Full Integration

Shimano has completely revised its top groupset heading into next year's road and tri season. The new Dura-Ace R9100 gruppo will hit stores in early 2017. 

The new Dura-Ace group is designed with integration in mind. The engineers at Shimano were determined to ensure all the components work together - the system is designed to be superior to the sum of its parts. The ultimate proof of this statement can be seen in the crank, which includes Shimano's first integrated power meter, which probably isn't the best news for third-party power meter manufacturers.
