Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters by Shimano
They say the third times a charm and Shimano continues to bring Di2 to the masses with the much-refined gen 3 Ultegra Di2 ST-R8050 11-Speed Shifters.

This requires much less focus and effort, especially for front shifting, so you can concentrate on riding and is much appreciated on the battlefield. Remote sprinter and climbing satellite shifters are available separately that plug into these shifters, allowing further customization.The Ultegra Di2 STI levers are compatible with Shimano E-Tube components and accessories including derailleurs, battery, junction boxes and wires. The E-Tube software allows you to fully customize the group including shifting speed, number of shifts per click or ...
