New lever shape and improved ergonomics add prominent features to these Shimano Ultegra 6700 10-Speed Shifters and you'll literally feel the difference in these dual control levers. The levers are angled outward, putting the levers in a position where the rider can easily engage the shifter, increasing comfort and efficiency. The ergonomics have been enhanced by redesigning the shape of the shifters to reduce the overall reach and girth. There is a 3 setting reach adjustment so that you can customize the lever position for your hand size and the bend of the handle bar. There is an improved brake lever pivot position making it easier to brake or shift when riding on the hoods where people do a majority of their riding.
The mechanics and materials that go into these Shimano Ultegra 6700 10-Speed Shifters are equally amazing. The levers haven't only been reshaped, they are made of lightweight carbon fiber. They are a little larger so it's easier to engage with your finger tips. The pivot position has been changed so that more cable is being pulled when you begin to engage the brakes giving you more modulated braking control. With multiple throwing shifter levers; the right lever can down shift one, two or three cogs at a time and still upshift one cog at a time.
So with improved design, ergonomic and mechanical features you'd expect from the Shimano Ultegra 6700 10-Speed Shifters, you'll get a package that gives great performance shifting and braking but you feel the difference in the palm of you hand, or is that what you won't feel (numbness, fatigue)?
