’s UD carbon “Freccia tricolore”. This features an overall thickness of 3mm that supports your foot when you pedal, giving it enough rigidity in all the right places and corresponding comfort on areas that do not require stress. The road shoe possesses a cleat fixing slot and a special paint finish for better grip, too.

The Vittoria Hora uses a rotary ratchet mechanism that lets the nylon cord lace up with a small lever on the upper. A buckle strap across the upper, right above the knob is added for more security. It weighs 265g and retails for €249.
