Which is better Shimano Ultegra or Dura Ace?

Although Dura Ace is considered to Shimano’s out-and-out performance groupset, surprisingly, Ultegra is generally deemed to be much more versatile, mainly because of the lower range of gears that it offers. While Ultegra cassettes go all the way up to 34 teeth, Dura Ace cassettes only go up to 30 teeth.

All of the Ultegra parts, particularly the front and rear derailleurs, are noticeably heavier than their Dura Ace counterparts – 263 grams, about half a pound.

What kind of gears does a Dura Ace Di2 have?

The latest Dura-Ace Di2 offers synchro and semi-synchro shift, allowing a single shift lever to be used to control both derailleurs for optimum chain line while minimising the jumps in gear ratio. Dura-Ace is still 11 speed, and the rear derailleur is capable of turning an 11-30T cassette.

Which is the best Dura Ace in Shimano?

Shimano is known for trickling down technology from its top-of-the-line Dura-Ace group to the Ultegra and 105 groups. Because of this, current-generation 105 and Ultegra groups could be considered a step up from the previous generation Dura-Ace group.
