Shimano Alivio 3x9v 2015 - First Impressions

 

 

 

 

We could test groupset Alivio 2015.

 

 

A test not challenging, but good enough to understand the new groupset. The overall quality is very good, excellent ergonomics of the controls and the smooth action of the levers. Excellent precision front and rear derailleur, equally valid their accuracy. Very valid braking, even within the limits of a test not certainly burdensome. Also very good hubs and crankset. A great groupset that will be offered at a competitive price, pity that it is very difficult to find a bike with the groupset adopted in complete. For functionality and performance, weight aside, it is very similar to a Deore. An excellent result.
