A practical and efficient wheelset, the 2011 Shimano MT15 wheelset features an angular contact bearing system also known as the cup and cone.

Since it uses angular contact bearing system, this awesome Shimano wheelset offers a longer lasting lifespan compared to other wheelsets out there, including both the semi-sealed as well as the sealed variations. This of course will be done with proper care as well as regular greasing and precise adjustments to the wheelset.

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.
